Happy New Year! I hope the holiday season finds everyone happy, healthy, and even allowed for a little extra relaxation. I think we all deserved it. For those of you whom I have not had the chance to meet or speak with, I am Joe Hillerson with Boulder Homes, and I will be the BMHBA President for 2023.

First off, I’d like to thank Jamie Schmidt for his service as the BMHBA President this past year. 2022 was a tumultuous year with many successes, and challenges for all of us in the homebuilding industry. His leadership and talents utilized as President in 2022 were a blessing to us all in the association. Thank you, Jamie! Next, I’d like to thank Greg Meidinger as an outgoing board member for his service as well. Greg has been on the board for a long time, as well as being a past President. Thank you, Greg! I’d also like to thank Brittney Roehrich for her service as a staff member of our association for the past couple of years. Brittney has accepted a position with the ND Association of Builders, and I’d like to offer her all the best with her new position with NDAB.

I want to thank everyone who attended our Fall Mixer & Board Elections. It was a great turnout, and it’s fun to see our event numbers continue to grow as our membership involvement increases! Our association elected six Board Directors that evening! Three new incoming Directors in Rory Anderson (Verity Homes), LeRoy Thomas (J.E. Homes), and Shane Gaffaney (American Roofing Supply), and three current Directors being re-elected in Vicki Moran (Hallmark Homes), Joe Vetter (Joe Vetter Construction), and McKenzie Lawler (Dakota Outdoorscapes). I’m excited to work with you all on the Board in 2023!

Home Show booth sales continue to grow. If your company has not signed up for the Home Show, I would encourage you to consider participating. It is a great event where our members can gather in one place to showcase products, services, and get our faces in front of the public eye. Furthermore, the Home Show is a great way to support our association and our mission to continue being an advocate for our industry.

Upcoming Events include our 64th Annual Banquet on January 19th 2023 at the Heritage Center, and the International Builder’s Show (IBS) in Las Vegas January 31st through February 2nd. These are a couple of great events, and I look forward to seeing you all at the Annual Banquet, and I hope to see many of you at IBS!

I would like to thank our Board of Directors and the Association, as well as our Executive Officer Dawn Watson for allowing me the opportunity to serve as President in the upcoming year. I look forward to a great 2023 and to working with each one of you!

Bismarck-Mandan Home Builders Association Members, Welcome to 2023!

The relationship between the BMHBA and the City of Bismarck is built on communication. This relationship has been on display throughout the past 12 months as we have worked to prepare for another code adoption year. As Mayor of Bismarck, I’m proud to be part of this cooperative effort to better serve our current and future residents. Thank you for your commitment to making our city the hometown for more than 75,000 people.

2022 proved to be a challenging year for many in the construction industry. Inflation has proven to have a significant impact on our country following the COVID-19 pandemic and Bismarck has not been immune to cost increases. Lumber, the building block of your profession, has been in an ongoing tug-of-war between pricing and the country’s supply and demand. However, we are hopeful the market will begin to correct itself, that commodity prices will begin to become more manageable, as we bring more people to Bismarck we will have ample quality staffing, and that we can all continue to work at our preferred pace.

Affordable housing remains a primary concern for Bismarck’s leadership. Just a few short months ago, the $16 million Boulevard Apartments were completed. This project generated 120 affordable apartments for our community and will serve as homes for folks and families that might otherwise need to relocate to Fargo, Minot, Dickinson or perhaps outside of North Dakota. We need more of these projects to complement the sustained growth that is helping to increase Bismarck’s population by an average of 1,000 people each year. And as we increase residential developments, commercial and industrial opportunities are sure to follow.

I hope the past few weeks have provided you the opportunity to spend time with friends and family and begin the process of recharging for all the upcoming year has to offer. We have much to do this year and I’m looking forward to our shared accomplishments in the new year. All the best to you and yours as we welcome in 2023,

Builders FirstSource is your first source for great customer service and high quality building materials.

Mike Schmitz || Mayor of Bismarck

The North Dakota Legislative Session convened on January 3rd and the North Dakota Association of Builders will be there every day, advocating for you and your business.

The organization will work to determine the impact of proposed bills on the building industry and will advocate on their behalf. NDAB will also work to keep you, the member, educated on the issues the Legislature is debating that may affect you and your business.

The NDAB Government Affairs Committee, which has members from each of the six locals, will meet weekly during the session to discuss introduced legislation. Those members are: Don Dabbert, Jr., Chairman; Jeff Sattler, Bismarck -Mandan HBA; Chad Moldenhauer, Bismarck-Mandan HBA; Conrad Klinkhammer, HBA of Fargo-Moorhead; Matt Oachs HBA of Fargo-Moorhead; Brandon Cobb, Forx Builders Association; Travis Mowbray, Minot Association of Builders; Casey Schriock, Minot Association of Builders; Rich Stradling, Dickinson Area Builders; Claire Campbell/Rob Clemow, Dickinson Area Builders; and Mike Dolbec, Williston Area Builders.

Members will receive weekly legislative updates during the legislative session. If there are bills that may affect the homebuilding industry and legislators need to hear from our members, we will send additional advocacy alerts.

This is the time when legislators need to hear your story. Talk to them when they are home on the weekends, attend their townhall meetings, email, write or call. They want to hear from you. The Legislature’s actions will affect the way we all do business, and it’s important to become a part of the process.

January 26 New Year Celebration


Associate Member Spotlight

Scott : Be honest with people. This is not your normal 8-5 job.

Brent : We’ve seen a dramatic change in mortgage lending in the last three years. Hang in there, better times are coming.

Aaron : A typical day in the mortgage industry includes meeting with potential homebuyers, getting them pre-approved for a loan, working on active applications and maintaining relationships with industry professionals including realtors, builders, appraisers, title companies, and insurance agents.

