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 region, and it covers a nine-state region: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Southeastern 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 advance 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.
