From: Randy Noel, 2014 Chairman, NAHB Resolutions Committee
Date: March 1, 2014

All resolutions and recommendations to be considered at the 2014 Spring Board of Directors Meeting should be submitted to NAHB by Wednesday, May 7 as required by the NAHB bylaws. The intent of this requirement is to provide directors, local HBAs and association leaders with drafts of proposed resolutions before the meeting to ensure the fullest possible grassroots discussion of policy proposals and encourage greater participation among directors  at NAHB board meetings.

Additionally, the Resolutions Committee will implement NAHB’s Sunset Review”process for resolutions and recommendations adopted or reaffirmed in 2010. The committees and councils with primary oversight of these policies should review the NAHB Policy Due to Expire handbook and submit their recommendations to the Resolutions Committee through Jessica Lynch by Friday, April 18. These resolutions and recommendations must be reaffirmed with no changes.   

Please note:

  • All resolutions/recommendations must be submitted by a director currently serving on the NAHB Board of Directors by May 7 to the Chairman of the Board and NAHB staff.
  • The full resolution should be emailed, faxed or mailed to Kevin Kelly, Chairman of the Board, through Jessica Lynch at NAHB. Jessica’s email address is Her telephone number is 800-368-5242, x8401. Her fax number is 202-266-8097.
  • Resolutions submitted after the 30-day deadline will still be considered at the upcoming board meeting, but they will require a two-thirds vote (rather than a simple majority vote) for passage by the board.
  • A summary of all resolutions to be considered during the meeting will be posted on the NAHB website the week of May 12. This summary will briefly describe each resolution and will include the name of the original sponsor, the committees/councils to which the resolution has been referred and the name of the NAHB staff contact for that particular policy. A full text of the proposed resolutions will also be posted.
