Enter 2006 Seniors Housing Awards — Entries Due Sept. 30
The NAHB Seniors Housing Council has announced a call for entries for its 2006 Best of Seniors Housing Awards — the premier design and marketing competition for the 50-plus seniors housing industry. Industry professionals have until Sept. 30 to enter their best community designs, on-the-board plans and advertising and marketing efforts.
Entries are now open for the 2006 Best of Seniors Housing Awards. The entry deadline is Sept. 23.
The awards program honors the best in more than 50 categories covering all aspects of the seniors housing industry. Active adult categories include overall community, clubhouse design, condominium unit design and model home merchandising.
Other design categories include aging in place, assisted living residences, congregate living community, continuing care retirement communities, mixed-use, multifamily housing, renovated seniors housing and special needs housing.
The marketing categories include logo, community brochure, direct mail piece/campaign, Web site, black-and-white and color print advertisement, radio and television commercial, sales center and special promotion.
“The 50-plus market is extremely diverse and demands a different type of product and marketing approach than the mainstream,” said Richard Rosen, a Silver Spring, Md.-based architect and chairman of Best of Seniors Housing Awards Committee. “The Best of Seniors Housing Awards recognize builders and other industry professionals for their innovation and for raising the bar for the industry.”
The deadline for entires is Sept. 30.
Entry forms and contest rules are available online at the NAHB Seniors Housing Council Web site at www.nahb.org/SeniorsHousingAwards. Or call 800-368-5242 x8220 for more information or to have entry forms mailed to you.
Winners will be announced at the Best of Seniors Housing awards ceremony during the 2006 International Builders’ Show in January in Orlando, Fla. They also will be displayed on the Seniors Housing Council’s Web site and in upcoming issues of Seniors’ Housing News magazine.
