HOMEPAC, TAB's political action committee, is an essential part of TAB's advocacy program. HOMEPAC maximizes political contributions by association members by supporting pro-housing candidates and incumbents for both statewide office and the Texas Legislature. It is through voluntary contributions that HOMEPAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the residential construction and development industry in Texas.
Changes in state law or regulations can be detrimental to your business. Your contribution to HOMEPAC is an investment in the future of our industry and one of the most affordable options for political involvement.

The Texas Association of Builders will be hosting its HOMEPAC FUNdango and the fifth straight Statewide Washers Championship and Buy-In Tournament on August 7 at the Hilton Anatole, the night prior to the 2018 Sunbelt Builders Show™ doors opening. Both tournaments will benefit HOMEPAC and are great events for members to engage in the state association. The 2017 FUNdango was enjoyed by hundreds of builders and their families in an effort to support the residential home building industry. Tickets for the FUNdango and the tournaments can be purchased online while registering for Sunbelt and TAB’s Summer Board of Directors meetings.
For questions on the event, contact Sloan Landre at Sloan@TexasBuilders.org or at (512) 476-6346.
For local HOMEPAC fundraising events, contact the Executive Officer of your Local Home Builders Association.
Without HOMEPAC’s participation, decisions affecting the future of the residential building industry will be influenced by other industries and groups, many of whom represent interests directly opposed to our own. It’s only through the voluntary contributions of our members that HOMEPAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the home building and development industry in Texas.
