WHY SHOULD I RENEW MY MEMBERSHIP?
It depends on whether you consider your dues an expense or an investment.
The ordinary course of operating a construction business requires the expenditure of many resources, probably none more important than money. When contemplating the use of precious capital, the contractor must evaluate the potential financial resources. Crucial business decisions involving cash outlays are routinely made that effect short and long-term goals and are usually classified as expenses or investments.
Because of its effectiveness as an advocate for housing, the leadership of the Builders Association considers membership dues an investment – not an expense. Such an investment no doubt has sustained our industry through the perilous times in the latter part of the last century and stands now to meet and to conquer the economic challenges we face today.
Members like you, through investments of time and money (dues), have had, and will continue to have, a very definite positive influence on housing and related issues. Your investment in housing through your local builders association, like any other good investment, will continue to pay tremendous dividends if done with consistency and fortitude.
There are many aspects to membership that make it invaluable. For some members, it may be the opportunities to network with other members or to market their product or service to the public, or perhaps it’s to learn from those who have been in business longer. For others, it may be to support the governmental efforts of the association in the struggle against unwarranted regulations and fees or perhaps to benefit from the insurance programs offered through this association.
Regardless of why you joined, your membership in your local association is actually an investment in your own business; for it enables the association to be even more effective in preserving housing – which is sure to benefit us all in the industry.
