Latin Builders Association® Celebrates 40th Anniversary

The Latin Builders Association® (LBA), the largest Hispanic construction association in the United States, will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2011. Since inception in 1971, the LBA has strived to provide a vital forum for discussion, networking, training/development and representation at the local, state and federal level.

The LBA’s core goal is to represent and further the interests of the South Florida Community, the local building industry, and the individuals and companies that strive day after day to make our community a better place to live, work and play.

“We are grateful to have grown as an association and to have experienced the journey we have endured over the past 40 years,” said Noelia E. Moreno, President, Latin Builders Association®. “The LBA was first started because our fathers and grandfathers were looking to have access to the building opportunities in Florida and were eager to be welcomed into our community and, as a united front, they were able to experience much success and worked hard to become recognized and valued for their hard work. We look forward to continuing to make them proud and follow the lead that they have paved for us in the years to come while accepting change.”

Further defining the LBA’s commitment to the community is the LBA Children and Families Foundation which houses the organization’s philanthropic work to formalize and further extend LBA’s involvement and commitment to providing help to those in need. Even in the midst of tumultuous times, the association continues to recognize the importance of educating our future workforce and providing for those who benefit from a helping hand. LBA’s philanthropic ventures are made possible through the commitment of the members to help the community one child at a time.

Established in 1971 by a group of local contractors, Latin Builders Association, Inc. ® has embodied the interests of builders, developers, contractors, architects, engineers, plumbers, electricians and tradesmen associated with the business of construction, striving to provide a vital forum for discussion, networking, training/development, and representation at the local, state and federal level. Today, we are the largest Hispanic construction association in the United States, representing over 750 member companies throughout South Florida.
