Congratulations to Crystal and Tammy!

Congratulations to Tammy Krimm and Crystal Yanes for their promotions to Southern Home and Garden Show Manager and Vice President, Chief Operations Officer, respectively.

Tammy has been with the Home Builders Association for two years and involved in the Southern Home and Garden Show for three years. Throughout her time at the HBA Tammy has been involved in several aspects of the association, from accounting to membership services and more. We are lucky to have someone as versatile as Tammy!

In addition to planning all of the member events, Crystal also developed the Bridge Awards program, the Approved Professional Builder program, and is the staff member in charge of the Sales & Marketing Council. She has been with the HBA for four years now and very much deserves the recognition. Thanks for all of your hard work, Crystal!

Congratulations to both Tammy and Crystal!
