The PBA Fall Board Meeting in Hershey, PA was a “sweet” success. This year saw the unanimous passing of PBA’s 2018 Budget and the election of next year’s slate of officers, RVP’s, and RLO’s. We also engaged in an excellent seminar on disaster recovery, our annual Meet the Builder event, and the Government Affairs Committee’s confirmation of the signing of PA House Bill 409 (the “RAC Fix” bill).
Meet the Builder
PBA’s third annual Meet the Builder featured 11 building industry focused service providers at a casual cocktail reception on Friday, October 27 at the Hershey Lodge. The event was a great way for PBA’s active builders and remodeler members to socialize, share ideas, and meet large national/regional product manufacturers as well as suppliers and vendors. Thanks to our sponsors and attendees for a great event.
Disaster Recovery Fall Seminar
Members gathered Friday afternoon for a seminar entitled “Lessons Learned” from Hurricane Harvey & Irma. PBA members and associates were joined by Ali M. Memari, Ph.D., P.E., Bernard and Henrietta Hankin Chair of Residential Construction at The Pennsylvania State University and Director, Pennsylvania Housing Research Center (PHRC) in a roundtable discussion about how Pennsylvania can use natural disaster information from storms like Harvey and Irma.
Finally, a huge thank you to our partners EK McConkey, and BDX for networking with our members and assisting them with questions over the weekend. We also thank McConkey for sponsoring the EOC Training Reception at Troegs.
