NAHB Governance and Leadership

Housing costs concept

NAHB is a Federation of state and local home builder associations. Each association nominates delegates to the Leadership Council, and those delegates are elected by the members at the annual Meeting of the Members. This ensures there is a voice from every affiliated HBA, both large and small. View the Regional Leadership Map to see the NAHB leadership for each region of the country. The Leadership Council provides the policy priorities of the Association to the Board of Directors, which is comprised of directors elected by the Leadership Council.
