Vision 2020: Many Thanks
Can you believe we are coming to the end of another year? This year has been one that has thrown us several curveballs, and all I can say is, thank you! My goal throughout the past year was to be held accountable to our mission and vision and bring things to your attention if you were not aware. As we move forward into a new year, what goals do you have within the Association? Are you plugged in to the channels we are using to keep members up to date, including the Friday Flash, Impact newsletter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and our website? Do you promote the work being done on your behalf by the State and National Associations to keep our industry open? That alone may be a reason for a company you work with to join.

Vision 2020: Government/Regulatory Affairs
This month, I’d like to concentrate on the Government-Regulatory Affairs pillar of our Strategic Plan, which plays a key role in keeping our voices heard among legislators. Locally, our concentration on Government-Regulatory Affairs focuses on attaining three goals: 1) Dedicate HBA resources toward monitoring and reviewing new building codes through our Codes Committee. 2) Reinvigorate our Government Affairs Committee to have 7-10 active members. 3) Engage up to 50% of our members to register for Voter Voice/Builder Link calls to action.
