Launch of First NAHB Student Chapter
SAHBA is excited to announce that we have established the association's first NAHB Student Chapter. The Chapter further supports our nonprofit trade association's mission to address the business interests, labor/education needs and professional growth of the local home-building industry. Our Education/Designation Committee took the appropriate steps to form an official student chapter in July. SAHBA member Capital Area Career Center is the official faculty adviser for the chapter.
The NAHB Student Chapters program is dedicated to enriching the educational experience of students by offering them first-hand exposure to the "real world" of the building industry. This is accomplished with an NAHB membership, educational programming and networking opportunities. Student members work directly with a faculty adviser while drawing on the mentors and industry leaders in their local home builders association through internships, job shadowing, etc. Student chapters can also compete in national competitions, win scholarships, enjoy discounts on trade shows and enjoy all the benefits of membership in NAHB. Sounds like a "win-win" for everyone involved.
Are you interested in potentially mentoring and/or providing internships to our student chapter members? SAHBA is cultivating a list of members that desire to align with his trade industry education effort. Please contact Lee-Ann with your
details as we develop the new chapter program.
