Chairperson’s Message by Jenny Samek

Thanks to all who joined us at the tour of Schneider Industries in January. We had a great turnout. I was very impressed with the facility. It is great that they are the last manufacturing company in the US making electrical breakers. Now if only ever ything was still being manufactured in the USA, our country would be in a very different economic state. I think we should all be more conscious in buying American made and local products whenever possible! Please join us for the Home and Garden Show in February. We will be collecting food for the Food Bank again this year, so come help us fill the Remodelers Council Food Bank House. We still have time slots available for volunteers. Please call the HBAL office at 402-423-4225 to sign up for a shift. Even if you are not an exhibitor, stop by the Home Show to say hello to all the other members and get ideas for your own projects. Thanks,

Tour of Remodeled Homes

National Designation Month:

Gain a Competitive Edge with a Designation With today’s changing market, it is more important than ever that building industry professionals maintain their edge. Like any other profession, a changing market can translate into fiercer competition for your business. Earning a designation from NAHB Education can be a great way to distinguish yourself—and your company. Although February is National Designation Month, we ask you to consider the opportunities NAHB provides to advance your industry knowledge and skills throughout the year. Having a designation tells clients that you have honed your business skills and have superior training, hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge of your profession. Designation holders can also take advantage of valuable networking opportunities during their enrollment, working closely with expert instructors and other professionals within their field and outside their specific areas of expertise. As part of National Designation Month public relations efforts, NAHB educates consumers about the value of selecting a professional with a designation, so your hard work will mean even more when it comes marketing yourself and your business. If you’re interested in taking a NAHB class, contact Jennie Korth at 402-423-4225 or jennie@hbal.org. For more information on the professional designations offered by NAHB and National Designation Month, visit www.nahb.org/NDM.
