NAHB members across the nation have been diligently recruiting numerous new members into the Federation this fall.
Their efforts are part of the continued mission to grow a robust organization, but this time, the most effective recruiters will earn an all-inclusive three-night trip to New York City, too.
Hosted by LG and Signature Kitchen Suite, the top nine members across the three HBA size categories will win the top prize. Winners will include the top two Builder members and, for the first time, the top Associate members in each category.
Last year, the top recruiters earned an all-inclusive trip to Napa, Calif., experiencing one of the world’s premier wine destinations. One of the winners, David Price, spoke highly of the trip, not only because of the great food and wine, but also because of the connections he made. The other 2022 winners continue to stay in touch regularly, and share business tips, news and insights.
“The trip was great,” said Price, president of the HBA of Raleigh-Wake County and owner of David Price Construction LLC. “LG does a great job wining and dining you, and their appliances are really great.”
The 2023 competition began Sept. 1 and will run through Nov. 30.
