A Spike can be any member of NAHB who voluntarily recruits others to become either a member of their local home builders association or an at-large member of NAHB. These recruitment and retention efforts of Spikes make the biggest impact in strengthening the NAHB Federation. Plus, Spikes can take advantage of a variety of benefits that come as a result of their efforts.

How to Become a Spike

Members can earn Spike credits which help quantify and recognize their dedication to membership growth. Credits are given when a member successfully recruits new members, as well as each time those members renew their annual membership. Spikes earn:

  • 1 credit for each new builder or associate member they recruit
  • 1 credit on the first anniversary of each new member they recruited
  • ½ of a credit for each anniversary that follows for each of those members
  • ½ of a credit for recruiting council members to their local association

Once a member accrues 6 Spike credits, they officially become a Spike and a member of the Spike Club – a network of Spikes across the nation focused on the growth their associations. As they continue to accumulate credits, their status rises within the Spike Club.

Contact your local association for more information about how to get started.
