As a member of the HBAF, you are a part of a large network of industry professionals. Member teams are smaller groups of members who work to plan, implement and oversee specific projects within the HBAF. Joining a team is the best way to learn about the HBAF operations and meet other members. Joining a team will also give you unique opportunities to develop leadership skills and gain exposure for you and your company. In order for HBAF projects to remain fresh and exciting a cross section of the membership needs to serve on a team.
