The midterm elections are around the corner to Tuesday, Nov. 8. However, although Election Day is just one day of the year, fundraising for pro-housing candidates is a year-round commitment for NAHB.

BUILD-PAC, NAHB’s bipartisan political arm, works to support pro-housing candidates by hosting dozens of events and campaigns throughout the year to inform and engage members.

Thanks to the critical contributions of NAHB members, BUILD-PAC, coupled with NAHB’s advocacy efforts, has consistently achieved numerous legislative wins. As a result, member contributors have seen direct returns on their investment in the form of pro-housing policies and governance.

“Elections have significant consequences on both the national and local levels,” said Keith Wingfield, president of River Rock Builders. “Taking that first step to getting involved and contributing to BUILD-PAC helped put me on a path to position my business for success.”

As government policies continue to evolve, business owners increasingly recognize how certain political outcomes will impact their business operations. So, access to the Federation’s resources has helped a growing number of NAHB members make informed voting decisions on their way to the polls.

“If I don’t contribute to BUILD-PAC and get involved, I’m out of business,” said Bob Peterson, owner of Associates in Building and Design Ltd.

Beyond supporting pro-housing candidates, BUILD-PAC has helped motivate members to participate in key issues and work as a unified voice on Capitol Hill.

“NAHB and BUILD-PAC have the ability to collectively move the needle on issues important to us,” said Mike Riddle, owner of Mike Riddle Construction. “I believe in the power of the Federation to elevate pressing policies and regulations and deliver for the membership.”
