From the President

NHHBA President Lynette Rogers  

Dear NHHBA Members:

I am excited and honored to take on this role as President of The New Hampshire Homebuilders Association and I look forward to work for you and with you on this next adventure. With the new executive team, you have elected I believe together we can continue to move the association forward in a positive direction. Thank you to the 2016 Executive Team for working through some tough issues and setting the stage for success.

There are always going to be changes in our lives and businesses and it is how we adapt to those changes that make us stronger. The state association has been changing over the past year in order to meet the needs of our members and the programs that are offered. The local associations have been doing the same with a few mergers.

It has been a busy season as the various locals have held numerous educational meetings including one hosted by HBRASWNH at the Common Man in Claremont, NH last month discussing Building with Wood: Meeting the Provisions of the 2015 IRC. Both Southern and Greater Manchester Nashua/Concord held meetings with local Building officials on Tiny houses and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU). Both were well attended and spurred a lot of discussion. Seacoast also held a meeting where they conducted a Builder roundtable sharing ideas with follow colleagues to help all their businesses grow. Lakes Region had a social meeting in which they rewarded two students from Huot Voc Tech that won the New Hampshire Skills competition and are going to Kentucky for nationals. They also donated $250 to both of them to help with travel costs. They also announced that they had awarded a $1,000 scholarship for one Huot graduate going on to college and two $250 tool belt awards. These are all great activities going on at the local chapters that are bringing members together. So, make sure you are attending these meetings and getting the most out of your membership.

We are looking forward to offering many more educational opportunities in the future, so feel free to reach out to let us know what other topics you are interested in. There are a lot of committees that you can join on both the local and state levels, so make sure you get involved as it really can make a difference in your business. I look forward to serving you and seeing you at a meeting soon.

Yours Truly,

Lynette Rogers

2017 NHHBA President
