Start by watching this video to hear from several of CBUSA’s Builder Members who have started new chapters where they build homes.
To understand how much you can save when you put the CBUSA programs to work for YOU, we created an online Savings Calculator.
Clicking that link will take you to a Google Spreadsheet. Click the “make a copy” button. Directions are in the colored boxes to the right of the calculator. Go see what you can save, then keep reading. (Seriously – click now and see what you can save!)
CBUSA Is an Investment in Your Business
Now that you have reviewed the potential savings from our calculator, it’s time to understand how CBUSA is a business investment. You should know that your Membership will require some dedication from you and your staff to get our programs working with your business.
Valuable Chapter Meetings
Our chapters meet regularly allowing members to share best practices with their peers, discuss programs, offer one another leads and references, plus ideate around market issues.
CBUSA will work with your Chapter to make this a valuable time together, attendance and ongoing participation is expected at these meetings. While ideally in person, we’ve been meeting virtually due to COVID-19 and continue to see the power of these relationships help our members’ navigate uncertain times.
CBUSA is here to support you with savings and rebates, but we need your participation to do so. Your input to help us understand your projected home starts, necessary materials for the bid list and sometimes information about how and what you prefer to buy are all critical. The more you are able to help us understand your needs, the better we can negotiate on your behalf.
CBUSA does need you to report for both your local purchases and for the brands you buy from our National Contracts Programs. This does take time, but we are continually working to make this process easier through our Member Portal. Today we have several manufacturers and local suppliers that will actually report for you! CBUSA will collect your rebates and distribute them directly into your provided bank account.
All you have to do is:
1. Enroll in a program
2. Buy the material for your homes
3. Report which materials and the quantity purchased
CBUSA’s Experienced Staff
By joining a Chapter and becoming a CBUSA Member, you have access to our experienced CBUSA staff. Your CBUSA Chapter’s Network Representatives will be dedicated resources who help make sure each chapter member gets their group buying projections and reports in on time. We also help you understand what programs are best for your businesses, schedule software training and provide ongoing customer service when you need help along the way with new programs or on ramping a new company resource to help manage your CBUSA program.
We are always looking to help launch the next CBUSA Network Chapter of elite residential home builders.
Let us know if you’re interested in joining one of the five chapters getting ready to kick-off!
1. Birmingham/Tuscaloosa, AL
2. Huntsville, AL
3. Waco, TX
4. Charlotte, NC
5. Chicago, IL
Just because your building market isn’t on our current map or this list, doesn’t mean we haven’t started speaking with someone in your area also interested in launching a chapter.
