 Message from the President


I am honored and privileged to serve as the 2016 President of the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky. After 60 years, our mission is “To promote and enhance the integrity and visibility of the construction industry and the members of the organization through advocacy, communication, education and political action.”  This association is built on the leadership and guidance of those who came before us and continues through the support of the membership.   On behalf of our growing membership, I would like to thank our staff, past Presidents and council and committee members for their hard work keeping this organization strong and growing throughout the recent years.  We are very fortunate to have such dedicated members to strengthen the association.

As President in 2016, my goals are to continue the positive growth made in previous years.  Committee and board service continues to be more enjoyable and beneficial.  I wish to continue to offer constructive networking opportunities through various functions and to encourage business between fellow members.  This year we will have fewer but larger networking events.   Learning from past successes, these are designed to help strengthen the relationships and business partnerships within our association.  The HBA represents everyone involved in the building industry.  As the HBA continues to grow, so will its importance in the community.   This year we will continue to grow our brand awareness.

A vital task of this association is the Builder and consumer advocacy efforts. We will continue the strong efforts of our State & Local Government Committee, Building and Housing Codes Committee, Land Development Council and the Sales & Marketing Council.

As our economy improves; so has the demand for new homes.  This demand can only be met by a well trained workforce.  This association's Enzweiler Building Institute is one of the best trade schools in the country and I look forward to its continued success.  This program has shown incredible growth over the last few years boasting a record setting job placement rating for our students. Our accredited teaching staff and members take great pride in the success of the program and the accomplishments of its students.  

Education for our members and professionals of tomorrow is vital.  We strive to bring our members the most current information on products and trends available.  The goal of our training sessions throughout the year will be to help our members to offer the best products and services in this dynamic industry. 

I plan to work closely with all committees and councils of this remarkable organization to help grow and guide their efforts.   Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
