NAHB is hosting a webinar series this month to help members and other industry professionals understand the current challenges with escalating lumber prices and supply chain issues, and learn how to develop strategies to adapt to this rising cost environment.
While NAHB continues to work on long-term policy solutions to improve the supply chain, builders can take action now to help manage the impact on their business operations.
The webinars are free for NAHB members, and replays will be available for all registrants.
