Spanjer will join Charles Ruma, Jonathan Schoenheider and David Riedman in sharing non-competitive information that has helped carry their respective businesses through the recent economic downturn, as well as insights into practical measures businesses can take now to further prepare themselves for market conditions that may lie ahead in 2012. Discussion will tackle topics such as operations, land purchase, construction, research, design and marketing.
Each of the four builders participating in the Education Program—including Spanjer Homes—is involved in the NAHB’s 20 Clubs, which are comprised of similar builders from non-competing markets. The clubs meet several times a year to share wisdom and to learn ways for each company to improve operations and increase its bottom line.
