Representatives from these chapters interact with elected officials and staff at all levels of government. The chapters primarily focus on local government:
- Boards of Supervisors
- City Councils
- School Boards
- Water Districts
They closely monitor local meeting agendas for issues affecting the building industry and represent the BIASC membership at these meetings.
Representatives from the local chapters also educate local building officials on issues affecting the building industry. BIASC chapters help elected officials and staff wade through tough policy issues such as inclusionary zoning, fiscalization of land use and development of impact fees to understand that housing is not only a "net plus" but essential to a strong and stable community.
Through the BIASC Political Action Committee, BIASC's chapters recommend financial support of candidates to BIASC PAC trustees.
