The SPIKE Club
Once you have become a member you can become a recruiter and take advantage of the benefits of the SPIKE program.
Recruiting new members to your local association 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 recruitment and retention efforts are highly valued because of the grassroots growth and stability they bring to the association. These efforts lend to the development of the general membership and our leadership pipeline, keeping the face of our association true to that of our industry and the wide scope of interests we represent.
Spikes are the membership leaders of our federation, building the voice, power, and influence on every level, in every state!
Spike Club Q & A
What are the benefits of becoming a Spike?
The real benefits are intangible — you will be recognized for your contributions to the association and regarded as an accomplished and connected member. Additionally, Spikes receive:
— A coveted invitation to the biggest party of the year, the Spike Party/Directors Reception*
— Increased visibility, recognition, and networking opportunities at industry events
— Unique and valuable rewards for each level of achievement, including lapel pins, plaques, trophies, wearables, jewelry, and more
— 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 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 NAHB and Council members.
