Countrywide New Sponsor of NAHB University of Housing
Countrywide Home Loans, National Builder Division, is the new sponsor of The NAHB University of Housing and will be
sponsoring The National Green Building Conference, The 2005 Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Conference and The 2005 NAHB Design Institute for Builders.
The sponsorship announcement was made during the International Builders Show.
“The generosity of Countrywide will help support The NAHB University of Housing’s countless educational offerings, as well as development of new education products,” said 2004 NAHB President Bobby Rayburn. “The NAHB University of Housing’s mission is to help our members reach higher and work smarter. And Countrywide, with its sponsorship, fully supports that mission.”
Countrywide will be promoting the sponsorship as a means to reach more people within the building industry. “It’s all about knowledge,” said Jack Haynes, executive vice president of Countrywide’s National Builder Division. “That’s why it’s so important to me every time I pick something for Countrywide to be involved in. (I make sure) that it has something to do with giving back to the organization in the form of knowledge and information.”
The sponsorship will help the University of Housing promote further outreach to new members and let them know about the classes, designations and conferences available. It will also give NAHB the opportunity to build on the strong foundation of programs offered by the University of Housing and to develop them further.
Countrywide, a leader in home loan products and services for builders, began its association with NAHB with a commitment to the National Sales and Marketing Council. Countrywide then sponsored Nation’s Building News Online and has since transitioned into the current sponsorship of The NAHB University of Housing.
