How To Become a Member

If you are involved in the home building industry, we invite you to join NAHB.

Builders, Associates, and Affiliates

To become a member of NAHB, you must join the local home builders association (HBA) serving your area. When you join your local association, you automatically become a member of all three levels of the NAHB federation: local, state (where state associations exist), and national. That’s three memberships for the price of one!

To find the home builders association nearest you, use our online locator or call NAHB toll-free at 800-368-5242.

International Builders and Associates

International builders and associates join NAHB directly through NAHB headquarters in Washington, D.C. To learn more about International membership, contact NAHB’s International Affairs department at 800-368-5242 x8182.

Major National Suppliers

Leading building suppliers and service providers can participate in NAHB activities, affect housing issues, and gain direct access to NAHB members by joining The NAHB Leading Suppliers Council. Founded in 1964, the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council consists of distinguished building industry suppliers, as well as related building industry trade associations and builder service providers.

Membership is open to all building industry suppliers at a cost of $7,500 per year. To learn more, please contact Topher McLarty at 800-368-5242 x8247.
