Trap ShooT 2014

builders buZZ BY Nick GreeN Green's Plumbing and Heating President, LRBA

Everyone should read the article on” Association Maximization”. We need to grow our membership and there are some good ideas in the article, with a letter to send out to prospective members. Be sure and work with fellow members that support our Association. If you work with someone that is not a member, ask them to join, tell them why you are a member. Work safe and enjoy the warm weather.

Congratulations to the winners! The food was great, as well as, the cooks! Sharon and Brenda did most of the cooking with some items shared from the members.

V iew MY Brenda Eidenschink Hello! Well June has finally arrived and hopefully the sun will come out and warm everyone up. We had our trap shoot and annual picnic a few weeks ago. Not as many people were able to come as I would have liked, so I think next year we will try something different and have our picnic on a separate evening. Hopefully with much warmer weather. The trap shoot was a great success as we had 8 different teams shooting. It was fun to watch. We have a full line up for meetings starting in September. The first one I am working on is going to be a fun night. I am planning on it being at BJ’s Barbecue and golfing might be in the agenda! We will have a speaker come from BAM and speak shortly and then we will start some games and compete for prizes. Sharon will be detailing the meeting schedule for you, so please save the dates. If you are a plumber or you know of one that needs more continuing education credits, we will be holding a plumbing continuing education class yet this fall. I will be sending out the date as soon as I have all of the details worked out with an instructor. So hang tight. If you can, please call us at the office to get signed up. We will need a minimum amount of people to have the class. So please pass the word around to fellow plumbers. Our summer hours at the office will be Tues – Thursday from 9 am – 12pm., until Labor Day. If you do need to reach us and it’s after hours, just call my home number 847-1946. I hope you all have a busy summer with lots of work, but do try to enjoy some of it also. Have a great summer! Brenda Eidenschink

Letter from the editor Happy Days, summer is here! We have all of our meetings scheduled for the coming year, so be sure and fill in the dates on your calendars. The Trap Shoot was a fun morning and next year we will be back trying our picnic on a separate evening. I think that encourage better attendance. There are no meetings for the summer but if you need anything… information etc… call us. We are still working on things to start out the fall. We will be changing SHARON the website to be more updated with more information. Is WESTERHOLM everyone using the NAHB and BAM websites? If you need information on accessing the member portion, let us know and we will help you get started. There are a lot of legal forms and information on the BAM site and updates from NAHB. Enjoy the nice weather! Sharon

aSSoCIaTIon MaxIMIzaTIon Associates: A Message That Could Help Our Association Last week's blog article discussed builder members of our Association and how they should convince their respective vendors to become members of the Association. For builders, it is an easier ask because they have leverage; "I'm building, you want to sell to me but only if you are a member." Builders should not feel bad about leveraging their position. These vendors need to invest in the industry that supports them, through builder business. The staff at your local HBA will help these new members understand their new investment and help them realize the return on their investment that will incentivize them to make the investment year after year. One of the trickier asks in membership recruitment is for an associate to recruit builders who are not members because associates have next to zero clout. However, if the associate is well respected by their current customers, there is a trust factor that should provide a greater chance with builder recruitment. Below is a letter that could be utilized to help active associates recruit a good portion of their customers. With over 90,000 associates, NAHB has one helluva a sales force. At the local level, I would guess that 20% of your associates could be fantastic recruiters IF the local membership team provided talking points. If the associate is successful, and recruits builders for his or her local, you just expanded the opportunity to engage the new builder members' non- member vendors. Hopefully the below letter from an associate could provide food for thought or be used word for word (I created it, you have my permission). Each new member is like a drop of water. Little by little the pond turns into a lake..... Dear Builder; We have a great business relationship and I value your trust in me to provide (insert product) for your building projects. I know that you take an enormous amount

of risks in this ever changing building industry as I’m sure legislation and regulation has changed your strategic plan more than a few times. One of the most valuable resources I have to keep track of your challenges as a builder is the Builders and Remodelers Association of Northern New Jersey (BRANNJ). BRANNJ is on the frontlines of our industry’s protection and growth, covering the builders’ concerns to the best of their ability. Being a member of BRANNJ gives me a 3 in 1 membership. Our industry’s state association and national association, the New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) are powerful groups that provide advocacy in Trenton and in Washington, DC on behalf of all of us who earn a living in the building industry. I have learned so much by being a member through the many educational programs, monthly publications and business connections I developed through my membership. I also know that the Builders Association gives my customers, such as yourself, the opportunity to build fine homes in New Jersey which provides me with more opportunities to continue my work with you. All members have a number of opportunities to save money on products and services they need today, but Builder members exclusively, have the opportunity to save money on products you are already purchasing through the HBA Rebate Program. Besides the Rebate Program, the NJBA’s benefits include affordable health plans for groups of every size (even single life groups), discounts on Builders Liability Insurance and much more. NAHB’s member benefits include discounts on automobile purchases, computers, office supplies, shipping, car rental and so much more. In addition to these money saving programs and, perhaps more importantly, “free for members only” expert advice on legal issues, codes questions and many other related issues to help you survive in our turbulent industry. This invaluable advice can save you thousands in retainer fees and “by the hour” consultation. Why am I writing this letter to you? I’ve realized that you are not a member of BRANNJ and I believe I wouldn’t be performing my job as a trusted trade partner with you if I didn’t at least make you aware of BRANNJ. I don’t make money for bringing you in as a member, however, the more builder voices we have as a united industry the better my chances of a successful career as a supplier/service provider. I invite you to come with me to BRANNJ’s next general membership meeting, as a guest of BRANNJ, to meet some of your builder peers. Through conversations with your peers you will realize what I explained above was understated! The next two meeting dates are mm/dd and start at 6:00 pm, end about 8:00 pm. I will sign you up for either one and personally pick you up! Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and I hope you know how much I value your business and I look forward to enhancing our relationship through shared Association affiliation. Regards, Associates, a few notes to consider for your own letter: • The local invite for a general membership has to be approved by your president. If your local does not have this program, you may have to pay for the general membership. If you do, look at it as an investment in your relationship with the builder. • Insert your own state features, explaining the benefits, in lieu of my state, NJBA. You may want to add your local's feature as well. • Remember, you have a personal relationship with your customers. To what degree only you know but deliver the message without sounding too much like a sales pitch. Each message is tweaked to fit the recipient's personality.

builders perFormAnCe guidelines Are reQuired in minnesotA

Minnesota builders must by law include a set of performance guidelines with their current contract for customers. Guidelines are available to LRBA members through the Builders Association of Minnesota.
