Dues & Info:

Associate: $445.00 per year
Affiliate: $250.00 per year

Builder members are individuals having a residential or commercial building license from the Louisiana State Licensing Board for contractors. If you have a license, you must apply as a builder member.  Developers are also considered builder members even though they may not have a license.

Associate members are those in fields which support the building industry such as painters, electricians, real estate agents, mortgage lenders, etc. If someone in a company already has an AHBA membership, another employee of the same company may join as an Affiliate member and will receive all of the same benefits as Associate members.

Annual dues include membership in the Acadian Home Builders Association (AHBA), the Louisiana Home Builders Association (LHBA), and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) plus a voluntary contribution of $10 each to the local and state Political Action Committees ($20 total).

Home for the Holidays


Home for the Holidays is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and annual project of the Acadian Home Builders Association (AHBA) and KATC-TV 3. Each year, the builder and associate members of AHBA build a brand new, state-of-the-art home which is given away in a raffle drawing right before Christmas. Proceeds from raffle ticket sales are dedicated to local, shelter-related charities including Lafayette Habitat for Humanity, Faith House, Healing House, and St. Michael’s Center for Veterans. So far, AHBA and KATC have been able to donate over $1.2 Million to these charities since the project’s conception in 2005.
