A Message From the AHBA President
A message from the AHBA President 2016 [Brandon Tedder]
Wow… time is flying in 2016 as spring approaches. I want to take a moment to thank the membership for allowing me to continue to serve the AHBA this year as your President. We will be sending out messages from the President each quarter, ideally within a couple weeks after each Board of Director’s meeting so that we can share upcoming events and keep you abreast of what the AHBA is working on. Through your efforts, we will succeed, no matter what faces us.
A MESSAGE FROM THE AHBA ASSOCIATES COUNCIL CHAIRMAN BILL ROSS
Associates and Affiliate Members,
As we enter into the beginning of our third month of 2016, time is passing by ever so quickly. Last month I discussed the importance of growth, being active and participating on all levels within our local, state and national HBA’s. Spring is just around the corner and building activities on the rise, the expectation of becoming busier and organizing our time by strategically planning and scheduling becomes extremely important. There are only so many hours in the day and how wisely we choose to spend our time as ambassadors for the very industry that supports our economy, ourselves, as well as our families is critical. We must be engaged and focused on the direction we are headed and truly understand our collective goals as associate members.
