As Australia's peak residential building industry association, HIA's mission is to promote policies and provide services that enhance members' business practices and profitability. These are consistent with the highest professional and commercial conduct standards – our dedicated national team delivers this mission.

HIA is divided into geographic regions that provide a state, territory or local focus. By working to a regional then national committee structure, HIA ensures that our members' needs and ideas are heard at the highest level.

Our people are responsible for supporting over 20,000 member businesses and 60,000 individual members Australia-wide – all day, every day.

From coast to country, our team of directors are the backbone of our organisation and dedicated to supporting our members and industry.


There is nothing more important to HIA than its members and people
Graham Wolfe, HIA Managing Director
