Membership Points System

HBA of Greater Springfield Membership Participation Points are calculated over a three-year period. Points are used to determine the Home & Outdoor Living Show registration order for the following three-year period after points have been calculated.

Every 3 years, points return to zero, and a new accrual period begins. In the past, accrual periods have been determined by Home Show dates. The current period began after Home Show 2023 and ends on December 31, 2025.

Moving forward, periods will consist of three calendar years. The next point accrual period will begin on January 1, 2026. HBA may also use points in special circumstances as needed and reserves the right to update the point system as needed.

  • Home & Outdoor Living Show (Home Show)
  • Tools of the Trade
