Message from the President
As the 2013 President of The Homebuilder’s Association of Northern Kentucky, I am looking forward to building on the positive momentum of the housing industry to promote the integrity and visibility of our members through advocacy, communication, education and political action.
Through the hard work of staff and our volunteer members, the HBA will continue to find innovative ways to provide relevant programs and services to help members grow and prosper. We will strive to continuously improve public awareness of the fact that HBA members provide the highest quality work, to the highest standards, with the best trained and most knowledgeable workforce in the industry. Remember to always look for the HBA logo first as it means something special!
The HBA will continue to vigorously advocate on the members’ behalf at the state, local and national levels to stop unneeded regulations that infringe on our rights or serve only to increase the cost of construction. At the same time, advocating for laws and regulations that protect the consumer, improve efficiency and are in line with the core principles of the organization.
Through the HBA apprentice and trades program, we are excited about the opportunity to increase the number of highly qualified and skilled employees into the workforce. This is a growing area of our organization, and as President I will support and foster the growth of these programs, not only for the benefit of the HBA, but for the long term health and well being of the industry and our community as a whole.
The market forces that have been at play for the last several years have made us all re-prioritize what is most important to our customers, in our businesses and places of employment, and in our own personal lives. As we emerge from a cycle that only the strong could survive, the current membership of the HBA should be proud to proclaim that we are open for business and better than ever! I see the future of the industry looking brighter every day and I am truly honored to serve as the 2013 HBA President.
