GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS
Share ideas and information with fellow builders and associates at IABA's monthly meetings.
Our special programs are designed to educate, inform, inspire and keep you up to date on trends in the housing industry.
Whether you’re a builder or associate, you will find the contacts you make at association functions as well as the services provided to association members to be invaluable to your business.
IABA members are the life blood of the association. The Membership Committee meets throughout the year to ensure we maintain quality services and benefits to our members. They reach out to new members, review benefits, plan membership drives, and discuss retention & recruiting strategies. This team needs two super creative people to share their ideas in the brainstorm!
NETWORKING. This is your team.
As a member of the IABA, you are a part of a large network of industry professionals. You have a golden opportunity at your fingertips to network with your peers and colleagues simply by attending our membership meetings or joining the IABA team.
Member teams & committees are smaller groups of members who work to plan, implement and oversee specific projects within the IABA. Joining a team is the best way to learn about association operations and will give you unique opportunities to develop leadership skills and gain exposure for you and your company.
In order for IABA to remain fresh and exciting, we need a cross section of the membership serve on a team. Think outside of the box... many spouses and friends of the IABA join our teams, as well! Do your part and join a committee today!
Membership gives you the framework to become effectively involved in your industry and community. Whether you are interested in building codes, disaster relief, sales and marketing or community services, your association teams you with others who share similar interests.
Together, working on association committees, members utilize the collective impact and strength of an organized group.
