BIA Regions

Under the BIA umbrella, there are two geographic regions that are governed by their own Board of Directors, deploy their own externally focused, region-wide programming and set their own assessment levels.

BIA Heartland Region

The BIA Heartland Region represents the Midwest clay brick manufacturers and covers Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. BIA Heartland has a real interest in educating local communities about brick, which is the foundation for its program of complimentary community planning assistance and consultation. Additionally, the stand-alone Colorado Brick Council is part of this region.

BIA Southeast Region

The BIA Southeast Region is the largest brick area, and it covers a nine-state region: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Southeast Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The region offers a wide array of educational and technical services for homebuyers, builders, masons and architects, as well as a comprehensive marketing program to promote the benefits of building with brick.  The region is dedicated to ensuring that all phases of brick construction - from initial planning though specification and construction - run smoothly and correctly.

BIA Brick Councils

Under the BIA umbrella, there are several brick councils that are governed by their own Board of Directors, deploy their own externally focused, region-wide programming and set their own assessment levels. Most companies in local councils pay dues to BIA National, but membership is open to all companies who have a vested interest in the success of the clay brick industry.
