The National Association of Home Builders recognized BIAW with a 2022 Grand Award for highest retention rate. The award specifically honors BIAW for achieving the highest retention rate among state homebuilding associations with 4,000 to 7,999 members. States in this group include Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

Highest retention rate reflects hard work, value

“This award reflects the hard work our members and staff put into recruiting new members and helping them feel welcome, appreciated and engaged,” said Raelle Vitali, BIAW Membership Resource Manager. “This encourages them to renew year after year.

“Our high retention rate also signals that members appreciate the tremendous value they receive from their membership,” she said. “This includes access to top-notch governmental affairs and legal resources, health insurance, our ROII retro safety program, workforce, education and more.”

NAHB’s Grand Awards honor local and state HBAs for demonstrating exceptional achievement in membership growth and retention.
