The Sales & Marketing Council was designed to raise the level of professionalism in the sales and marketing of new homes. The SMC offers Certified New Homes Sales Professional (CSP) courses, Institute of Residential Marketing certification courses, and continuing education credits toward real estate license renewal. The annual membership fee of $75 (in addition to your basic HBA dues) includes membership in the National SMC and a subscription to the National Sales Marketing Council IDEAS magazine.

Continuing Education


I recouped my annual dues in a little over two months with the HBA’s group credit card discount processing alone! And, I’m looking to save upwards of $2,000 in SAIF discounts as well. I can’t afford not to be an HBA member!
