7+ Reasons to Become an NAHB Member, Support IBS & the Industry

Building professionals visit NAHB HQ at IBS

The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) produces the highly successful NAHB International National Builders’ Show® (IBS) each year. Our 140,000+ NAHB Members continuously tell us how valuable their NAHB Membership is in helping them navigate the volatile, complex and dynamic building industry.

What is NAHB?

NAHB represents the largest network of residential industry professionals and has served building professionals for the last 80+ years.

Membership Has Its Benefits

NAHB Members enjoy:

  • Discounted Builders’ Show registration rates
