2005 Ground is broken on a new building to house the Association. It is in the same location as the old building, but because of stunning growth in services and the age of the existing building, a new, much larger structure was built. The first phase of the two-part construction process was completed in November, and the staff was able to move into the new section at that time. The second phase began shortly afterward, with the total reconstruction of the original building.

GSBA Risk Management Services staff that had previously been working from a satellite office moved into the revamped office space, thus joining all staff under one roof with room for future growth.
