NAHB advocates on a number of issues across the country that permeate all aspects of the housing industry. The Federation works at all levels — local, state and national — to bring attention to the impact that certain issues and regulations can have on the home-building industry and how that, in turn, can affect consumers and the overall community.
In addition to educating communities on key housing issues, the Federation regularly collaborates with legislators to inform them on the impact certain legislation can have on home building. NAHB supports pro-housing candidates through various tools, including the Defender of Housing Award and BUILD-PAC contributions. In the 2019-20 election cycle, 95% of the 355 candidates whom NAHB supported through BUILD-PAC won their seats.
This could not have been done without the support of NAHB members. But with every House seat and 34 Senate seats up for election this cycle, plus a number of new districts following the 2020 census, BUILD-PAC support is more important than ever.
This election cycle, the Associates have a goal of recruiting more of its membership to become BUILD-PAC contributors. Just 1% of Associate membership is three times larger than the 2019-2020 membership for Gold Key Club, Platinum Club and Capitol Club combined. And Associate members who are already contributing to BUILD-PAC can help further by recruiting more Associate contributors.
Members can learn more about BUILD-PAC and how to get involved at nahb.org.
Do you know a stellar Associate member who already actively supports BUILD-PAC? Nominate him or her for a Associate Advocate of BUILD-PAC Award. Applications are due Oct. 7.
