Whether you are standing before a local city council or planning commission to explain the benefits of a development, or standing before a five-judge panel to win a national oral advocacy competition, there is always a take-away. As an organization active in voicing concerns about housing and growth management issues, the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties encourages its members to engage with city staff and elected officials to help educate them about our issues.
