HBA/SMC Annual Membership Meeting–Marketing, Bylaws, Elections, Oh My!

Carol Morgan, managing partner of mRelevance, will be our featured speaker at this year’s Annual Membership Meeting. Carol will explain how and why your website serves as the center of your strategy and how that informs each of your marketing tactics and activities. Get ideas for improving your marketing program with dozens of real-world examples of successful and innovative marketing tactics. This seminar will provide big picture marketing strategy guidance for marketing new homes, remodeling, products, and more.

Our Annual Membership Meeting is the time for everyone to gather and learn, but also to share your input with your Home Builders Association. This year the board has made some changes to the bylaws and we need our members to vote on those changes. To see these proposed changes, click here.

As 2015 comes to a close, it is time to elect your 2016 Board of Directors. The nominations are in and we need you to vote on the proposed board, which can be found here.

Join Carol after the Annual Meeting concludes for a separate information session on Professional  Women in Building, including Carol’s experience as the chair of the NAHB Professional Women in Building Committee. The SMC will also be holding a brief discussion before the Annual Meeting begins.

We are also hosting a coat drive for this event. Please bring a new or gently used coat to benefit those in need.

If you are unable to attend the Annual Membership Meeting you may vote via proxy card or directly online, both of which can be found here.

This is your chance to have your voice heard!

A total of 50 men’s, women’s, and children’s coats collected through the month of November for Miracle Hill!

As many were making their way to the HBA of Greeenville Annual Meeting, Featuring Jerry Howard and sponsored by PestBan, on November 13th they brought a new or gently used coat with them. Many coats were brought to the TD Center for the meeting but for those that were not able to attend the meeting the HBA office had collection bins on hand.
