In the August Chairman’s Update with NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke, members learn about recent victories NAHB achieved in the lumber and supply chain arena. Importantly, NAHB was part of a White House supply chain summit, featuring administration officials including Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge, Assistant to the President and Director of the National Economic Council Brian Deese, Assistant to the President and Director of the Domestic Policy Council Ambassador Susan Rice, and Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers Cecelia Rouse. The meeting provided a forum to discuss issues and possible solutions related to the supply chain, and specifically lumber.

Another important marker was the $50 million in earned media that NAHB has garnered in the past year, with over 11,000 news articles featuring NAHB’s economic data and leadership insights on the lumber crisis. While lumber prices have dropped in recent weeks, NAHB continues its push for long-term solutions, including increased production by U.S. lumber mills and a new trade agreement with Canada.
