Grant County Chapter Membership Application
When you join the Spokane Home Builders Association (SHBA), you also become a member of the Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Portions of your dues are automatically forwarded to each of them.
In applying, I agree to abide by the constitution, by-laws and code of ethics. All applications are subject to approval by the SHBA Board of Directors. In the event of termination of membership in the Association, I agree to immediately discontinue the use of its logo(s) in any form.
Per the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993, any portion of association dues attributable to that association’s (and its affiliated associations’) lobbying activities are not deductible as a necessary and ordinary cost of doing business. Accordingly, the following portions of your dues payment are not considered deductible: $169.67 of the Spokane Home Builders Association dues amount you are paying, plus $25.20 of the amount we pay on your behalf to the Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW) and $39.60 of the amount we pay on your behalf to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). In addition, if you elect to make the voluntary PAC (Political Action Committee) contribution, it is not deductible.
