  • facilitating research to identify and prioritize technical problems and support codes and standards development
  • coordinating meetings and forums and participating in other industry events to gather intelligence and provide timely information to members
  • collaborating with other CHBA councils and members to best support factory-built modular as a desirable construction option
  • reporting to Council members, the CHBA Board of Directors and all CHBA members
  • preparing communication tools to support the Council’s priority actions
