Centrals at the International Builders' Show

The International Builders' Show features designated “Centrals,” special areas for members engaged in the fields of remodeling, custom building, multifamily, 55+ construction, design and sales. A variety of activities are available inside the Centrals including workshops, networking events, roundtable discussions and guided product tours of the exhibit hall. Each Central offers a specific area of focus within the building industry with its own schedule of events. Learn more.

20 Clubs Take Networking to a Whole New Level

NAHB's 20 Clubs are comprised of similar type builders or remodelers from non-competing markets who meet several times a year to share their knowledge and learn from each other. Members share and compare financial information, look for trouble spots, and offer each other advice on how to improve performance and increase profit margins. NAHB analysis indicates that 20 Club members perform better than non-members in financial growth and long-term success. Find out more.
