September Is Associate Member Appreciation Month
September is Associate Member Appreciation Month and an opportunity for local and state association staffs and builder members to recognize the myriad contributions that associate members make.
September is the month to brag about our associate members and all that they do for our association and our businesses.
Here are just some of the contributions they make:
- They bring revenue to the association with their dues and sponsorship. They give this association the financial grounding it needs to do its work.
- They devote time to the association through their work on committees, councils and special projects. You can always count on associates to be there and pitch in to help.
Associates Honored Through the Years
Each year, associate members who distinguish themselves through outstanding service to NAHB, the industry and their communities are recognized as the NAHB Associate of the Year, a member of the NAHB Society of Honored Associates or the recipient of the Bill Polley Build-Pac Award. Members have been honored for these awards since 1983 during the International Builders' Show.
2006 NAHB Associate of the Year Applications Due Nov. 6
