SEPTEMBER MEETING AND FISH FRY NIGHT IN AMERICA
Thank you PNG, Glenn Garrett Construction, Kapasi Glass, C. L. Cannon and Sons
Another great parking lot meeting and Fish Fry happened at 341 East Kennedy Street. The sponsors above were all in for this great line up of food and fun. Parking lot meetings have become meeting favorite for our members. It feels like your back yard, but with your buddies hanging around. The food was absolutely exceptional with fresh fried fish, Venison and pork stew and great sides. We are so fortunate to have members who love to cook good food! Thank you! Thank you!
Several important announcements were made including the following: HBA has been in need of a By Laws "renovation". Several Board members worked diligently to craft bylaws that are better suited to our current organization. The biggest change is in the number of Board members. We currently have 6 Builder members on the Executive Committee. Under the new rules, the EC will be composed of 5 Builder members and 1 Associate VP. Also the numbers of Builder and Associate Board Members will be reduced by one each. You will also see that Executive Officers have a prominent role in planning the Showcase of Homes. This will make us much more efficient when planning and executing this event. Please read the NEW BYLAWS before the next meeting. Membership will be asked to vote on the bylaws at the October Meeting.
In addition to by laws, it was also announced that HBA of Spartanburg is introducing a voluntary accreditation program. HBA Spartanburg committee members (Mark Autorino, Allen Bunn, Manning Lynch, Len Reed, Mark Weizenecker) have been meeting, planning, & discussing a voluntary accreditation initiative since we hosted the State HBA District 4 meeting on August 3. The HBA Accreditation Committee is in the process of refining the requirements and firming up an overall plan for this program. This would be a totally voluntary engagement on the part of our Builder members. No one would be required to participate. We would like to roll this out in January 2016. As a service to our Builder members, currently, no fee will be involved in participation. In order to get the program in the pipeline in time to market it with the 2016 Showcase, we must get moving. If you are interested in participating in the program, you would need to get the required 6 hours of CE at the HBA SC State Convention on Fri. Oct. 23 . Mark Nix has offered us a special rate for lunch and 6 hours of classes on Friday. These 6 hours would satisfy the CE requirement for accreditation. We do not envision being able to offer our own classes before January so this is the best opportunity to get this done. However, moving forward, we hope to offer classes locally that would be at little or no charge. Other requirments are check list items that you can probably take care of from your desk. More information will be forthcoming. But the CE piece needed to be announced in order for you to take advantage of the State Convention classes. Click right here to see the COURSE SCHEDULE
