UDI-Calgary/CHBA-Calgary Region
Merger Design Project

Why are we exploring a merger?

Strong voice, united message
Stakeholders feel that the Industry requires a stronger voice. A unified organization with a clear message and multiple member’s voices could be more effective in advocating for its members.

Strength in numbers
Stakeholders feel that an organization with greater human and financial resources could be more effective in advocating for their interests. An organization with greater resource capacity and a greater membership base could develop a ‘critical mass’, which could draw in other associations, increasing the strength of the organization.

Consolidating industry
Stakeholders feel that UDI-Calgary and CHBA-Calgary will be required to respond to changing market conditions that result in a consolidating building industry. Many members are already involved with both organizations, and a proactive response to industry consolidation through a merger could benefit membership.
