Cheers to our Top Spikes

Filed in Membership by on May 13, 2016 4 Comments

Every month, we recognize the top recruiters in each region: the Spikes who are spreading the great news about membership in their HBAs and the NAHB Federation.

Thanks again to the top recruiters in January. Now we are catching up with February and March. These dedicated members recruited the most new members to our association earlier this year:

February 2016

Region A: William Harrison Jr., West Branch-Susquehanna Builders Association (Pennsylvania)

Region B: Jerry Cowan, Greater Greensboro Builders Association (North Carolina)

Region C: Jeff Thomas, HBA of Fort Wayne (Indiana)

Region D: Leslie Woods, Greater Houston Builders Association (Texas)

Region E: Dennis Poppe, MBA of King & Snohomish Counties (Washington)

Jerry Cowan of Builders Mutual Insurance Company had some simple advice for other members.

“Ninety-five percent of the people I have recruited over the years had never been asked. Bottom line: You ask! Then share your passion for the Federation and how they could benefit from being an active member.”

March 2016

Region A: Bob Ernst, Builders & Remodelers Association of Greater Boston

Region B: Kyle Murphy, Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders (Alabama)

Region C: Frank Makoski, HBA of Greater Cleveland (Ohio)

Region D: Leslie Woods, Greater Houston Builders Association (Texas)

Region E: S. Robert August, HBA of Metropolitan Denver (Colorado)
pen Kyle Murphy of Murphy Home Builders LLC, says, “As a builder member and current president of the GBAHB, I encourage every vendor and contractor that I do business with to be a member. I educate them on the benefit of the NAHB and GBAHB to our industry. I also understand that not every member can spend the time to be involved, but I also ask them to become members regardless so that they can help strengthen and support other members that do stand up for them and our industry and create a voice for us all.”

Recruiting new members to your local association is an activity recognized and rewarded through the Spike Club. Those who participate are among NAHB’s most valued members. For more membership tips and tricks, contact Brace Ford at 800-368-5242 x8286.
