President’s Pen: By Barclay Allen

April 30, 2018

Happy May!

Well friends, new home construction is now going full throttle outside. (I’m sure everyone is nodding their heads in agreement!)

Thank you to ALL who have contributed to our Spring Town & Country New Home & Specialty Retail Tour. It is such a privilege for me to be a part of an association that not only protects its members in legislative issues, but also puts on home shows such as this one. Builders, Developers, Associate Members, Vendors/Suppliers, THANK YOU!!!!

We had a great turnout at the April General Membership Meeting. It was an informative meeting hearing from our prospective candidates for local office: Tim Smith (mayor of Fort Wayne) and Rich Beck (Allen County Commissioner). Hope it gave you all insight to their vision of where they would like to take Fort Wayne / Allen County in the future and how that affects you and your businesses.

Don’t forget about the membership drive that is going on now. New members recruited in the month of May will receive TRIPLE SPIKE points for the sponsor. Deadline to turn in a new member for the contest is May 21st. PLEASE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO HELP GROW OUR ASSOCIATION!


  • May 16th – Networking at 5 will be hosted by Jack Laurie Home Floor Designs. Watch the Monday Morning Blast for more detailed information.
  • June 7th – HBA Summer Golf Outing at Cedar Creek Golf Club. Sponsorship and team information is in the Impact & Monday Morning Blast.
  • August 16th – HBA TinCaps Game: We are still looking for Sponsors. Please contact the HBA Office if you are interested.

Thanks everyone! Keep up the good work!


Best regards,

Barclay Allen
HBA President
