2008 National Membership Day Brings in 6,939 New Members
Nearly 400 local associations phoned in 6,939 member pledges during NAHB’s 2008 National Membership Day on May 20. The drive brought in about 40% fewer new members than last year’s record-setting recruitment effort.
“It is no secret to anybody that these are tough times,” said NAHB Executive Vice President and CEO Jerry Howard. “We are attuned to what the members are going through and want to do all we can to make sure all our locals stay strong and viable.”
The membership day three-hour webcast included live, special guest lectures and pre-recorded videos covering important topics such as grassroots networking, member retention strategies and insights into the 50+ and remodeling markets. Key membership benefits were also highlighted.
