President’s Message Bo Jones, HBAL President

It is an honor to serve as President of HBAL for 2018. A big thank you for everyone’s support and encouragement. I follow in the footsteps of great leaders before me and appreciate the ability to reach out to them as needed. I am stepping in during one of HBAL's highest membership levels with over 600 member companies. I am hopeful we can continue the trend. One of my goals for this next year is to continue HBAL’s goal of introducing youth to the construction industry. During the Installation Ceremony on January 15, the new Careers in Construction video was shown. We will be using the video as one of our tools in getting youth involved. Please reach out to us if you have any ideas or programs in place where we can work together to keep the younger workforce strong. Coming up February 9-11 is the 46th annual Nebraska Builders Home & Garden Show at the Lancaster Event Center. This is always a fun event. I encourage HBAL members to take advantage of the VIP ticket you received in the mail last month. I hope to see everyone there. HBAL is closely monitoring the recommendations that were published by the Citizens Transportation Coalition last month. We will be meeting with Miki Esposito and Bob Caldwell, co-chairs of the committee, to gather more information and allow us the opportunity to share our feedback with them. If you have concerns about this topic, please contact Michaela at the HBAL office or myself. Best wishes to all of you in 2018. Let’s continue our passion and commitment to the homebuilding community of Lincoln.

______________________________ Matt Kleinschmit, 2017 President

To our Home Builders Family, We are both still floating in the clouds in amazement for the recognition with the HBAL Proclamation and "Honorable Life Membership" that Vicki and I received Monday night. The events of the evening will be remembered for the rest of our lives. Thank you! Vicki and I have so many fond memories of the relationships/friendships we have developed with so many members of our HBAL family in the past 42 years. Our travels to numerous International Builders Shows, Remodeling Shows and NAHB Board of Directors Meetings all around this beautiful country of ours, are full of memories of fun times spent with other HBAL members we will never forget. As a builder, we get the credit for building a home for clients that meets or hopefully exceeds their expectations. But the credit really needs to be placed with the talents that each of our tradespeople and supply professionals bring to our team that help to make us look good. The same can be said for HBAL. Our staff is second to none and they help to make all of us look good through their professionalism, organizational skills and dedication to this association. Thank you Kayla, Jennie, Andrea, Laure (& dear Nadine)! I charge each and every member to become more involved in HBAL. Attend the meetings, volunteer when you can, put your name in the hat for the Board of Directors. I guarantee you will get so much more back than you put in! Had I not taken that step long ago to become more involved, this all would be a moot point. Our homebuilding and HBAL journey for Vicki and me has been an increditble one for us and I liken the award you presented us like a big hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and a cherry on top! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! Warmly, Jim & Vicki Christo 15  Lincoln Business Builder

Spike Awards Spike Awards are recognition for membership recruitment. Individuals such as these are the life blood of our organization.

Herm Hempel Award In 2017, we brought in 78 new members. Of these, eight of them were recruited by Denny Van Horn. Because of his efforts, Denny has earned the 2017 Herm Hempel Spike Award for most new members. It is great to have Denny involved with recruiting members to HBAL.

Ervin E. Peterson Founders Award The Ervin E. Peterson Founders Award is the retention spike of the year award. Mike Kinning earned this award in 2017 for retaining the most members.

DSC Employee of the Year The Development Services Center Employee of the Year Award went to Shawn Johnson who has been part of the Building & Safety Dept. for almost 15 years. In 2017, Shawn was promoted to Chief of the Plan Review Dept. He has done a great job in the past six months, implementing new procedures in Plan Review which has decreased wait time for building plans. Our builder members greatly appreciate his help in increasing efficiency.

Affiliate of the Year 2017 Affiliate of the Year winner, Tyler Reynolds, has been involved with HBAL for his entire life. He has attended almost every Home & Garden Show since birth and has missed HBAL's Santa Cop project only a couple of times. He worked for HBAL at the Home & Garden Show during his middle school, high school and college years, helping with any task assigned, including wearing costumes to walk around the Show. HBAL has always been an important part of his life. After landing a career in the industry, he knew he wanted to become even more involved and volunteered to serve as President of the Young Building Professionals Council in 2017.


Installation & Awards Ceremony

President’s Award

Each year the President is invited to identify an individual who stands out for their service to HBAL. Outgoing President, Matt Kleinschmit, chose Bob Bryant for this honor. Bob has been an HBAL member for over 30 years and is approaching 15 years of service on the Executive Committee. Matt said, "I would like to share my admiration to this person for his respect of our country, our community and most importantly for his family." Matt also shared this quote from Bob's son, Rob: "Everyone makes a difference in the world. Some people make a bigger difference than others. My dad is one of those people. My dad loves his family and shows it in the time he makes for all of us. My dad loves his work because he enjoys helping others and that’s what his job is. He is courageous by telling people what they might need to hear rather than what they want to hear. He is extremely selfless and has an amazing amount of integrity. He does things for the right reasons, not for money or notoriety. He has passed on a strong faith in God to his family. He is an amazing example of stewardship, giving so much of his time, talent and treasurer to others. The world is a better place for the way he leads his life."
