What is the SPIKE Club?

Your membership is one of the most valuable resources for building your association. Just as a nail in the home building industry is essential to the development and strength of a building, volunteers who recruit and retain members play a vital role in the growth, development, and stability of an association - they are our “Membership Champions.” Back in 1953, to recognize and reward dedicated members who worked to recruit, involve and retain members, the NAHB Spike Club was created. Over the years, the number of Spike Club members has grown to more than 16,600 — including Builder, Associate, Affiliate, and Peer members. The NAHB Spike Club is a tool to encourage your members’ involvement in membership development. The NAHB Spike Club is composed of all the individual members and employees of members in local associations who have attained Spike status. It is a vehicle to recognize these members for their outstanding achievements in member recruitment and retention in their local home builders association. For more information about SPIKE Credits and the Club, please click here.
