Hope you are all enjoying your summer with your families and friends! Summer is just flying by, hard to believe kids will be heading back to school soon. It seems that the consensus on the street is business has been strong this year and many are having trouble keeping up. It’s great to see the rebound in our industry and new construction popping up all over once again.
Unfortunately, as we all pick up with work oftentimes our membership suffers due to lack of time to promote to new prospects. We want to remain a leader in the state for HBA’s and that is why we are focusing the month of August on our 2nd and final membership drive of the year. We are a force in numbers and that is why I am asking you to consider recruiting a builder or a new associate this month. I can’t think of a better time to join our organization, many new members are looking to grow their companies and are looking for new contacts.
Let’s all try to think of one or two industry contacts that might benefit from our group. I have a few in mind and hope you do to. To incentivize the drive this year, all new recruits will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a trip to LAS VEGAS for the International Builder Show, including hotel and airfare.
Lastly, we lowered our affiliate dues to just $100 in an effort to get more involvement from many of your companies. Have a superintendent, purchasing manager, or a sales associate? Consider signing them up as a way to engage them with the group to prospect new business or to stay current with industry news and educational seminars.
I would like to thank our sponsor Guaranteed Rate and all those who attended Facebook 102 on July 29th. I heard the speaker was fantastic and gave many useful tips for marketing on Facebook.
You will not want to miss our next General Membership Meeting on Thursday, September 17th featuring Motivational Speaker Randy Fox who will be talking about the topic Soul on Fire. Come hear Randy inspire us with some humor and motivational dialogue!
I hope to see you all on August 19th at the Autobahn race track. There is still room to sign up for the event as a team or individual. Good luck to all!
Hope to see you all soon,
