"A Special Thank You"

"Associates, when given the opportunity to perform on behalf of our industry have been, and will continue to be, amazing."

September Is NAHB Associate Appreciation Month. I  would like to personally thank all the associate members, from across the Federation, for all that you do EVERY MONTH to help your local HBAs, state HBAs and/or NAHB. You truly understand that "if it affects builders it will affect associates" and you are all doing your part to support the building industry by volunteering your time and expertise. I would hope hope that all the local and state HBA presidents take the time to send out a "THANK YOU" to their associate members. The builders are the engine and the associates are the fuel. Together we make a perfect vehicle for industry restoration and eventual growth. 

I would also like to thank our NAHB Associate Leadership Team and give them justified praise. Their efforts have been beyond amazing and I learn from them each and every day. They are the shining examples of "Federation first, their business second" when it comes to their volunteerism each striving to bring NAHB to everyone's local HBAs with information, education and advocacy awareness with grass roots mobilization. 

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” - John Adams said this 235 years ago but he could easily have said it today about these individuals.
