Associates: Good for Your HBA, Good for Your Business

Filed in Committees and Councils, Membership by on September 28, 2017 1 Comment

NAHB Associates are a vital component of the Federation. They support the industry in many different capacities as building suppliers, service providers, product manufacturers and more.

As Associate Members Appreciation Month draws to a close, we’d like to highlight 10 reasons to be grateful for Associate members:

  1. Associates support NAHB at the local, state and national levels.
  2. Associates volunteer time, talent and treasure to help the association accomplish its goals.
  3. Associates recruit their colleagues and business contacts to become members.
  4. Associates serve on committees and councils, gaining valuable networking opportunities while helping to advance the association’s mission.
  5. Associates are strong supporters of local and state PACs and BUILD-PAC.
  6. Associates are a major source of non-dues revenue through sponsorships, advertising and other strategic partnerships.
  7. Associate members represent a diverse range of industries and specialties, but the one thing they have in common is that they all support the home building industry. If there is a product or service you need, there is an associate member who can provide it.
  8. As industry partners, Associates are a valuable resource for business and management tips.
  9. By doing business with an Associate, you increase the value of membership for all members of your HBA.
  10. Associates are heavily invested in your business success: You win, they win!

Be sure to encourage your fellow home builders and remodelers to do business with the valued Associate members of your HBA.

Showing Appreciation

Many HBAs around the country took the opportunity this month to show their Associate members their appreciation. The Southern Utah Home Builders Association held their annual Associate Member Appreciation BBQ in September. The event drew the attendance of more than 200 outstanding Associates and their families.
