How To Join

The Southwestern Michigan Home Builders Association invites you to join, so you can:

· Improve your business—through the information available in publications that you receive and the exchange of ideas at meetings, seminars and the state and national conventions.

· Profit in group activities—where you learn more about your business by participating in Association activities.

· Increase business contacts—because every contact a businessman makes is a potential asset to himself and his business

· Be better informed—on what is being done in the housing industry, the second largest industry in the united states.

· Further your own industry—”every man owes a part of his time and money to the business or industry in which he is engaged.  No man has the moral right to withhold support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere.” - Theodore Roosevelt

· Support  your industry—standing alone, you are a “voice in the dark,” but by joining other members of the team, you will be amazed at what can be accomplished

· Everyone needs a “Friend in court” - you may think it can’t happen to you—but when you need help, the association may be able to be of assistance.
