Sources with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) tell MHProNews that they have about the same number of manufactured housing industry members as the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) does.
All told, the NFIB has some 325,000 member companies. That’s about 1,000 times the size of MHI.
A now retired manufactured housing industry state association executive told the Daily Business News (DBN) on MHProNews that he “partnered” with NFIB successfully on several issues in his market.
As the industry’s professionals seek association-level national leadership voices that could provide a sound alternative to MHI, it’s good to get a feel for how large and impactful the NFIB is, what their position is on an issue such as tax and regulatory reform, and how professional they are compared to MHI.
The DBN has reported on NFIB for several years across a spectrum of issues.
The bottom lines are that they are pro-small business, promote less federal regulation, work for lower rates and a simpler tax code, and support many other issues that will often appeal to the small-to-mid sized manufactured housing operation.
