Florida Home Builders Association Honors Judy James as its 2015 Woman of Distinction
For Immediate Release:
October 17, 2015 – The Florida Home Builders Association honored Judy James of Molloy & James as the 2015 Woman of Distinction, a recognition awarded by over 7,500 FHBA members across the state. Selected by a council of industry leaders, the award is presented to a woman member who exhibits best practices, expertise, and exceptional leadership qualities.
James was presented the award on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015, during the FHBA Fall Leadership Conference at the PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
James has been involved in the building industry for over 34 years and is a partner in the law firm of Molloy & James, specializing in land use and corporate law. She unselfishly donates her time to local builders associations throughout Florida, providing advice on matters pertaining to impact fees, land use, and the regulatory process. She has also served as a mentor to many women across the state and encouraged their involvement in leadership positions within the home builders associations both at a local and state level.
“FHBA recognizes the lack of gender diversity within our industry,” said Rusty Payton, FHBA CEO/Chief Lobbyist. “We strive to emphasize the outstanding successes and innovations of woman builders and trade partners. We are proud to recognize Judy for her outstanding career accomplishments.”
Established in 1949, the Florida Home Builders Association is affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and twenty-four local and regional builder/industry associations. FHBA, along with its affiliates, work to improve the business of building in Florida.
