The Brick Industry Association (BIA) is the national trade association representing distributors and manufacturers of clay brick and suppliers of related products and services. BIA’s primary mission is to increase the market share of clay brick and safeguard the industry. Since its founding in 1934, the association has been the nationally recognized authority on clay brick construction and represents the industry in all model building code forums and national standards committees. BIA is involved in a broad range of activities that appeal to architects, builders, community officials, and consumers, including Technical Notes on Brick Construction, Brick in Architecture, Brick In Home Building, Builder Notes, national awards competitions, educational seminars, and numerous other programs.
Lobbyit.com became our lobbying firm at the start of November 2012. Prior to then the Brick Industry Association (BIA) had a full time employee in charge of government relations. After interviewing traditional lobbying firms, qualified individuals and firms similar to Lobbyit, it became apparent to me that Lobbyit.com offered the services desired by BIA at the best price. The Lobbyit staff’s positive and action-oriented attitude was the convincing attribute.
Lobbyit communicates effectively with my staff and members and has received accolades
from them. I can say without equivocation that Lobbyit.com has surpassed what I expected
and I give them a most deserved and excellent recommendation.
