A Message From Your President
April 2019

Dear Members,

I wanted to touch base with all the builders in the association. The BOSS committee has been working hard establishing relations with our area schools. We are looking for con- tractors who might want to volunteer hosting a school field trip to their jobsite? With the school year winding down, this would have to done fairly soon, and it will require some pre-planning with the participating school. Does anyone have a jobsite near Eagle River or Three Lakes at this time? You can contact the BOSS committee co-chair Joe Cordova, and let him know you are interested. Joe’s phone number is 715-536-9576, email address: joe.cordova@cordovaagency.com.

We are also putting together a slide presentation to show at the schools and are looking for photos of homes under construction. These can be photos of any phase of construction from the beginning earth work, to pouring foundations, framing and roofing, then of course the finish end as for paneling, doors, trims, and cabinets installed. Be sure to in- clude pictures that show your employees performing the tasks. You could also include photos of other trades, plumbing, electrical, hvac, painting, drywall, and flooring if you have them.

Thank you in advance for your efforts to help the association with its goal of connecting youth to our trades and industry.

We are excited to have our upcoming Business After Hours event next week, and more excited that we can offer another one this year, in June. Please see information on both events, elsewhere in this newsletter.

Also if you have not nominated someone for Builder of the Year, Associate Member of the Year or Volunteer of the Year, please complete the form on the following page and return right away. It’s important to recognize members that help keep our organization strong.

Sincerely,

Robin Coffen, President

A Message From Your President
March 2019

Dear Members,

It was great seeing all of you at the recent breakfast meeting last month. If any of you are interested in learning more about what Inspire Wisconsin/Grow North is doing here at the local level, please let me know. I will make the connection for you with Brittany Beyer, or even the Department of Workforce Development. It really leads into what and why we are continuing to work with our schools. The HBA is working hard to educate the youth of the Northwood’s about the many opportunities for employment there are, here for them, after high school.

I’m excited to see all of the participation from our area schools with our scholarships this year. It looks like we already have five schools with students who are interested. Plus we’ve also been busy with our B.O.S.S. program. This past month we were able to visit the Three Lakes High School Career Day, as well as being at the Wabeno High School when materials were donated by Pukall Lumber, for a shed construction project for their building trade’s class. You can read more about this elsewhere in this newsletter. If you would like to help out with this committee, or maybe have a child interested in learning about BOSS, please contact Joe Cordova or myself.

I encourage all of you to fill out the nomination form in the newsletter and vote for the Builder, Associate, or Volunteer of the Year. And for sure make plans to attend the award meeting coming up in May.

Sincerely,

Robin Coffen, President
