Associate Awards Deadline Looming


June 15, 2016

The NAHB Associates awards are a fancy, visible way that our trade partners, product manufacturers and service providers recognize each other as well as builders and remodelers for their outstanding commitment to the housing industry. And because the applications are online, it’s very easy to apply for one.

Associate of the Year is awarded to one Associate member who has made outstanding contributions to their local, state and national HBAs and to the home building industry. Completed applications are due Aug. 31.

Bill Polley Advocate of BUILD-PAC is the Associate who has made diligent efforts to further NAHB’s political action committee. Completed applications are due Aug. 31.

Builders Engaging Associate Members (BEAM) recognizes home builders and remodelers who make an outstanding effort to do business with Associate members. Completed applications are due Aug. 31.

Winners of all three awards are announced at the Associates Awards Program, which will take place in January during the 2017 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando. When IBS registration opens in August, add the awards program to your shopping cart when you purchase your IBS registration.

Even if you are not in the running for an Associate award, you can still play a role in recognizing those nominees and winners by participating in the Premier Partners Sponsorship Program, which helps fund Associates Committee awards and activities. Member companies and a number of local HBAs have already stepped up to the plate.

“Participating as a Premier Sponsor for the NAHB Associates Committee gives me an opportunity to give back to an organization that has given me and my company a place to grow,” said Dianne Beaton, CGA, CAPS of 2DiFore Marketing Solutions.
