Vision 2020: Many Thanks

December 2, 2020

Our Mission:
The Home Builders Association of Ft. Wayne, Inc. supports all segments of the residential building industry through advocacy, education, workforce development, networking and community involvement.

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!

Thank you to the Executive Board members, who worked above and beyond this year to navigate uncharted territory. Thank you to the Board of Directors for all your work and pulling together even through virtual meetings, as we were able to accomplish the tasks at hand and adjust to continue to keep things going.

Thank you to Beth for always being willing to look at new ideas and try new things, especially this year. Thank you to Rebecca, who joined us this year and continues to be an asset as we move forward. And, last but not least, thank you to our entire membership! Thank you for trusting the value of this Association, and the impact it has on keeping the residential construction industry at the forefront of maintaining affordable housing in northeast Indiana, and helping it thrive considering this year’s circumstances.

The voice of the Association is stronger together than businesses alone. As I look ahead to 2021, I see our mission continuing to be the focus and leading point of guidance. We will continue working to grow membership, support our student chapters, and have conversations with public officials to keep our industry essential as we carry on with navigating the pandemic. Regardless of your views on the election outcome, we need to work together to build up not only our industry, but also one another during these unprecedented times.

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.

If you need help navigating those conversations, feel free to reach out to me, and I will do all I can to assist.

Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve as your 2020 HBA of Fort Wayne President.

Have a great month, everyone!

Have a great month everyone,
Greg Gerbers
HBA President
