Member network

Because there is more to being an HIA member.

Member network

Because there is more to being an HIA member.

We know that there is more to you and your business than just building. Behind every successful builder is a team, whether it’s your spouse, business partner, designer, assistant or manufacturer we give your team access to specialised HIA networks that have been set up to support your business as it grows.

Business Partners

When it comes to the hard workers of the building industry, those who work ‘off-site’ do their fair share of the heavy lifting.

HIA’s Business Partners connects your spouse, business manager or admin support person to handy business guides, the latest business advice, networking and training events, and a range of useful easy to access information to make their job easier.


Building your business

While you’re busy running a building business, we are here with advice when you need it. We’d like you to think of us as your own personal assistant.

Constantly changing regulations and requirements combined with administration, marketing and business tasks is an enormous challenge. So, we provide professional and practical advice, and assistance on workplace, regulatory, business and legal matters.

We keep you up to date with regulation changes, trends and innovations, and stay on top of ongoing paperwork and industry requirements. HIA supports you by providing guides, including tips and templates, to help you juggle each day and plan for the future, plus a little bit of lighter content to inspire you or make you smile.

Stay connected 

When you are working in a small business or home office, it’s easy to feel cut off from information. And with the building industry continually changing, you need to know what’s happening. 

Our Business Partner network keeps you connected. As a member, you will be sent alerts and invited to be part of our growing community of building industry partner professionals. Connect online or in-person by attending events, workshops and join our forums.


The heart of our association is you – our members. Our community hub is a place where we can learn and support each other.
