El Paso hosts TAB
Leadership

The El Paso Association of Builders


partnered to bring the Texas
Association of Builder Executive
Leadership team to El Paso for the first
time in over 20 years. The conference
was a quarterly meeting with council
chairs and committee chairpersons to
look at the current status of TAB and to
vote on items required by the bylaws.
Scott Norman, Executive Vice
President of the state association
welcomed the opportunity to come to
El Paso. “ I’m surprised and pleased
that we were able to introduce many of
our executive team to El Paso,
something that in my 17 years at TAB
we’ve never done,” he told the
Outlook.
Randy Bowling, TAB 2020 President
was encouraged by the comments
made to him during the visit. “I can tell
you that anytime we can promote our
wonderful city and all we have to offer
I’m going to do that,” he said. “I want
to let everyone know that we are open
for business and hope to have the
members go out to their communities
and tell people about El Paso,”
Bowling said.
The three-day event required the
leadership to travel from all points in
Texas. The comments were all the
same, all good, and with some
interesting surprises. “We only have
seen what the news says, and this trip
has convinced us that El Paso is
unique but in a Texas way,” said one
out of towner. “We knew you were on
the border, just didn’t realize you were
literally on the border,” said Debra
Guerrero of San Antonio, a first-time
visitor. She left with a new
appreciation for El Paso and
suggested that as a member of other
organizations in and around San
Antonio she would be telling them to
come and visit. “I had no idea what a
gem this place is, the history, the
culture, the people,” she continued.
The team did a bus tour of the area
including going along the border
highway, seeing the Luchese boot
factory store, and traveling through
Trans Mountain. UTEP was featured
as well after a sunset dinner at the
Coronado Country Club. “I think that
we showcased El Paso pretty well, and
now we have some new ambassadors
to talk good about us,” Bowling said.
The meeting normally for only the
leadership included EPAB President
Edgar Garcia and VP Sal Masoud
along with Ray Adauto who was the
tour guide for the bus trip. Local
