What a privilege it is to serve as the 63rd President of DRHBA. I am honoured to follow in the footsteps of those before me who have helped make the Association what it is today. A trusted compilation of not only home builders but contractors, suppliers and professionals that work together with a common goal, to better the industry in every possible way.
Led by our newly elected Board of Directors and our dedicated staff we will continue to pursue the issues that matter most to our membership as well as the consumer. Working together as a team we will embark on new initiatives as well as the ongoing pursuit of existing ones. Our ever present mandate to stay in touch with not only local but provincial and federal politicians as well as regulatory committees to ensure that we are being heard remains a priority. Over regulation will always be an issue that must be monitored or it will steam roll its way through our industry. Teaming up with the OHBA and the CHBA enables a well-rounded group to effectively focus on the many tasks at hand. Our membership is the key to our success. Participation in the many events we host every year is vital to the success of your company and this association. The diversification of our membership creates a multitude of networking opportunities that can benefit local businesses in many ways. Increasing the membership will strengthen the Association. We are currently weighing out options to make this happen.
I look forward to the coming year and will do my best to represent the Association. Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss matters that you think the DRHBA can help you with.
