How to Join the 50+ Housing Council

Join the 50+ Housing Council Today!The NAHB 50+ Housing Council supports members by providing nationally recognized education programs, industry research, networking opportunities, specialized publications, awards and recognition programs, and regulatory and legislative assistance to 50+ housing professionals.

To join, you must be a member of NAHB. If your state or local HBA operates a local council, you should join locally. If no council is operating in your area, you can purchase an at-large membership for $100.

  1. Join online. Any NAHB member logged into the NAHB website can become an at-large council member. If you aren't logged in, or don't have your PIN number (which you will need to create a login), call the Membership staff at 800-368-5242 x8347 or the 50+ staff at x8550 for assistance.
  2. Download a 50+ Housing Council membership application form and fax it to the number on the form.
  3. Call the 50+ Housing Council staff at 800-368-5242 x8550 and they will take your registration information over the phone.
