Date: October 2, 2014

All resolutions and recommendations to be considered at the 2015 IBS Board of Directors Meeting should be submitted to NAHB by December 23 as required by the NAHB bylaws.

Please note:

  • All resolutions/recommendations must be submitted by a director currently serving on the NAHB Board of Directors by Dec. 23 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 should be posted on the NAHB website the week of December 29. 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.
