Become A Spike

Recruiting new members to the North Idaho Building Contractors Association is an activity recognized and rewarded through the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Spike Club program. Those who participate are called Spikes, and they are among the most active members of the association.

Why Become A Member?

Member-to-member recruitment and retention efforts are the largest source of growth. Spikes bring grassroots growth and stability. These efforts lend to the development of the general membership and our leadership pipeline, keeping the face of the association true to that of our industry and the scope of interests we represent.

Spikes are the membership leaders of our association building the voice, power and influence on every level, in every state.

Benefits of becoming a spike

The real benefits are intangible: You are recognized for your contributions to the association and regarded as an accomplished and connected member.

Additionally, Spikes receive:

  • A coveted invitation to the biggest party of the year, the Spike Party at the International Builders’ Show.
  • Increased visibility, recognition and networking opportunities at industry events
  • Unique and valuable lapel pins for each level of achievement
  • Additional VIP treatment throughout the year

How do I become a spike?

Before becoming a Spike, you are a Spike candidate. That means you have earned between one and five credits. Once you earn your sixth credit, you become an official NAHB Spike!

* Spike credits are earned by recruiting and retaining NIBCA members.

To retain your status as a Spike you must earn a minimum of one new Spike credit (new or retention) each year until you reach a total of 25 credits, at which point you are elevated to Life Spike status.

* Providing you have earned those six credits within two consecutive membership years. 

    How do I earn spike credits?

    Members earn one credit for each new member they sponsor. When that member renews after his or her first year of membership, the sponsoring member automatically gets one renewal credit. Every year the member renews thereafter, the sponsoring member will receive a ½ renewal credit.
