Builders looking to send a message to Congress that it needs to take action to keep housing and the economy moving forward should mark their calendar now for the most important grassroots event of the year — the 2017 NAHB Legislative Conference. The conference is on Wednesday, June 14 and is a day-long event that coincides with the NAHB Midyear Board of Directors Meeting in Washington, D.C.
We are exactly seven days away from when NAHB members will have the opportunity to participate in in-district congressional meetings March 7-11.
Next week, members across the Federation will be Bringing Housing Home™ by meeting with their federal lawmakers in their home districts to discuss issues that are important to home builders, remodelers and others in our industry.
NAHB has developed several resources to help HBAs schedule and prepare for their in-district meetings with federal lawmakers.
NAHB Chairman Ed Brady and First Vice Chairman Granger MacDonald this week conducted two days of meetings with Democratic and Republican leaders in both chambers of Congress to urge lawmakers to pursue a strong national agenda for housing.
As part of Bringing Housing Home™, members of the Building Industry Association’s Southern California Los Angeles-Ventura Chapter held productive meetings last week with Reps. Maxine Waters (D-Calif., 43rd district) and Steve Knight (R-Calif., 25th district).
It started as a quick fix to accommodate a change in the congressional calendar and turned into a smashing success all over the country. Now, Bringing Housing Home™ returns to the NAHB calendar of events March 9-13, 2015. That week, every NAHB member is encouraged to meet with U.S. representatives and senators in their home offices and talk to them about the pressing national issues that affect the home building industry and their clients – and what we’d like Washington to do about it.
It’s been a long, exhausting and very exhilarating week for everyone who stepped up for ‘Bringing Housing Home’ to deliver NAHB’s legislative agenda to Congress and to discuss key issues of importance in your local communities. Bringing Housing Home, our in-district 2014 Legislative Conference, was a huge success! Members held more than 225 meetings with […]

As a result, NAHB will not hold its […]
