The Voice weekly e-newsletter features timely news items affecting the housing industry as well as information on upcoming BATC-Housing First Minnesota events.

This four-color, high-quality magazine is provided to members both in hard copy and digitally. Read The Digest quarterly and you’ll see industry leaders and peers and learn their stories. This isn’t one of those magazines that you set aside to read later – The Digest gets pulled out of the stack and read as soon as it arrives.
This extremely popular monthly e-newsletter drills right down to the facts, statistics and the trends. We bring together information from a wide range of credible sources to give it to you straight. Hot Sheet readers gain the tools to create the future of their business.
For our members, this is THE source to find associates with which they want to conduct business. Full-color throughout, the guidebook contains an alphabetical listing of our membership divided into builders, remodelers and associates, plus a classified product and service section. Ask our builder and remodeler members where they keep the directory and they’ll tell you, “It’s on the seat in the truck.” Our builders and remodelers appreciate the vendors who join as associates and they make it a point to do business with them. For associates, this annual membership directory is a great tool to reach out to the builders and remodelers, sharing products and services.
During the legislative session, BATC-Housing First Minnesota is at the state Capitol fighting hard to prevent legislation that hurts our business and passing laws that open doors for builders and remodelers to enjoy success. Our regular legislative update during the session gives you everything you need to follow the contorted path of laws and regulations, and to take action to help the cause through our BATC-Housing First Minnesota Grassroots Action Network.
