Committees & Councils

All members of the New Hampshire Home Builders Association are invited to indicate their interest in serving on the various committees and councils.

The association relies on the leadership of members to provide expertise and experience on the issues and challenges facing the home building, remodeling, and development industries in New Hampshire.

Being appointed to serve on a committee is one of the most rewarding of volunteer assignments. Not only is the association and industry being served but volunteers find themselves growing professionally and personally through the many high level contacts made and leadership training resources that are available.

Appointment Process:

All appointments are for a term of one year.

Required Meeting Attendance and Communication Policy:

Serving on a committee will require that you attend a majority of the committee or council meetings that are held throughout the year. Participating in committee meetings by Skype or conference call shall be permitted by the chair on a limited basis. Committee members are encouraged to utilize electronic communications (email) to conduct committee business due to the need, at times, to convey multiple pages/documents. Alternatively, fax communications may be utilized.

Commitment:

It is very important to understand the time commitment involved. Serving on an NHHBA Committee or Council is an important responsibility and should be taken very seriously. Your contributions and expertise will be important in advancing the mission of the association on behalf of the home building industry in New Hampshire.

The full description of the association leadership positions, committees, and operating structure is described in the association bylaws.
