The Value of an HPBA Membership
The purpose of a trade association is to band together to promote our common business interests and to defend those interests from excessive or misguided regulation.
As a member of the Hearth Industry, professional representation should be a part of your long term business plan. Relative to other trade associations our dues are very reasonable. But, like all good shoppers, we want to know exactly what we are getting for our money.
