NAHB’s Associate member awards offer individuals a number of opportunities to be acknowledged for their remarkable contributions to the housing industry at the local, state and national levels.
- The Associate of the Year award honors one associate member who has made outstanding contributions to their local, state and national HBAs and to the home building industry in the past year. Michael LeCorgne is the 2019 Associate of the Year.
- The Bill Polley Advocate of BUILD-PAC award recognizes an associate member who has made diligent efforts on behalf of BUILD-PAC. Billy Ray won this award in 2019.
- The Builders Engaging Associate Members (BEAM) pays tribute to builders who make an outstanding effort to do business with Associate members. Alan Van Why is the 2019 BEAM award winner.
- The One to Watch Award is given to an outstanding young professional in the industry. Rachel Williams won this award in 2019.
Each local is invited to submit one nominee for each award directly to national. States are still encouraged to submit one nominee for each award directly to national as well. Each award is still weighted to award an individual who has excelled at the local, state and national level, and nominations should reflect that participation.
Awards are presented to recipients during the Associates of Excellence Awards program held annually at the NAHB International Builders’ Show. Premier Partners sponsors and the Associate Committee leadership are also recognized.
