THIA will be hosting an “Industry Conference” in the fall of 2016 for a day of progressive education and updates on tiny home living and the tiny home lifestyle. Industry leaders, DIY pioneers, financial partners, and product and technology providers will come together to share their ideas and unveil the newest tiny home developments in an open forum designed to engage and enlighten our growing industry. In the future will “dovetail” and schedule our Industry Conference following the Tiny House Jamboree in August each year and potentially expand it to two days for workshops, exhibits, a DIY Showcase and Technology Demonstrations. Watch our website for updates!

Discounted Tickets to The National Tiny House Jamobree
All THIA Members receive discounted tickets to the annual Tiny House Jamboree, both as attendees, and as possible future exhibitors, builders, developers, etc. This is a new Industry in the making and our annual Tiny House Jamboree is our primary platform for showing and demonstrating change. THIA will continue to support and encourage the growth and influence of the Jamboree along multiple fronts.
Tiny Touring Program
THIA is in the early stages of developing a unique directory and discounting service for our Tiny Home Industry Association members that will be focused on supporting the developing Tiny Home Resorts marketplace. Once developed and offered online on our website, you, as THIA “Buyers/DIYers/Enthusiasts” members, will be able to access or exclusive “Online Tiny Touring Booking and Scheduling” system to secure discounted rates for Tiny Home stays at Tiny Home Resorts. As more Tiny Home Friendly Resorts come online, you’ll get immediate access to them on a discounted basis. Look for this in Q1/Q2 2017 on our web-site.
Access To Advocacy
As an Industry ACTION Association… THIA aims to support the tiny home lifestyle and the global housing paradigm shift by advocating for the many benefits that Tiny Houses provide. We realize that we have to shape a lot of new thinking, push against a lot of boundaries, and to continue to promote environmental consciousness, fiscal responsibility, selfsufficiency, and life simplification for our members.
With your membership to THIA you will be able to “plug-in” to the process to help suggest and collaborate on ways to assist THIA on developing legislative policy and encouraging local municipalities to take up the challenge of developing low cost housing solutions for their local communities. Through our online membership forums you can communicate directly with the thought leaders of the Tiny House Industry to provide feedback and recommendations to help them achieve their goals.
