About US

The Southern Southeast Alaska Building Association (SSEABIA) was organized in August 1996, by a core group of 15 local homebuilders as the Ketchikan HomeBuilders Association. Our purpose in forming an association was to offer a forum for local builders and associates to meet and discuss ideas, issues, problems, etc., network with related industry professionals and to work together towards solutions and goals that would benefit our building professionals and customers. We changed our name to Southern Southeast Alaska Building Industry Association in January of 2004 to reflect the true membership base & focus of our organization.
