More About Our Company

Mission Statement

Chartered in 1959, the Las Cruces Home Builders Association is comprised of members of the building industry and its affiliates. As the voice of the building industry, we serve our members and the community by:

  • Promoting balanced economic development;
  • Providing education; and
  • Promoting professionalism

The Las Cruces Home Builders Association remains committed to improving our community’s quality of life.


A word from our 2015 President, Max Bower

Max Bower – Red Mesa Design President


The LCHBA is working constantly to benefit you and your business in the following ways:

Advocate for the building industry with the City and County.  We are the first and sometimes only line of defense against increased costs and regulations, like the impact fees that we defeated last year.  We currently are fighting for your business on multiple issues.

Promote the building industry through special events, like the Showcase of Homes, the Home and Garden Show, and the Fall Living in Las Cruces Home Tour.  These events generate tremendous enthusiasm and increased sales for your business.

Provide educational opportunities through continuing education classes, luncheon seminars, opportunities to meet with political leaders, and communication of important industry information, on national, state, and local levels.

There are many other benefits from joining the HBA, including networking opportunities with other leaders in the building community, and of course the large insurance rate discounts offered only to HBA members through Builder Trust.

The more members we have, the stronger our voice becomes.  During these difficult economic times, we must be united.


Thanks for all your great work.  Let’s keep building Las Cruces and Southern New Mexico together.

Jackalope Cup Golf Scramble

He’s ba-a-a-a-ck…SEPTEMBER 18th the Jackalope will be set free. Spaces will be on sale soon. Check your email for details! Held once a year among the fairways of the legendary Red Hawk Golf Club, this 4-man Golf Scramble pits teams against a “somewhat unconventional” course where the sinister Jackalope lurks robbing unsuspecting golfers of their rightful pursuit of treasure and glory.
