Rise in Female, Associate Membership Highlighted in NAHB's Member Census

Associate Members Committee

The portion of women within the housing industry continues to rise, as evidenced within NAHB’s latest annual member census.

The number of female NAHB members rose for the eighth consecutive year in 2022. Women now account for 26% of all Associates — NAHB’s largest community of members — and 11% of NAHB’s Builder members, which is an all-time high.

Other highlights from the census include:

  • Associate members account for 65% of NAHB’s membership, totaling more than 70,000 people.
  • The average NAHB Associate has been a member for 13 years. The median length is 10 years
  • The median annual gross revenue for an Associate member’s business is $2.84 million, just shy of last year’s $2.86 million

The study also broke down which businesses most Associate members are part of. The most prevalent is subcontracting/specialty trade contractor (41% of Associate members). The next-largest segments include professional specialties (13%), financial services (10%), retail dealerships/distributorships (9%), and wholesale dealerships/distributorship (5%).
