Spike Club: Growing our Strength through Member Recruitment, Retention and Involvement
How do I earn a Spike Credit?

One half Spike credit: for being an Ambassador or attending / leading a monthly New Member Connect, or selling raffle tickets.

One Spike credit: personally visiting and orienting a new member who did not attend a scheduled orientation.

One Spike credit: making three renewal phone calls, regardless of the outcome.

One Spike credit: sponsoring a new member.

One Spike credit: securing the renewal of a member who has canceled or whose membership has lapsed.

One Spike credit: automatically given by NAHB for first year renewals. If the sponsor is no longer a member, it is up to the discretion of the Director of Communications and Member Services to distribute those credits.

What are the benefits of becoming a Spike?

– Increased visibility, recognition and networking opportunities at networking events
– Unique lapel pins for each level of achievement
– Additional VIP opportunities throughout the year

Spike Credits are awarded by NAHB based on the credits you have earned locally and are recognized in the following sequence:

  1. When an individual earns his/her first credit, he/she becomes a Spike Candidate and remains at that status until he/she has earned up to six (6) credits.
  2. To become a Spike, an individual must earn six credits within two consecutive membership years. If Spike status is not achieved by the third consecutive year, credits from the first year in the sequence are lost.
  3. To retain Spike status, a minimum of two credits must be earned each year until a total of 25 credits are received and Life Spike status is attained. If these credit requirements for reaching Life Spike are not met in any one-membership year, all prior years’ Spike credits will be canceled. To rejoin the Spike Club, a member must re-qualify as a 6 credit Spike.

The intent of the Spike Club program is to boost membership through awards, recognition, camaraderie, and overall fun.
