Welcome to a New Year with an old way to start..... New Year's resolutions. You know them; every 2nd day of the year (because the 1st day is still a holiday and doesn't count!) you make a list of things you'd like to change or improve upon for the upcoming year. Some make it a full week while some say "wait till next year." Still others have the willpower to achieve the changes they were looking for and, in fact make it a lifestyle change for good.
The determined ones are the most successful ones, wouldn't you agree?
2015 looks like it could finally be the year of sustained building industry recovery for single family home production. As our industry recovers we will also experience, hopefully, a resurgence of our local home builders associations (HBA). This resurgence will only help the state HBAs as well as NAHB. What we all should resolve to do this year, if we aren't already doing so, is to be better members. This isn't to say that you aren't a good member so please, take no offense. I'd like to think I'm a good member but I know there are areas that I can improve. Below are some suggestions for you, the builder & associate member as well as a few for the non member who may be reading this blog.
- Serve as an officer for your HBA.
- Serve as a board member for your HBA
- If you have accomplished the first two items look to be a mentor for the new or younger builder members of your HBA.
