Our primary purposes are to provide information exchange, communication and education for members; to interact with local, state and federal legislative bodies to foster a positive building climate; to provide a forum to implement policies that affect the building industry; and to promote professionalism among our members.
Letter from Our New President,
As we transition into fall, so the GFWBA transitions.
This was so magnificently celebrated on September 26th with our 75th Anniversary and Installation Gala. A special thanks goes out to the Installation Chairwoman Diane Nix Kessler, MC of Ceremonies Bob Madeja, invaluable GFWBA staff Kimberly Eaton-Pregler & Sharon Liles Love and to all those that volunteered and attended. It was a night to remember- celebrating all that has been accomplished since the GFWBA was established and highlighting the work of our members. We were also very honored to have Mayor Betsy Price join us and champion our efforts. We truly have much to be proud of, as well as much to look forward to.
Many thanks goes to Don Shelton of Bush, Rudnicki, Shelton for the value he offered our members on 10/2 with his TAB Contracts update class. His proactive approach keeps our members informed and prepared for the legal changes in our industry. We are thankful for all that Don & his firm does on behalf of our association and its members.
We have lots of exciting things on the horizon, including the 6th annual Young Professionals Fall Social on 10/24 at Habitat for Humanity, and Municipal Night featuring Ted Cruz on 11/8 at the Omni Hotel. Please join us to celebrate all that our association is doing on behalf of our industry!
Letter from Bill Bettis, Past President
Today, September 11, 2019, I am reflecting on our incredible 9/11 event 18 years ago. The loss of lives and tremendous acts of heroism engulfed and united our nation in a way not experienced in recent history. Thank you to those men, women, and their families who made so many sacrifices.
As GFWBA heads into the last month of this fiscal year, I must shout out a great thank you to all who work so hard to make our association so great. The clay shoot was a huge success and tonight we honor our Associates with a dinner at Joe T’s, a venue we all heartily embrace. Thank you Associates!Read More
