NAHB Hosts Membership Drive Training for Florida

Over 50 FHBA Members and Local HBA staff participated in the NAHB Florida Membership Drive Training. The Greater Orlando Builders Association and Gold Coast Builders Association graciously hosted training sites, where NAHB’s Donna Oliver and Dave Ashley jointly moderated the sessions. Topics covered from how to overcome the top ten objections for joining the association to organizing volunteer recruitment drive teams.
