Latest News

In an effort to better service our members, the Greater Atlanta HBA will be transitioning to new membership management software in the coming week. The new software, WebLink Connect, is the industry’s leading web-based membership management software. It will give our staff better tools to help the organization work more efficiently and provide greater benefits to you as a member.

You will notice changes immediately in how you are able to RSVP for events simply by clicking in an email invite, as well as enhanced billing, calendar features and member profile management.

Some other features will include:

  • Intuitive user interface
  • Make easy updates to your member directory listing, including logo uploads, social media and key contact information
  • Opportunities for enhanced member directory online listings
  • Responsive design will work on any internet device, anytime, from desktop to laptop, tablet and smartphone.

 

Be on the lookout for your user name and password to access the new system. You should receive this by the end of next week.

Thank you for your patience as we make this transition.

Use 7 Key Numbers to help you earn greater profits with less time and energy. Many builders and contractors struggle to get a clear picture of where their business is at the moment - and where it's headed financially. By the time you compare your accounting reports with your job costing, estimating and change orders, and pipeline, it's too late to make adjustments to guarantee profit. This book will help you see where you stand every day, with every job, by monitoring just 7 Key Numbers that drive all profits and cash flow, including:

  • Number of leads
  • Sales conversion rate
  • Customer retention rate 

Stay on top of every job! Follow the steps in this book to create a process that will let you know when costs or scheduling deviate from the estimate-in time to respond before those changes cost you money.

Member Price: $30
