About MBA

MBA Identity Statement 

We advance our mission of supporting and promoting the residential building industry and seek to foster an environment where members can be more successful.  We provide outstanding programs, events, professional resources and advocacy work that directly benefits our members. 

Our members, located in Waukesha, Milwaukee, Jefferson, Ozaukee and Washington counties, benefit from the three tiers of our Federation:  National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), Wisconsin Builders Association (WBA) and locally - Metropolitan Builders Association of Greater Milwaukee (MBA).
