The Association Runs 15 Awards Programs
At that beginning of July, NAHB announced that they are open for applications for their awards for 2020. The association has 15 awards programs, covering a broad range of individuals and organizations within the industry. In the announcement, they advertised the program by encouraging their audience by promoting the idea that, "NAHB has many opportunities for builders, remodelers and other housing industry professionals to highlight their excellent work and accomplishments throughout the year through prestigious awards. "
By communicating with Kimberly Bailey, vice president of customized member services for NAHB, she was able to outline the program and how it worked. "We currently have 15 awards programs in specialty areas of the industry that bring around 2,000 applications each year. Each of the 15 awards programs has a committee of NAHB members and industry experts that review and judge the applications based on the criteria set for each category." She continued by estimating that the association has been running an awards program for over 50 years.
