The Remodeler of Merit Awards (ROMA) honor our remodeler members for quality and value in remodeling projects that range from baths, kitchens and additions to whole-house remodels. Professional remodelers judge their peers on creativity in meeting the unique challenges of remodeling, and in successfully meeting the needs, desires, and budgets of their clients.

As Reggie-winning homes and ROMA winning projects are judged the very best, the Trillium Awards are given to all entered participating Associates in a ROMA winning project or a Reggie-winning home.

In building a strong association, Spikes are priceless. A Spike is a member who works to recruit new members, gets members involved and retains members. Here's how to start: You must earn six credits within two consecutive membership years. You receive one Spike credit for each new member you recruit, and an additional half credit when that new member renews on or before their anniversary date. You must earn two credits per year until you reach 25 credits to become a Life Spike. Each year, BATC recognizes the member who has recruited the most new members as our Spike of the Year.
