If you don't have a participating local association, you can still join as an At-Large member. Here is the Membership Application Form Join Today!!
NSHBA is an open forum for builders and related industry professionals to meet and exchange information about business opportunities, trends, issues and problems. Associate members have opportunities to meet with builders in order to build and sustain positive and profitable relationships. Statewide meetings and events provide a forum to meet, network, become educated on industry issues and to nurture relationships and friendships.
Educational seminars and training classes are sponsored by NSHBA and our HBA's to help members learn and take advantage of opportunities in today's changing market.
Additional educational opportunities are offered in conjunction with the Home Builders Institute, the educational arm of NAHB. Members can earn a professional designation of Certified Graduate Associate, Certified Graduate Builder, Certified Graduate Remodeler, or Certified New Home Sales Person. Become certified and set yourself apart from your competition. Click here for various designation programs offered through NAHB.
Our members believe that the industry's long term survival and growth depend on high standards of business ethics and quality workmanship for customers, employees, subcontractors and suppliers.
The logo of your local home builders association, as well as the NSHBA and NAHB logos, will add credibility to your business. As a member, you have access to logos for use on your business cards, brochures, display ads, website, signs and vehicles.
Membership gives you a voice in government on the national, state and local level. NAHB has some of the most effective lobbyists in the nation. In 2015 NAHB's lobbying staff fought for our industry on numerous issues in Congress resulting in a $5.7 Billion savings to our members. In the past year, NAHB's advocacy efforts have saved an average of $6,882 per housing start. We get the results that you, as a member, need.
NSHBA has engaged Great Plains Safety and Health as our partner in training, education and awareness on OSHA Fall Protection and OSHA regulations.

The more member firms and their employees that participate, the better opportunity we have for competitive pricing. We already have several companies who have expressed their desire to participate, and as we go forward, there will be a section on the website and contact information for you to obtain more information on how to take advantage of this important offering. The Board voted to support this program effective immediately. The census will be an important part of this effort and we look forward to working with each of your local associations to bring another benefit to our members.
As an added NAHB benefit, members have access to discounts and savings opportunities offered by many well known companies. Several new programs have been added to the Member Advantage Program. Remember, you must be the current member of record in order to take advantage of these savings.
