"And the 2010 Winners Are......"

The 2010 Associate Awards were presented at The Peabody Hotel in Orlando, Florida, on January 13th, 2011, during the just recently completed International Builders Show. 

This year's group of honorees has demonstrated, during this Great Recession, that actively engaged associates will keep on providing the deeply needed dedication that helps to keep our Federation of local and state HBAs at their best. Within NAHB these individuals were, and are, recognized for their accomplishments because they realize that "if 'it' affects builders 'it' will affect associates."

The three awards/inductions are;
1. Associate of the Year
(Presented to the most outstanding associate member for his/her dedication and proactive leadership at the local, state and, with heavy emphasis, the national level. The voting is based on a points system with past winners and builders as the judges.)

2. Bill Polley BUILD-PAC Award
(The associate member who's dedication in political fund raising efforts and helping to expand the importance of political action. The award was named after Bill Polley. Bill passed away several years ago but his political activism lives on.)

3. Induction into the Society of Honored Associates
(Finalists for Associate of the Year)

And the 2010 winners are.......

The NAHB members, from around The Federation, congratulate you. Bravo!

I encourage associates from all over the country to make sure your state HBA submits names to NAHB staff member Betty Thweatt (bthweatt@nahb.org). Betty will send to you the forms needed for submission. It is a great way to make sure the country knows who you are proud of back home.
