I am very excited to be voted as the President of METRO for 2018. I have been a member for about 5 years, and I have seen firsthand the benefits of becoming an active member. This association has provided me with an amazing network of colleagues, friends, and clients. It is an absolute honor to serve as the President of an association that has done so much for me.
Looking forward to 2018, I am excited about all the opportunities we have. As I am writing this, we are in the midst of a gubernatorial election that will shape the future of our state, and our businesses. Regardless of the outcome, we have programs and committees in place to make this year one of the most successful in recent history. Membership is at a 10 year high, we have a brand new EO, and a brand new board of directors that I am excited to work with. METRO is geared up and ready to take on 2018.
As the New Year approaches, METRO is revitalized and ready to transform into the association that our industry needs. In addition to our amazing past Presidents and long-time members, we have had a surge of young and energetic members. These members are enthusiastic about steering the home building business into the future. We are welcoming these new members with open arms, and encouraging them to become active. We look forward to meetings with our new association colleagues, and actively look to learn from and do business with them.
This year, I am asking for your feedback. We are striving to put together programs that will provide our members with valuable information and opportunities to network. We are revitalizing our professional development/educational programs, and looking to restructure our general meetings. Please don’t hesitate to let me know what you think, good or bad. My goal is to make your membership at METRO, as successful as mine has been.
Wishing you a prosperous 2018,
2018 Metro President
