Greetings fellow Members,
I’m hoping that all of you enjoyed your snowy Halloween and that everyone had a good October. I wanted to thank everyone who attended the Chili Cookoff at Brakur Custom Cabinetry. Thanks to our sponsor and host Chad Kurtz, and hats off to Heather Runge of Nicor who won the event.
The statewide membership drive is complete and the SSHBA has recruited many new members. Hello to all of you! Special thanks to the team captains: Pat Connelly, Mark Kaup, Brian Rigsby, and Matt Denniger. Soon we will have the results of the statewide drive and who the big winners are.
I wanted to remind everyone of our many exciting upcoming events! This month there will be a New Member Orientation event at Embers Tap House at 6pm on the 18th. All the participants of the Membership Drive and new members are invited. Then on November 21st at the Seigle’s Cabinet Center inside of the Crest Electric in New Lenox, will be a Single Malt Scotch tasting. I can’t wait for that event and to see all of you there. Finally, on December 6th will be a Home Builders of Illinois meeting at 1 pm followed by the Inaugural Ball at Ruffled Feathers in Lemont, beginning at 6pm. Please consider attending as this will be the installation of our 2020 Board of Directors! Entertainment after the dinner will be provided by Chicago DJ’s.
Start getting revved up because the Autobahn Racing Event is next on the SSHBA Calendar. It will be held on Thursday, August 15th at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet starting at 4:00pm.
Come out as a team, an individual driver, just for dinner, and/or sign up for sponsorship! This is a fun summer night that our members anticipate each year. If you haven’t been out to the Autobahn Racing Event yet, this is your year!

Greetings fellow members. We survived that wacky winter and by now Spring has finally sprung.
I wanted to thank everyone who attended the March General Membership Meeting and Metrostudy for providing some interesting information. Also, I wanted to thank everyone who showed up for the OSHA class at the SSHBA office last month. I heard it was very interesting and educational.
I also want to let everyone know that April is full of events for everyone at the SSHBA. On April 26th is our annual Kentucky Derby Raffle at Harrah’s Casino and Hotel in Joilet. Tickets for the raffle and event can be purchased from any number of members that are selling them, or me. We have always had a great time at this event, please attend. On April 30th in Springfield, IL is the annual Home Builders of Illinois Lobby Day. This event is a chance for everyone in our industry to have a chance to visit our elected officials in the state capital and lobby them on several important building industry related issues. This is the best time for YOUR voice to be heard. The meeting will be at the Sagamo Club, in Springfield, at 10:30am. We will, through Shannon, be taking the Amtrak from Joliet to Springfield and back on the 30th.
If you’re looking to get more involved in the Association, there are many committee meetings to do the nuts and bolts work of running the association. I’ve said it before, if you want to get something out of your membership join a committee and get involved.
Happy Easter to everyone and Let’s get building.
