Affiliated Companies (for members owning more than 1 company)
If a member has multiple companies with at least 50% of the same ownership and is paying assessments on the full volume of all companies, then each additional company may be added to the membership for an additional $175 annual fee to be recognized by HBADE and NAHB as a member for purposes of discounts, events, and programs. Members who choose NOT to sign up their additional companies, those additional companies will NOT be recognized as member companies and will be charged non-member rates or will not be able to participate in events and programs restricted to members only.
