Become a Spike and Grow the HBCA
Recruiting new members to the HBCA of Brevard is an activity recognized and rewarded through the NAHB Spike Club Program. Those who participate are called Spikes and they are among the most valued members of the association.
Member-to-member recruiting and retention efforts are big sources of growth for the HBCA. When Spikes bring new members to the association, they are also bringing new opportunities, stability, and ideas. New members also can become leaders of the HBCA, the FHBA and the NAHB, which is invaluable to our continued relevancy now and for years to come.
It’s why Spikes are so important to our future. Spikes help build the voice, power, and influence of our industry, beginning right here at the HBCA of Brevard.
What are the benefits of becoming a Spike?
When you recruit, involve, and retain members, you grow and strengthen the HBCA and the homebuilding industry. You will be recognized for your contributions to the association and regarded as an accomplished and connected member. In addition, Spikes receive:
A coveted invitation to the biggest party of the year, the Spike Party at the International Builders Show*
Increased visibility, recognition, and networking opportunities
Unique and valuable rewards for each level of achievement
A chance to win prizes exclusively for active Spike members
Awards and recognition from the NAHB
Additional VIP treatment throughout the year
*Invitations are sent only to eligible Spikes who have at least 6 credits and one new member recruitment credit between January 1 and October 31. The recruitment credit may be composed of one full credit received when a new Builder or Associate member is recruited or two ½ credits received when Affiliate or Council members are recruited.
How do I become a Spike?
Before becoming a Spike, you are a Spike candidate. That means you have earned between one and five Spike credits. Once you earn your sixth Spike credit, you become an official NAHB Spike! Spike credits are earned by recruiting and retaining members.
