The Bill Polley BUILD-PAC Award was established in 2000 by NAHB's BUILD-PAC to recognize the most outstanding associate member advocate on the local, state and national levels. Named in honor of the late Bill Polley, a past NAHB Associate, BUILD-PAC Subcommittee Chair and Associate Members Committee member, the award acknowledges the associate member who epitomizes Mr. Polley’s ardent loyalty and diligent fundraising efforts for BUILD-PAC.
Award recipients are selected based on their demonstrated BUILD-PAC advocacy including leadership roles in BUILD-PAC fundraising at the local, state and national level; efforts to increase associate members’ understanding of the important of BUILD-PAC and to encourage grassroots participation and growth; and overall enthusiasm and service.
A panel of three judges consisting of a past NAHB Associate Members Committee chair, BUILD-PAC subcommittee chair and BUILD-PAC subcommittee vice chair, review the nominations received and select a recipient based on the aforementioned criteria.
The award is presented at the Associates' Awards Reception annually at the International Builders' Show.
