Julie Mancl, executive officer of the Central Wisconsin Home Builders Association in Wisconsin Rapids, WI, has been running Tech Talk articles in The Blueprint, her monthly newsletter for members. Written by technology consultant Bill Allen, the Tech Talk series is published by NAHB’s Business Management Department as part its Building Business Briefs (BBB) series for home builders and remodelers.
These business management articles appear monthly in the EO mailing and periodically in Business of Building e/Source, an electronic newsletter for NAHB members. They are also reprinted in Nation's Building News Online. Mancl likes the fact that the articles are posted online, too. “Having them at your fingertips is awesome,” she says. “They make us look good.”
Building Business Briefs are organized in eight categories within a special, members-only section of NAHB’s Web site called Business Management Tools:
The articles are designated with the NAHB logo and the words “Web Page,” and are easy to insert in newsletters, magazines and other member publications. “They are extremely useful and are well received by our membership,” says Arlene Kerner, executive vice president of the York County Builders Association in York, PA.
Be sure to check out the HBA Resources section of NAHB’s Web site, which contains a variety of communication tools. You’ll find HBA alerts, ready-to-use articles and other resources to help you get the word out to your members.
