A Message From Your President
October 2019

Dear Members,

I hope everyone has seen the recent “Badger Builder” magazine. This has an article about the Headwaters Builders Associations, B.O.S.S. program. If not, please pick it up and take a look or see it on page 10. “Way to go” to all of the HBA board in their work and continued efforts in promoting our industry to today’s youth. 

As you know, fall is here. This means a change in weather, fall colors, and a change in the HBA president. That’s right; this will be my last month serving as your president. I will now move down to the position of “past president”, as Joe Cordova, steps up from our board to the president position. Make plans to attend our general member meeting on the 10th, to welcome him in, and swear in all of the new or re- turning board and executive committee members. 

It has truly been an honor to serve as president for the past 4 years. I feel that together, we have accomplished so much over that time. And I’m looking forward to continuing to give all I can to help continue with the growth that we’ve had.

Robin Coffen, President

A Message From Your President
September 2019

Dear Members,

It was great to see so many participants at the recent golf outing. It was a successful event once again this year, raising over $4000 for the scholarship, BOSS, and upcoming grant program. Thank you to all of you who participated, or donated door prizes, or sponsored holes and games. We are already looking ahead to next year’s event, on ways to make it even better. Be sure to read each monthly newsletter for more information about that.

Speaking of our newsletter, this should be your go to source for current news on the HBA. As well as the WBA newsletter. It is important for all of us to be aware of all the WBA is doing for us here at the local level.

Brad Boycks, the Executive Director of WBA and I recently discussed some issues that builders are having with the state DSPS electronic permit and licensing system, which he was able to address personally with the head of the DSPS. This is just one example, and I’m sure with the recent announcement of Senator Sean Duffy retirement, we can count on the WBA putting as much weight behind the Republican candidate running to replace him.

And on the topic of elections, be sure to attend our October General Membership Meeting when we swear in our new officers, and yes, a new president! I will be handing over the position to a well qualified replacement and look forward to starting my role in the past president position. While still working with all committee’s as needed.

Be sure to watch upcoming emails and newsletter for more on this.

Sincerely,

Robin Coffen, President

2019 October Meeting
