Welcome to the Manatee-Sarasota BIA


The Manatee-Sarasota Building Industry Association (MSBIA) is a membership driven networking and advocacy group focused on the needs of the building & development industry and related business in Manatee and Sarasota Counties.

As of November 2016, we have over 380 members comprised of builders, developers, local municipalities, consultants and supporting businesses. This gives us a significant voice when addressing issues that impact business and development in Southwest Florida. The association is affiliated with both the Florida Home Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders.

Our mission is to serve our membership by working to ensure a positive building environment.
