Welcome New Members! Building our future…one member at a time.


In March, we held our Annual Lobsterfest at Pub 199 which was hosted by our Membership Committee, co-chaired by Karen Adamsbaum and Robert Nussbaum, Esq. This year our Lobsterfest drew a large crowd of both members and prospective members, who all see value in the association. As you may know, Metropolitan Builders and Contractors of NJ is one of

four local trade associations in NJ dedicated to helping our members build safe, quality and affordable homes in the state. Our goal at Metro is to bring our members together to not only network, but to find value in the services each of you provide. #membersdoingbusinesswithmembers From April through June, Metro will be participating in the NAHB Spring Membership drive. If our membership increases between 3 – 5.99% in this period, all members who recruited ‘New’ members during this time will receive 2 x Spike credits. If we increase our membership by 6% or more, all members who recruited ‘New’ members during this time frame will receive 3 x Spike credits. This is a great incentive for our members to accrue Spikes. So, What are Spike Credits? When you recruit and retain members, you are not only giving back to the industry, you will also be recognized and rewarded through NAHB’s Spike Club. As you continue to recruit and retain additional, you accrue more Spike credits and achieve different levels of recognition for your Spike Status. To become a Spike, you must earn at least 6 credits. The best way to earn credits is to recruit a new member. And what better time to recruit new members than during our membership drive, where you can potentially early Double or Triple credits. You can also earn credits for renewals and recruiting new council members. • 1 credit for each new builder or associate member you recruit • 1 credit on the first anniversary of each new member you recruited • ½ of a credit for each anniversary that follows for each of those members • ½ of a credit for recruiting council members to their local association Once you accrue 6 Spike credits, you officially become a Spike and a member of the Spike Club — a network of Spikes across the nation focused on the growth their associations. As you continue to accumulate credits, your status rises within the Spike Club. Each year, current Spike members who have recruited at least one new builder and/or associate member receive two complimentary tickets to the Closing Spike Concert at the International Builders’ Show (IBS). In addition, Spikes who have recruited at least five new builder and/or associate members receive an invitation to the Spike VIP section at the concert. Within the VIP section, Spikes enjoy complimentary food and drinks for the duration of the show. IBS brings together building industry professionals from around the globe, and the Closing Spike Concert is a great way to celebrate at the end of the week. So put your recruiting cap on, and let’s begin the fun. Start earning your Spike credits today. Michele Leppard, EO
