**Dues payments to the Vermont Builders and Remodelers Association are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. However, dues payments may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expense, subject to exclusion for lobbying activity. Because a portion of your dues is used for lobbying by NAHB and the Vermont Builders and Remodelers Association, 39.0% of the total dues is not deductible for income tax purposes.”

"We have been operating for years with the assumption that we did not have the use for being a part of the program. I can confidently say, in just a few months we have seen benefits that far outweigh the cost. The information, classes, and rebates are fantastic, and well worth the time. With our industry booming, yet the area providing little professional labor, we have had to adjust our game plan to succeed in this market. Education and quality control over hiring in the masses. If we weren't so busy, we would take part in everything the VRBA has to offer. We look forward to more of the social networking aspect of the program as we come out of this crazy Summer."

"I joined VBRA for many reasons. I was impressed with the programs the committees have developed for Workforce Development, Employee Retention, and Growth Programs (particularly with the labor shortage) and Education seminars, among several others.
I am also a new business owner and as the pandemic continued, I missed having an avenue to network and bounce ideas off others in the trade’s profession. What I have found from the members in the Home Builders and Remodelers Association, is a camaraderie that is important in a small state such as Vermont. With how fast paced our environment has become these days, it is rare to find a group of professionals that make the time to hash through some complicated business concepts or may have had similar challenges at some point and provide advice.
Additionally, their legislative work is incredibly important as we need our voice at the state level. If our politicians are not hearing from folks in the field, they will not have an accurate understanding of how to make improvements or adjustments to laws as they pertain to the trades."