Scott : Professional fisherman.

Aaron : I always thought it would be great to own a remote resort that caters to those who love to hunt, fish, and enjoy the amazing outdoors.

Brent : I would be a golf course architect.

We are very much looking forward to the future and to helping more Capital Credit Union members reach their homeownership dreams. We love working together with other departments to make sure that, in addition to their mortgage loan, our members are getting all the best products and services. Our goal is to help our members grow in all facets of their financial lives.

I’m originally from Mandan, ND, and currently live in Bismarck. My wife, Heather, and I have three boys. I’ve been with CCU for 17 years.

I was born and raised in Bismarck, ND. I attended Bismarck State College and St. Cloud State University. I live in Bismarck with my two dogs Penny (yellow Lab) and Hank (vizsla). I’ve been with CCU for 12 years

I grew up in Hazen, ND, and earned a bachelor’s degree in computer technology management from Dickinson State University. I currently live in Bismarck, and I have been with CCU for 7 years.

Aaron : I sort of stumbled into it. I didn’t know what I wanted to do after college and had a friend who worked at a temp agency. She asked what I knew about the mortgage industry, and I said, “just what I learned in finance class.” Twenty years later I’m still working with mortgages.

Brent : I was brought into the mortgage industry by a family friend. At that time, I had many years of sales experience, and he asked if I was interested in trying to sell mortgage products.

Our team, both in mortgage and the credit union as a whole. We are truly invested in our members and their growth and love being part of making their dreams come true. We pride ourselves in being accountable, approachable and making a difference. At Capital Credit Union, you get more than just a mortgage, you get a friend who is in your corner and always looking out for your best interest.

Scott : The happiness on people’s faces when they get their first home.

Aaron : Helping first-time homebuyers. Homeownership is such a wonderful thing. You feel pretty special seeing their excitement and knowing you helped make it happen.

2022 marks my 20th year living in Bismarck and working in the construction industry. I have been active in the BMHBA for the last 16 years.

I work for American Roofing Supply, and we are part of SRS Distribution. My position as the Territory Manager keeps me busy in and outside of the office.

I have been part of organizations through employers that have been active members since 2001.

Technology has changed the way we all do business, providing information in seconds rather than hours.

I am the Operations Manager for J.E. Homes in Bismarck. The most significant change I’ve seen over the course of my career is the diminishing number of skilled trades. Hopefully we can help change this for the next generation of builders.

I really enjoy the Home Show and all the fun events that we have. It is a great way to network with new and old friends.

Kodiak Island Brown Bear Hunt.

I enjoy the Golf Scramble but most of all the networking within the membership.

I would love to travel through the Mediterranean Sea for four weeks to see Egypt, Rome, Spain, Greece, etc.

I have been a BMHBA member for 10+ years now!

I work for Verity Holdings Corp as Director of Sales, Marketing and Leasing.

In my 13+ years in the building industry, a LOT has changed! First off, each year seems to introduce new products that become a gamechanger in residential construction. Things such as quartz countertops, vinyl planking, LP siding, etc – give

My favorite part of being a member of the BMHBA is definitely the relationships I have made with other members of the BMHBA. It is a tight-knit group that feels a lot like family (without the family squabbling seen at Christmas dinner –haha!). Along with this – serving the members of the BMHBA on the Board of Directors has also been one of my favorite things to do!

My wife Ashley and I have always wanted to travel to Nashville! Just have never found the time to do so!

In November, job growth slowed slightly from the previous month but still showed strength despite tight monetary policy. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.7% in November as the number of persons in the labor force decreased for the third straight month.

Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 263,000 in November, following a gain of 284,000 in October, as reported in the Employment Situation Summary. It marks the smallest monthly job gain since April 2021. The estimate for September was revised down by 46,000 from +315,000 to +269,000, while the October increase was revised up by 23,000, from +261,000 to +284,000. In the first eleven months of 2022, about 4.3 million jobs were created, and monthly employment growth averaged 392,000 per month, compared with a 562,000 monthly average gain in 2021.

The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.7% in November. The number of unemployed persons was essentially unchanged at 6.0 million, while the number of employed persons decreased by 138,000.

Meanwhile, the labor force participation rate, the proportion of the population either looking for a job or already with a job, edged down 0.1 percentage point to 62.1% in November, reflecting the increase in the number of persons not in the labor force (+359,000) and the decrease in the number of persons in the labor force (-186,000). Moreover, the labor force participation rate for people who aged between 25 and 54 decreased to 82.4%. Both of these two rates are still below their pre-pandemic levels in the beginning of 2020, and are not fully recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic.

For industry sectors, leisure and hospitality (+88,000), health care (+45,000), and government (+42,000) had notable job gains in November, while employment in retail trade (-30,000) and in transportation and warehousing (-15,000) declined.

Employment in the overall construction sector rose by 20,000 in November, following a 9,000 gain in October. Residential construction gained 3,900 jobs, while non-residential construction employment gained 16,300 jobs in November. Residential construction employment currently exceeds its level in February 2020, while 87% of non-residential construction jobs lost in March and April have now been recovered.

Residential construction employment now stands at 3.2 million in November, broken down as 903,000 builders and 2.3 million residential specialty trade contractors. The 6-month moving average of job gains for residential construction was 4,617 a month. Over the last 12 months, home builders and remodelers added 105,000 jobs on a net basis. Since the low point following the Great Recession, residential construction has gained 1,204,500 positions.

In November, the unemployment rate for construction workers declined by 0.8 percentage points to 4.6% on a seasonally adjusted basis. The unemployment rate for construction workers has been trending lower, after reaching 14.2% in April 2020, due to the housing demand impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
