NAHB Postpones Dues Increase
Some of the Mississippi representatives at the International Builders Show in Orlando.
During NAHB's International Builders Show (IBS) in January, the Board of Directors voted to defer the planned $16 dues increase for one year. NAHB dues will remain $182 in 2017.
In total, the IBS attendance surpassed 80,000 attendees with 1,500 manufacturers and suppliers. More than 160 education sessions provided information and expert knowledge on various topics within the building industry.
Additionally, speakers Barbara Corcoran of Shark Tank and a performance by Little Big Town added fun to the IBS experience.
We appreciate all of the members who attended IBS and represented Mississippi. We are also thankful to Atmos Energy for sponsoring a
special event for the attendees in their territory.
