Previous column service articles covering “evergreen” housing subjects and seasonal topics — ranging from industry trends and home buying basics to the environment, landscaping and natural disasters — are archived on the Web site, where they are organized by category for easy access.
NAHB Public Affairs also produces annual promotional kits to encourage state and local HBAs to take advantage of media opportunities and outreach efforts related to events such as New Homes Month (April) and National Homeownership Month (June). These kits contain several targeted column service articles, along with press releases, op-eds, radio scripts, advertisements, proclamations and tips on leveraging the national celebrations.
“I've been writing our president's columns for seven years,” said Shelly Stengel, vice president of public affairs for the Home Builders Association of Greater St. Louis. “It's great when I can get useful information from NAHB to use because I usually submit about four columns a month.”
