Our Strength as an Organization Comes From Our Diversity as a Group. and celebrating when members renew. If you are curious about what a Spike is, I’d be happy to visit with you, and so will anyone on the Membership Retention committee.



Karen McClennen n my last article I discussed our focus and goals for 2018. Here is an update on what we’ve been working on to achieve those goals.

MEMBERSHIP – John Erwin, with John Erwin Remodeling, Inc., our Membership Chair, and his committee, has a goal of ending 2018 with 500 members. As a recruitment incentive, the Membership committee brought back the hugely popular membership trips for top recruiters. In the past, these trips have been a TON of fun and are a fantastic opportunity to engage with fellow members (see page 3 for more information). In addition, the Membership committee has been tasked with developing a marketing strategy on “Why you should join OMB,” which I hear will include our Executive Officer, Angela White, popping into member’s places of business, to spotlight members in videos. You too could be an OMB Star! MEMBERSHIP RETENTION – Linda Mosier-Vaudt, our Spike Chair, and her committee, has an on-going 2018 goal of 80% retention rate. In an effort to retain our current members the committee will be focusing on educating members on why they should continue their membership with OMB. They will also be working on sharing what a Spike is 4 • Chalk Line

ASSOCIATES COUNCIL – Chair Becky Rieger, with Environmental Design, LLC., and Rusty Ruiz, with Hung Right Doors LLC., have been hard at work developing an Ambassadors Program to welcome new members. They hosted their first 2018 New Member Orientation on February 16th at the OMB office. They had a great turn out! Thank you Rusty for providing lunch! If you missed this one – they have three more planned for the year. REMODELERS COUNCIL – Chair Chris McDonald, with Lifespan Construction, has ROCKED at energizing the council. The 1st meeting of the year was standing room only! Under Chris’ leadership, the group will have six larger meetings focused on sharing industry information and six smaller meetings for planning and work groups. (See page 11 for more information) THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING COUNCIL (TAHC) is the political action arm of OMB. Steve Gilmore, with Republic Services, has signed on as OMB’s TAHC Chair and has accepted my challenge to work on educating OMB members on the TAHC's mission. The TAHC is focused on electing candidates that believe in housing affordability, economic development and supporting business. The TAHC is all about issue-based advocacy, securing more funding, recruiting more TAHC trustees and developing broader, long term visions and goals. BOARD OF DIRECTORS – Thank you to all returning board members (listed on page 3) and a special welcome to new board members: Matt Jones with

January 2018 Government Affairs Meeting Sunset Air, Inc., Scottiejo McNulty with Elite Cleaning of Washington, Amy Winters with CW Construction, Inc., Tommy Lowe with Greene Realty, and Barb Whitlow with Olympia Federal Savings. This year’s board spent Saturday, February 10 at Alderbrook Inn at a board leadership retreat. Our focus was on coming together as a board, learning more about our communication styles, board roles and responsibilities and how board members want to engage in 2018. Overwhelmingly, the entire group joined in with enthusiasm to support our key goal of membership throughout the year. Thank you all for your commitment to OMB! Although I just touched on a few committees and councils, I am thrilled to share that all our local chapters and committees are hard at work, along with our dedicated staff, in making things happen for you – our members! It is my continued belief that our strength as an organization comes from our diversity as a group and our combined focus and voice. When our membership numbers grow – so does our voice – on issues that matter to us and our industry. Please join me in sharing our successes with your business friends and why THEY should be members of Olympia Master Builders.

For the 3rd year, Bloodworks NW will be onsite with a Blood Mobile on Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm where anyone can donate to help other members in our community.

A big thank you to our main event sponsors Olympia Overhead Doors and Lincoln Creek Lumber for making the Home and Garden Show possible.


