SWMBIA is the authority and the voice of the home building and remodeling industry for Southwest Montana. SWMBIA supports our members through advocacy, networking, and education to ensure the quality of life in the communities we build.
As our region grows, we seek to ensure that Southwest Montana can sustain three vital pieces of the home-building puzzle. Vibrant communities, partnership between local building and maintenance businesses, and information on the latest news in legislation at the local, state, and national levels.
SWMBIA is an affiliate of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the Montana Building Industry Association (MBIA). We aim to create the best communities in Southwest Montana for residents and business owners.
Professional Women In Building
We are proud to maintain a council for Professional Women in Building. Our PWB council is dedicated to promoting, enhancing, and supporting women within the home building industry, leading to a happier, more diverse workplace for all.
Our council for Professional Women in Building is supported by both our efforts and the efforts of the resources the NAHB and MBIA provide to their members.
I moved to Montana to provide a better life for my family. And that's why serving SWMBIA is essential. Because we fight for positive growth in our communities, benefiting our families and the local businesses that create housing and developments for us all.
