The Brick Industry Association (BIA) is the national trade association representing distributors and manufacturers of clay brick and suppliers of related products and services. The association has been the nationally recognized authority on clay brick construction since its founding in 1934, and it represents the industry in all building code forums and national standards committees. BIA provides a broad range of programs and services including online education and training classes; production, shipment and other data and statistics specific to the clay brick industry; Technical Notes on Brick Construction; Brick in Architecture; Brick in Home Building; Builder Notes; and a national awards contest. BIA strongly advocates on behalf of the clay brick industry at the federal and state levels. BIA staff educate city planners and elected officials about the many benefits of clay brick construction. These efforts have resulted in hundreds of masonry ordinances that require new construction to use a percentage of clay brick and other masonry cladding. See the membership benefits below for all of our membership types.

Contributing Associate Benefits Summary
Any business entity engaged in the manufacture of clay brick products in the United States and has total annual shipments of clay brick products equal to or less than the maximum limit approved by the Board of Directors is eligible to become an Associate Manufacturer Member.
In exchange for substantial dues discounts, an associate manufacturer (AM) membership is non-voting and receives limited benefits and staff access but AM member employees can attend National Sector spring and fall meetings and learn about the important work BIA is doing and can also network with other BIA members including the CEOs of our member companies at those meetings.
