The Home Builders Association of Lake-Sumter is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Collectively, this board of directors sets goals and policy for the organization.

Elections are held annually in which the full membership of the HBA of Lake-Sumter has the opportunity to vote for the leadership best suited to serve on the board of directors.
The by-laws of the organization establish the rules and procedures of the organization as well as the qualifications for membership.
The staff of the Home Builders Association runs the day-to-day operations and management of the Association. The staff acts on behalf of the membership to carry out the policies set by the Board of Directors in the areas of advocacy, events and activities, and member services.
