Throughout the month of September, NAHB is celebrating the countless contributions, efforts, and accomplishments of its roughly 70,000 Associate members during Associate Member Appreciation Month.
Associate members make up nearly two-thirds (65%) of NAHB’s members and come from a wide variety of specialties that are vital to the industry, including subcontractors, financial services, retail and wholesale, and sales and marketing.
“Associates are not only vital to our association,” says NAHB Chairman Alicia Huey in her special message to Associate members, “but are in fact the driving force behind a key contributor to our nation’s GDP.”
Associates provide the support, trade skills and materials that every housing professional needs to do everyday business, and in the coming weeks, we'll highlight the strength of their work.
In the meantime, if you're looking for ways to thank an Associate in your network, consider:
- Nominating them for an Associates of Excellence Award to distinguish their contributions. Honors include the Associate Advocate of BUILD-PAC award and Associate of the Year award.
- Submitting them to be featured in the Associates Facebook group by including their name, title, company, accomplishments, reason for nomination and a picture.
- Promoting the importance of hiring Associate members via the Do Business with an NAHB Member graphic.
Also, don't miss out on connecting with like-minded industry professionals for a Shop Talk on Using AI to Improve Your Business. Registration is open for the Tuesday, Sept. 12 event, which begins at 12 p.m. ET.
