Many know the St. George Area Parade of Homes, but don’t know that SUHBA is the host! With the desire to strengthen the PR and awareness for their organization, they came to EKR for help. 

As of 2023, SUHBA was 29 in the nation for home builders associations and the largest in the state of Utah with the only Government Affairs representative on staff. We used this and other research to build personas and a PR messaging guide. Then, we proposed tactics for public relations work above and beyond expectations including a newsletter for government officials, media relations, and a podcast!
