Top Member Recruiters Vie for a Trip to Napa Valley


From Sept. 1 through Nov. 30, local home builder associations across the country have been hosting membership drives to recruit new members as well as strengthen their existing membership. Not only do members benefit from a larger and stronger home building community, the top member recruiters are also rewarded for their efforts.

Signature Kitchen Suite is once again offering an exciting incentive to the top nine Builder members who recruit the most new* Builder and Associate members: An all-inclusive trip to the LG and Signature Kitchen Suite Experience and Design Center in Napa Valley, Calif. Those who go will experience luxury wine tasting and gourmet cooking demos, and they’ll also get to make connections with other NAHB members from around the country.

This year, if you’re a Builder or their Affiliate member and actively recruiting, you could be one of the winners.

Watch the video below to hear from previous winners and get a behind-the-scenes recap of what some have said was the trip of a lifetime.
