Membership provides you access to industry professionals in your home market and beyond. As a member of the world’s largest organization of builders and building industry suppliers, you can meet and network with colleagues, and join one of NAHB’s many councils. One council of specific interest to many Global Members is the Building Systems Councils, which is the voice of the systems-built housing industry that is dedicated to promoting the benefits of systems-built construction to consumers and builders.
Connect with nearly 60,000 attendees from more than 100 countries at the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS)®, the annual premier industry event that offers more than 100 educational programs and 1,700 combined exhibits that display cutting-edge housing products. Global Members are offered discounted rates to attend.
IBS also is the venue for the annual Global Innovation Award (GIA), presented to NAHB members who do business outside of the United States with the most cutting-edge, advanced and original product offerings and/or marketing strategies created by companies within the industry. Winners of this award also are highlighted during the year with industry-wide press releases, postings on our popular blog, NAHBNow, and in Global eNews Report stories.
Plus, only Global Members can join the NAHB Global Members LinkedIn Forum, a venue in which both Domestic and Global members can converse before, during and after IBS and throughout the year. You also receive a listing in NAHB’s Global Builders and Service Providers Directory, which opens the door to connect with over two million online visitors from around the world.
