A good business person watches where their money goes and ensures they get a good return on what they spend. Deciding to join your professional association is an investment that pays dividends every day of your membership. One of the unique benefits of joining the TVBA is your dues payment also grants membership in the Home Builders Association of Virginia as well as the National Association of Home Builders. Three strong organizations to work smarter for you so you don’t have to work harder!
Let’s talk…we’ve heard all the objections and we have some answers for you…
It’s too much money- Your membership is an investment through your company — not to mention a portion is tax deductible. Your membership dues will more than be recouped when you utilize the many association benefits and services.
I’m too busy — I don’t have the time! Work smarter…not harder. We keep you informed and reduce the time you need to keep up with industry developments through flash bulletins and announcements.
I’m too small — I can’t compete with the big guys- Did you know that 70% of our builder members construct under 25 units a year — just like you?
NAHB doesn’t meet my needs- Check out our resource page and follow the link to NAHB. You will be surprised what a few minutes exploring their site will provide. Allow them to tell you about some of the building association services and benefits that may interest you. We have also loaded a document on the resource page that briefly outlines some of the program and cost saving perks you get as a TVBA member.
Now is not the right time…maybe later- Later may be too late. You really can’t afford to delay in being informed with the fast changes in the industry. Your support now will ensure that we continue to represent all facets of the industry.
I have my own association that represents my specific interests- As a member of the building association you would have more of your interests represented. When the building industry is strong, you realize stronger business and greater profits. Also, as a member, you’ll have an inside track on the latest building news tips, housing starts, where they are and who’s starting them, etc.
Your meetings aren’t convenient for me- We may have our general membership meetings at night but once you join, you’ll learn that there are many other activities which do not occur during the evening hours. PLUS…any employee of your business can attend a meeting in your place.
