The NBA is the premier association for government, businesses and individuals involved in sustainable development building green on brown.
The NBA is the only group that represents the wide array of brownfield stakeholders—property owners, developers, investors, service professionals and government representatives. Membership is designed to meet the needs of professionals, whether an individual or a group. NBA’s strength comes from its network, where professionals can meet share ideas and exchanges experiences.
NBA’s mission is carried out through three primary conduits—information, education, and events. We are the go-to organization for information on the brownfield market, and through our website, email updates and NBA’s Dirt-E-Talk newsletter, we have the ability to keep our members well informed of changing market conditions, projects, redevelopment opportunities, policy and legislation.
