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.
