September is Associate Member Appreciation Month, a time for us to recognize the tremendous contributions that our associates make to our local, state and national advocacy efforts, as well as to the overall power and influence of our association. Truth be told, the participation of our associate members is so important to the HBA that Associate Member Appreciation Month should really be celebrated all year round! The HBA Board of Directors wants to personally thank our associate members who are readers of this report for being actively engaged participants in our organization, and for all the assistance they provide on a daily basis to our builder members. The fact of the matter is, we couldn’t do what we do without you. We also strongly encourage all members out there to express your appreciation to an associate member today. Information on the NAHB Associate Members Committee is available on

Also, don’t forget that we’re celebrating our associate members this Thursday, September 24 at Associate Appreciation Night, 5:30 p.m. at the HBA office. To RSVP, call us at 254-0133 or visit our website,
