Jim Chapman, a prominent figure in the home building industry and President of Jim Chapman Construction Group, officially announces his candidacy for Georgia State Representative at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). This move seeks to extend his impactful service, having maximized roles at local and state levels, to a national platform.

State and Local Contributions

Chapman’s career is marked by notable contributions and leadership within the housing sector. Locally, he led the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (GAHBA) as President in 2018 and has played a crucial role in the 55+ council, earning the status of Life Board Member. His leadership continued at the state level with a presidency in 2021, where he founded the ALL Program and chaired various influential committees. His accolades include the BEAM award in 2017 and multiple ‘Builder of The Year’ awards from several prestigious industry organizations.

Contributions to the National Association of Home Builders

On the national stage, Chapman’s commitment to the NAHB has been significant; he has chaired the 55+ Council, the Land Development Committee, the Single Family Committee, and BUILD-PAC, showcasing his dedication to advancing industry standards and policies.

State Representative Duties

As a State Representative, Chapman would serve a two-year term. This crucial role bridges state-level developments and national concerns, ensuring the NAHB leadership is well-informed of regional issues with broader implications. Additionally, State Representatives actively provide guidance and disseminate information on NAHB policies to local associations within their states. State Representatives also work closely with the National Area Chairmen to seek solutions to challenges and issues encountered within the Federation.

Reflecting on his experience, Chapman stated, “Serving at the local, state and national levels has been incredibly rewarding, and running for this national position is a natural progression of my commitment to our industry. I am eager to leverage my experience to influence national policies that benefit home builders and communities in Georgia and nationwide.”

Jim Chapman was honored this past year with the prestigious Lewis Cenker award, an accolade recognizing lifelong contributions to the housing industry, further cementing his stature as a leader ready to assume greater responsibilities at the NAHB. He was also named the Builder Member of the Year award by the Home Builders Association of Georgia (HBAG) in 2023.
