Builders Association of the Twin Cities Announces Rebranding of Advocacy Program, Changes Program Name to Housing First Minnesota

The Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) is pleased to announce the new name and logo of its advocacy program, Housing First Minnesota. The new name and brand allows for deeper engagement with a broader industry audience. Housing First Minnesota invites the entire industry to engage in its modern, comprehensive advocacy program.

We have discovered that our advocacy program has outgrown its name and needs to reflect the statewide reach of our efforts and the growth of the housing movement. We are excited to take this important step forward,” said Housing First Minnesota Executive Director David Siegel. “Housing First Minnesota reflects that we are the first resource on housing issues, and ties to our strategic goal to elevate housing as a top issue that policy makers and influencers consider.

While the advocacy brand is changing, BATC’s other brands including the Parade of Homes, Remodelers Showcase and Artisan Home Tour remain unchanged. 

"The demand for a strong industry voice has never been greater, and we are looking forward to a new era in our advocacy efforts." said Bob Michels, the 2017 President of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities and Housing First Minnesota. “What BATC members have built over the years is now positioned to take the housing movement to new heights.”
