Each Council works within PHBA to focus on a particular need of our members and works as a way to facilitate positive change within our community and to enhance opportunities through peer networks, events, and education.
Sales and Marketing Council
As an SMC member, individuals benefit from networking and learning from other professionals through educational courses, technical publications, idea exchange programs and consumer-orientated research. They are also privy to members-only awards and special recognition. The Council serves to: promote professional standards among sales and marketing personnel, provide educational workshops, seminars and a cohesive network among members, improve lines of communication from the consumer to professional builders and recognize and reward marketing professionals in the home building industry.

Peninsula Remodelers Council
A group of business owners founded the Peninsula Remodelers Council in 1980 to promote professionalism, integrity and quality work within the remodeling industry. Pledging to adhere to a Code of Ethics, members wanted to make it easier for the public to hire qualified and honest contractors. Today, PRC is made up of remodelers, subcontractors and suppliers who also are members of the Peninsula Housing & Builders Association, as well as NAHB Remodelers.
Remodeling a home can add more space for a growing family, meet the needs of an aging population and increase a home’s resale value. As the remodeling industry grows, the Peninsula Remodelers Council will continue to offer tips on how to plan for improvements and select a qualified remodeler to take the guesswork and surprises out of your remodeling experience. PRC strives to counsel consumers by providing information about how to select and interview a contractor and what to expect during a remodeling project.
