I am grateful to serve you this year. It has been my pleasure to have served on the Board of Directors for 4 years and on the Executive board for 1 year. I have gotten to know many of you at social and other events the NWHBA hosts, and I am looking forward to getting to know more of you. I am amazed at the support that has been shown. In many cases, people have called and asked how they can help out. To me, belonging to and becoming involved in the Home Builders Association shows your dedication. It shows you want to make your industry better.
Each year we publish a Member Directory. I hope that you will use this directory. There are many quality subcontractors and suppliers in this directory. I have used the directory to find new subcontractors and suppliers in my own line of work, as well as finding references for neighbors or subcontractors. I have not been disappointed yet, and value my trust in the members of the Home Builders Association. I hope you will use this directory when you need to look for new subcontractors.
In the coming months you will see a newly redesigned website, one that we are proud of. It will offer valuable information to our customers and give members a place to see what is happening. We have a new staff. Paul Ray is our new Executive Officer. Katie Speirs is now our Administrative Director. They continue to do new things to make our Association stronger and more valuable and are there to help our members.
I hope we are all going to be busy this year, yet I invite you to make an extra effort to be involved with our Association. The more involved you become, the more you will get out of it, and the better we will all be because of it. We have many committees that would welcome your participation. If you would like more information about how you can strengthen our industry, contact a member of our staff. I look forward to seeing you at our events.
