Welcome to BIASC
Message from the CEO

Hello BIASC Members,

When something bad happens, you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you."

As the health pandemic continues to weaken the economy, our industry faces unprecedented challenges. No one has been immune to the impact of this crisis. Whether you're a new or a long-time member of BIASC, the value of your membership should not be based on how the BIASC serves you in a strong economy or housing market, but on how we support you in times like these.

Your membership is the lifeblood of this organization. Despite any changes we make, we can assure you that BIASC will continue to provide a strong advocacy front, regardless of any challenges our industry may be faced with. The spiraling effects of this pandemic have led to major policy changes and discussions at every level of government. We certainly have seen the impact of this hitting close to home.

Over the last three weeks, BIASC sent over 15,000 emails to elected officials through our new digital advocacy platform as part of our continuing efforts to help protect our industry, with more on the way. As our industry continues to aggressively pursue new initiatives while trying to maintain essential programs, all chapters will remain open for business. Our chapters are our powerhouses, and together we will battle forward.

Recently, we have made several changes to BIASC to help better communicate, educate, and mobilize our members.

A few examples include: We appreciate your continued support and patience as we battle forward.
BIASC Scores Major Victory!

At the urging of BIASC, our partners in the business community, and residents from throughout the region, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has agreed to delay their vote on the final Connect SoCal plan by 120 days.

The battle is not over. BIASC will continue to work with our coalition partners and SCAG's leadership to ensure that the final Connect SoCal plan supports new home construction and strengthens the economy.

Please take the time to send a quick message to your SCAG representatives, thanking them for their support.
