It is a great honor to serve as the new President of the Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga (HBAGC) for 2016. I have had the great privilege of being born and raised in Chattanooga and I am excited for the opportunity to help lead an organization that has been such a vital part of the community. Many know HBAGC as the host of the Annual Tri State Home Show which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few of the other contributions of the Association.
HBAGC’s has nearly 500 members and represents thousands of other professionals involved in all facets of the local home building industry. Our members have access to the industries’ best continuing educational opportunities and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics focusing on professionalism and ethical business practices. The Association is a leading advocate for quality construction practices and maintaining the affordability of housing. HBAGC also acts as a valuable consumer resource for finding quality professional services and products.
HBAGC has a proud history and continued commitment to giving back to the local community. The Association’s philanthropic and charitable efforts include providing substantial financial support and volunteer services to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross and to other community efforts that have included free assistance to storm victims. HBAGC’s commitment to education doesn’t stop at providing opportunities for its membership. It provides scholarships to local students and has furnished supplies to local schools for years.
The Chattanooga area is already one of the nation’s best places to live and has unlimited potential for an even brighter future. The Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga is committed to doing its part to help this great community maximize that potential.
