Who We Are

NLBMDA's Vision

Advancing the legislative, code and regulatory interests of the lumber and building material industry.

NLBMDA’s Mission Statement

The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) is the recognized voice and resource of the Lumber and Building Material industry to federal legislators and regulatory agencies in Washington DC. NLBMDA provides its members the resources and education to comply with federal laws, codes, and regulations. NLBMDA identifies challenges and growth opportunities to the industry and collaborates with its Federated Association Partners to develop solutions that require national implementation.


Founded in 1917, the association represents over 6,000 member locations operating single or multiple lumber yards and component plants serving homebuilders, subcontractors, general contractors, and consumers in the new construction, repair and remodeling of residential and light commercial structures.

Today's lumber and building material (LBM) dealer is typically an active community member; the supplier of choice for professional contractors, builders, and remodelers; and a resource for those seeking reliable service, quality materials, kitchen and bath showrooms, and expert advice on do-it-yourself projects. The LBM dealer in your area may also manufacture and distribute trusses, millwork, doors or windows; or provide installation services from framing to insulation to garage doors.
