NAHB Introduces Advocacy App for Smartphones and iPad
Just in time for the biggest grassroots lobbying event of the year for the nation's housing professionals, our association has unveiled a new NAHB Advocacy App for iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices. The app brings the ability to participate in key lobbying activities straight to your fingertips, making it super-easy to add your powerful voice to those of your fellow home builders, remodelers and associates as we fight to improve the climate in which our members do business. Not only that, but over the next few months, the app will be expanded and regularly updated to provide real-time news updates, legislative alerts and more. In preparation for your travels to Capitol Hill as part of this week's Legislative Conference, the NAHB Advocacy App offers the following features:
- Calendar of the day’s events
- Talking points on various policy issues
- Directory of congressional contacts
- Map of Capitol Hill
- NAHB Member Legislative Conference guide with staff contacts
- Live Twitter updates and social media sharing
- Legislative Conference feedback form
The NAHB Advocacy App, available as of May 31, can be downloaded free of charge through the Apple App Store and Google Play -- NAHB has even developed a quick tutorial video to show you how. You don't have to be a "techno-geek" to employ this smart resource that adds even greater value to your NAHB membership, so why not put it in your virtual toolbox right now?
