The City of Bismarck is expanding its popular Citizen Academy offerings in its second year of availability.

The Citizen Academy is an opportunity for Bismarck citizens to attend a classroom setting, as well as take tours of various municipal facilities. The academy immerses attendees in how local government pays for its services and how a balance is struck between providing services and trying to be responsible stewards of taxpayers’ funds.

In the first months of 2022, the Citizen Academy was held for eight weeks as attendees learned about the 14 departments that comprise the City of Bismarck government. In 2023, this will be expanded to 12 weeks and the class size will be increased from 12 to 20.

“We really got an opportunity to learn from that first academy and expanded the offerings based on the feedback we received from that first class and the staff involved in the sessions,” said City of Bismarck Assistant Administrator Jason Tomanek. “We hope this next expanded offering helps

to both increase the number of people we can engage and give each department a bit more time to breathe during the sessions.”

Participants will also learn how to become more involved in local government advisory boards, commissions and other ways to become engaged with municipal government. Opportunities will be provided to connect with community leaders including the Mayor, City Commissioners and Department Directors with a wide variety of backgrounds and experience in local government operations.

To apply for admission to the Citizen Academy, interested candidates must complete an application, after which eligibility will be verified. There are no fees to participate in the program.

The Citizen Academy will begin on Thursday, January 5, 2023. Classes meet at 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays through the end of March.

To learn more about the Citizen Academy, visit https:// Citizen Academy. For questions about the application process, contact Tomanek at (701) 355 1300 or by email at

Save the Date 64th Annual Banquet

January 19, 2023

Northern Lights Atrium | Heritage Center

November is best known for change: change of green leaves into red, brown and orange, change of hot temperatures into chilly ones, and changing from our sandals into thick socks and boots. For North Dakota Association of Builders, it also means a change in leadership.

And for Bismarck Mandan Home Builders, this change in leadership will be an especially meaningful one.

On November 17th, Jeff Sattler of Sattler homes will be sworn in as NDAB President for 2023. Jeff graduated from North Dakota State College of Science where he studied Architectural Drafting and Project Management. Jeff has worked with the family business started by his father, Rob Sattler, for many years, where he first started as a finish carpenter.

Jeff’s leadership in the homebuilding industry started at the Bismarck Mandan local where he’s worn many hats, including President. His commitment has included serving on the NDAB PAC Board of Trustees and the Government Affairs Committees along with his role on the Board of Directors. Jeff also took on the role of helping NDAB transition between CEO’s last year.

Having your state organization’s President come from your community is a big deal. Not only will Jeff lead the organization’s vision for the next year, he will also help represent NDAB during the 2023 North

Dakota Legislative Session. Showing your support for Jeff and for the organization will go a long way towards seeing the industry be successful in North Dakota for years to come.

Please join us for the NDAB Annual Meeting and Banquet Thursday, November 17 at the North Dakota Heritage Center. The evening will start with a social at 5:30 pm with the banquet immediately following.

You can sign up for the banquet using the QR code provided. We look forward to seeing you there!

Associate Member Spotlight

Kassy:I was born and raised in Mandan, North Dakota. I graduated from Bismarck State College with an associate degree and from Dickinson State University with a bachelor’s degree. Currently, I live in Bismarck with my husband and our three boys, and I’ve been with Starion Bank for 17 years.

Brittany:I am originally from Cavalier, North Dakota. I currently live in Bismarck with my husband and two boys, and I’ve been with Starion Bank for six years.

What is an interesting fact about your business that most people don’t know? Starion Bank started in the small town of Oakes, North Dakota in 1969. Our founder, Frank Larson, believed that a local community bank should be an engine of growth and give back to the community it serves. This way of living and doing business has helped Starion grow and prosper for more than 50 years.

Do you have any advice for someone just entering this industry? RUN haha! Treat it as if you are self employed. Be an ambitious self starter, grow and nourish partnerships, and always hold yourself accountable. It’s a rewarding career, and over the years, you’ll build some of the best lifelong friendships. Enjoy the crazy ride!

What is a typical day like for you? No two days are the same, which keeps our attention and keeps life interesting! Our typical days are fulfilled with helping our clients navigate their homeownership dreams by helping determine the appropriate home loan products for their unique situation. From the first conversation all the way through to closing on your dream home, we’re here every step of the way and working hard for you each day.

If I weren’t in this industry, I’d be Kassy:I can’t imagine doing anything thing else. However, before I graduated, I’d always wanted to be an attorney or interior designer.

Brittany:Same, I can’t imagine doing anything else. But prior to getting into this industry, I always thought I’d do something in criminal justice or the Police Youth Bureau.

What do you hope to see Starion Bank accomplish in the coming years? We would like to see Starion Bank continue to its growth and success, helping more people buy dream homes, start businesses, save for retirement, and protect what matters most to them. And all while providing the best and most personalized service you expect from your local community bank.

What inspired you to enter this industry?

Kassy:My love for all things real estate! I was always a big HGTV fan and love to watch all those home selling shows.

Brittany:I started off in the title industry and wanted to know more about the start of the process, which led me to mortgage lending.

What makes your business unique from other banks in the area? The thing that sets us apart is we truly are each other’s biggest fans, cheerleaders, and advocates! Even though we each have our own individual goals with separate clients and pipelines, we always support each other and always put the customers first! We truly enjoy working with each other!

