Service in any establishment is the opposite of being a job, a duty, or an obligation. As your president for the past year, I can affirmatively tell you that it has been my distinct honor and pleasure to represent our industry. Together, we faced adversity with Worker’s Compensation Reform and encountered much opposition with the passage of a new review/approval process for the Florida Building Code. While we still monitor and work to successfully overcome both of these significant obstacles, we have accomplished a lot and there is more work to be done.
You can rest assured that with the incoming FHBA leadership with Greg Matovina, President, and Shelley Stewart, Second Vice President, we are destined for another great year. Join with me as we install both Greg and Shelley, and recognize those in the industry who are deserving of high honors during the FHBA Fall Leadership Conference on October 18-21, 2017 at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf and Spa Resort in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

As this is my final e-newsletter message as your president, I’d like to personally thank each and every one of you for your support, encouragement, and help in the past year. You are the mission behind our association, where we work to improve the economic environment of the building industry to the success and betterment of your business. Again, it has been an honor.
