….A Friendly Reminder From Your President“it makes our Association STRONGER!!!!”
This time of year is the season for RV shows, boat shows, monster truck eventsand home improvement shows
all trying to get us out of the house during badweather. But as Punxsutawney Phil reported at the first of February, SPRINGis right around the corner! In a month or so we will be into rainy season andthen things will start to bloom. Similarly, the seasons change for our businessesalso. The winter gives us opportunities to do the things we have put on the backburner during the busiest parts of the year. We step up involvement with oppor-tunities to learn, getting in some extra educating either through a college course
or industry seminars. In today’s age of internet, we have access to all forms of additional learning. Ben Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge paysthe best interest.” The sowing of seeds that we do all year, when we find the
time, sprouts and grows our businesses throughout the year. In the buildingbusiness, spring through fall is when we ramp things up for our busy seasons,and that, to me, always feels good. The first Saturday of May is our RemodelersTour, and in June we will have our annual Golf Outing, which are great oppor-tunities to chase some business and have some extra fun doing it.
Next month’s membership meeting speakers will be Greg Furnish, our state In-
diana Builders Association President, and Cindy Bussell, our IBA COO. Theywill be traveling to our local to keep us informed of what the IBA is doing forour local and what the IBA is doing for us and our businesses as members aswell. Cindy will explain the Builder Rebate Program
an incredibly simple and
easy way to put rebate money back in our pockets. I’m not just spouting off, our
company has been taking advantage of what we can, which has resulted in usreceiving three quarterly rebate checks so far. Last year, the rebate programeffectively paid our membership dues while also providing our local with a per-centage rebate as well. We will be more determined to focus our buying to makethis program even more advantageous. With these guests from the state level,we can gain firsthand knowledge of sources of help. It gives us the opportunityto ask question specifically of what the builders association can do for us.
To make next month’s meeting irresistible, Bob Buescher Homes has generously
agreed to sponsor our dinner! They will be paying for our dinner; all we have todo is R.S.V.P and show up. How can we turn that down? And to make things
even better, if you stand next to me, I’ll buy you a drink. How about that!
Again, I want to thank Jeff Wilson and Bob Buescher Homes for sponsoring themeeting. See everyone there!
BANI President 2013