What is your favorite part of your job? That no two days are the same! We have the best job because we get to watch people achieve their home ownership dreams!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Kassy:I love spending time with my family outdoors, whether it’s riding bike or enjoying the Missouri River! In the winter months, my husband and I like to take a trip to somewhere with the beach and sunshine! When I have time to myself, I love to sit down and read a good book.

Brittany:In the summer months you’ll find us taking advantage of every opportunity to enjoy the nice weather on the Missouri River. We love spending time outside and visiting with our neighbors and our extended family.

What do you love most about the fall season?

Kassy:I love all things fall, cuddling up in a good comfy sweater, the changing colors of the season and enjoying the evenings outside.

Brittany:I love the change of colors, sweater weather and sports season!

The home building industry has faced a number of challenges in the wake of Covid supply chain issues and rising material costs in particular, as well as an ongoing skilled labor shortage that may be causing builders to explore different building options. One area in particular that’s been on the rise amid these economic issues is offsite construction, which has a number of benefits including reduced labor, shorter build times and less material waste that may be attractive to both builders and buyers.

"Pre Covid, I saw a significant increase in offsite construction, and particularly modular construction, at the 2020 International Builders' Show [IBS],” shared Ken Semler, president and CEO of Impresa Modular. "At that time, it was primarily driven by the lack of labor and overall costs.

"At the 2022 IBS, costs were off the charts the broken supply chain, rapidly increasing costs and the lack of labor has driven builders and developers to seek offsite modular construction, and it has only gotten stronger," he added. "Economics is making everyone look at better and more efficient ways to build."

Semler and other industry pros recently weighed in on the benefits of offsite construction, especially in the current economic climate, and what the future could bring for these types of building methods. Some of the issues that offsite building can help tackle include:

• Rising interest rates: "An initial advantage for offsite construction could be due to the speed at which a home can be 'completed' when interest rates are on the rise," stated Michael H. Weber, IOM, CGP, CSI, national business development manager at The Euclid Chemical Co. "For example, if you wait six to eight months for a stick built home to be completed in an economy where interest rates are going up, getting an 'offsite' home constructed faster allows closure on the loan at a lower interest rate, which may determine if the mortgage is still affordable."

• Shipping/fuel costs: "It's cheaper to ship a finished assembly

once as opposed to shipping miscellaneous parts multiple times on separate vehicle deliveries for an on site project," noted Jack Armstrong, BSChE, executive director/COO at Structural Insulated Panel Association (SIPA). "Offsite remains more economical, especially in light of rising fuel and shipping costs."

• Labor: "Offsite manufacturing typically occurs under cover, so weather isn't an issue; the right tools are always at hand, and employees are responsible for the same/similar tasks from one project to the next providing greater efficiencies," Weber said. "Offsite construction, with employees repeating the same or similar tasks daily, offers an opportunity to train unskilled employees faster as compared to onsite built construction’s problematic and time consuming on the job training."

The controlled environment also decreases weather related delays and creates a complete component that can be erected quickly on site.

"On a recent residential build in a rural location outside Steamboat Springs, subcontractors were difficult to find due to the locale," recalled Mikel Ochs, president of operations at Whisper Creek Homes. "A panelized building system allowed the builder to dry in faster, leave the structure over the first winter, then return in the summer to finish interiors."

The 2023 IBS features a number of education sessions for builders looking into these types of building methods, including:

• Site vs. Modular: How the Construction Processes Differ (Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 9:30 a.m. PST)

• The 4 Ps of the New Multifamily Ecosystem (Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 4 p.m. PST)

• Capitalizing on The Benefits of Offsite Framing: It’s Easier Than You Think (Wednesday, Feb. 1, at 1 p.m. PST)

The Building Systems Community will offer additional opportunities to learn about offsite construction and network with industry professionals.

The business of the typical NAHB builder grew significantly between 2020 and 2021, according to results from NAHB's latest member census. The 2021 NAHB census shows that the median gross revenue of an NAHB builder in 2021 was an all time high of $3.3 million, up 26.9% from the previous year.

NAHB reinstated its member census during the industry wide downturn of 2008, when median annual revenue of builder members was only around $1 million. Median annual revenue began rising in 2013, plateauing at $2.6 million to $2.7 million from 2017 through 2020.

Although their median revenue has increased recently, most NAHB builders remain relatively small businesses by conventional standards. According to the 2021 NAHB census:

• 14% of NAHB's builder members reported a dollar volume of less than $500,000,

• 13% reported between $500,000 and $999,999,

• 38% reported between $1 million and $4.9 million,

• 15% reported between $5 million and $9.9 million,

• 6% reported between $10 million and $14.9 million, and

• 13% reported $15 million or more.

In comparison, the Small Business Administration's size standards classify most types of construction businesses

as small if they have average annual receipts of less than $39.5 million.

Agreeing with the increase in builder revenue, there was a particularly strong surge in the average number of housing starts per builder between 2020 and 2021 from 41 in 2020 to 63.1. The average number of single family starts grew by 58.2% (from 26.3 to 41.6), while the average number of multifamily starts increased by 46.3% (from 14.7 to 21.5).
