Long Island Builders Institute (LIBI) is a non-profit organization that
strives to make, “Long Island a better place to live and work”. Since
it was founded in 1941, LIBI has been advocating responsible building
and remodeling while providing beneficial business and consumer
LIBI is an association of dedicated building industry professionals
whose members have built most of the “5,000 or more homes produced on
Long Island each year,” an impressive statistic.
Today, it’s all about who you know, and the most important
business technique is networking. LIBI members are given the
opportunity to network with other members of the trade, and as a result,
can learn and exchange helpful information.
One of the largest networking opportunities provided by LIBI is the
annual LIBI Associates Trade Show. Each year, the show is held for the
trade only, allowing them to market their products and services to all
builders and contractors on Long Island. This year, however, LIBI is
trying something a little different.
In response to the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, The
Long Island Builders Institute presents, “Superstorm Resource Expo”
which is now open to the public as well as the trade. Consumers have
the opportunity to meet hundreds of local experts who will answer
questions and provide the advice needed in moving forward.
