A Message From Your President
April 2018

Dear Members,

I am pleased to announce our membership continues to grow. The board recently approved two new members. Welcome all to the association! You’ll see information in this letter about our upcoming membership drive also, as well as reminder this is your last chance to get your votes in for associate of the year, builder of the year, and volunteer of the year. The Recognition Committee will be selecting those winners soon. We will be having our 2018 Business After Hours meeting at Builders FirstSource. I personally wish to thank Rob, Mike, and the staff in advance for hosting it this month. And I look forward to seeing all of you there. I also would like to mention the Virtual Meeting Day for the WBA will be April 11, 2018. Please mark your calendar to sit in on this from your office. This will give ALL of you the opportunity to experience what takes place at a state meeting without having to travel there. You can see how the WBA works in advocacy, marketing, and so on. I encourage everyone to participate. Lastly, remember to contact Samantha Long at WBA to re-register your log-in to the new WBA website. This may seem like a hassle, but she’ll take care of you quickly. It will truly only take a few minutes. One more way the HBA and WBA are working to secure the privacy of its members and offering more content as well.

See you all at the meeting next Tues. April 10th. Support a member by attending!

Sincerely,

Robin Coffen, President

A Message From Your President
March 2018

Dear Members,

Thank you to all who attended our breakfast meeting last month. And a special thank you to Carl Jennrich and Pete Wegner from Oneida County Zoning for their presentation on Oneida counties new Shoreland Zoning Ordinance. They have been working with several committees over the past year and a half to get this developed and adopted.

A reminder to all builders, most of you all know. Weight restrictions will be started soon. Get those jobsites off highways staged with materials to keep you going for the next 4-6 weeks. I know we’re all glad to see the snow melting, and more daylight. But this is one of the nuances that come with spring; we all have to deal with.

I also want to remind all of you to complete and mail in your ballots for Builder of the Year, Associate of the Year, and Volunteer of the Year which can be found in this newsletter. Our recognition committee will be reviewing these nomination in April. Also, a big thank you to Builders FirstSource for hosting the “Business after Hours” on April 10th. See everyone there!

Lastly, if anyone is interested in talking with me about some ideas to update their business website, I’d be happy to share some information I took in while attending the B-4 conference last month.

Sincerely,

Robin Coffen, President
