A: Spike credits are what you receive when you recruit a new member to your local association or sponsor a retaining member. For each Builder/Associate Member you recruit, you receive 1 Spike Credit and for each Affiliate member you recruit, you receive 1/2 Spike Credit. During NAHB-sanctioned membership drives, you can receive up to double or triple spike credits depending on your local's participation level during the year!
A: The Spike Club is an elite, NAHB-affiliated group composed of the most involved and connected HBA Members throughout the United States.
A: After you receive 6 Spike Credits, you are a member of the Spike Club. Spike Credits are earned through member recruitment and retention. Being a Spike Club Member entitles you to accolades throughout the year for your recruitment efforts, an invitation to the Spike Appreciation Party at the International Builders' Show* and more!
* Eligibility postcards are sent only to eligible Spikes who have at least six credits and one new member
recruitment credit between Nov. 1 of the previous year and Oct. 31 of the current year. For example, if a Spike
who otherwise meets the attendance criteria recruits a new member in December 2015, this will satisfy the new
member recruitment criteria and s/he will be eligible to attend the 2017 Spike Party.
A: A LOT OF THEM!
