HBA members have been receiving emails from NAHB in recent weeks titled “Builders for” followed by the name of a candidate for President of the United States.  The most recent email was from NAHB member Ron Jones on behalf of Builders for Obama.  Another this year came from Builders for Romney.

First, a little bit about membership in your Home Builders Association, just in case you are unsure.  As a member of the Home Builders Association of Greenville, you also become a member of the National Association of Home Builders and the Home Builders Association of South Carolina.  A portion of your dues are paid to the national and state organizations, which focus primarily on national and state government matters.

NAHB does not endorse nor otherwise support candidates for President of the United States.  It does support candidates for Congress through the national BuildPAC political action committee.

However, to insure that members are educated about candidates for the Office of President of the United States, NAHB initiated a program that allows “Builders for” groups, made up of HBA members, to send an email to HBA members around the country about their favorite candidate.  These emails are infrequent and informational.  NAHB has not sold your email address to any third party, including any political campaigns.  The “Builders for” emails are being sent by NAHB on behalf of HBA members who support a candidate for President.

You have the option of opting out of the “Builders for” emails without opting out of other e-communications from NAHB.