Committed to a renewed focus on retention. by long time OMB member Linda Mosier-Vaudt. The committee has branched from the Membership Committee and is fully engaged in connecting with members with the goal of retention.



n Association can have a great member recruitment program, but it means very little if those members are not rejoining at the end of their term. In 2017 and into 2018, OMB leadership and staff have committed to a renewed focus on retention. Already, we have seen those efforts pay off and I am happy to report our retention rate has risen dramatically, with a 2017 year-end net gain of 31 members. As you read in President Karen McClennen’s column, the Spike Committee, the committee responsible for member retention, is being led

One of the biggest reasons we hear from people deciding not to rejoin Olympia Master Builders is, “I didn’t get anything out of it.” Long-time members and staff here at OMB always follow that with the question, “How did you get involved?” Most of the time the answer to that question is something along the lines of, "I didn’t have time, so I didn’t attend anything or sign up for benefits." Knowing that the key to retention is making sure members are engaged in one way or another, the Spike Committee, the Associates Council’s new ambassador program, OMB leadership and OMB staff are focused on making sure members are, first and foremost, informed of the benefits, and are taking advantage of the programs, events and activities that will help them build their business. The effort will be much more than a onetime email or phone call when a member first joins, but instead a CONTINU-

AL effort to make sure new members are utilizing their membership! OMB has a broad and varied membership who have differing business needs, but everyone comes together for the primary focus of providing affordable housing for all economic segments of society. With that in mind, engagement with OMB can look many different ways, depending on the individual member. It can be as simple as participating in the health insurance program or the Return on Industrial Insurance Select Program. It can be networking and sponsoring to build company brand awareness. It can be utilizing other members as business mentors. And it can be getting involved with the Government Affairs, TAHC, or any number of committees. With this, a big part of the retention strategy is continually focusing on making sure the benefits provided are strong and useful. If you have interest in getting involved in the Spike Committee, reach out to Jenni Hatfield, OMB’s Membership Coordinator at jenni@omb. org or (360) 754-0912, or myself at

and all its benefits!

What is Olympia Master Builders?

Why Become a Member of Olympia Master Builders?

Olympia Master Builders (OMB) is a professional trade association representing companies located in Thurston, Lewis, Grays Harbor, Mason and Pacific Counties. Members come from all sectors of the building trades including home builders, remodelers, bankers, plumbers, electricians and attorneys.

Leah Backus, from Olympia Federal Savings, says “As members of OMB, we are able to connect and collaborate with our area’s most reputable and professional builders and craftsmen, in helping develop our community in sustainable and meaningful ways that improve the quality of life for everyone.” OMB membership is about connections and collaboration with one another, as well as with the public. OMB members work tirelessly to create, plan and execute amazing public events like the annual Big Home and Garden Show and the Tour of Homes™. Both events allow opportunities for the public to explore the ins and outs of our region’s finest builders, sub-contractors and associates, meet their teams, and ask questions about personal upcoming plans and projects. OMB also provides a community service through an online searchable database at and a printed membership directory. Both are a handy tool for the public to easily find members for hire in the industry.

OMB’s primary goal is to provide affordable housing for all economic segments of society. This is achieved by improving the construction industry and the business climate in which our members operate. This is done by providing a voice before government, developing a professional building industry with educational and training classes, and by promoting and marketing our member services to the community.

Who is Olympia Master Builders? Olympia Master Builder members come from all sectors of the building trades spanning over five counties. The membership is founded on, and continues to grow from, a diverse group of business owners and representatives - from established large corporations to startup mom and pop shops who all unite to support the one cause of housing affordability. OMB has over 450 active members, and outside of the main focus of housing affordability, each one has their own specific reasons for joining and staying committed. 8 • Chalk Line

One of the biggest benefits of OMB membership is the Government Affairs Program, which is an effective political advocacy program in the cit-

ies and counties within OMB’s five county territory. OMB monitors regulatory changes such as permit fees, codes, zoning, planning, administrative reviews, procedures and policies, and advocates on behalf of the membership. Scott Bergford of Scott Homes states, “I value the involvement OMB expends, ensuring our industry has a voice for the proposed changes to regulations in each of the various building entities in our area.” These efforts have direct effects on the success of its industry members and the cost of housing. OMB members also benefit greatly through networking and educating one another in more of a hands-on environment. Members have the chance to learn from their peers on how to network, create business plans, run effec-

tive meetings, and grow in leadership roles. And the list goes on! “What we love most about OMB (membership) is the Remodelers Council and the willingness of that group to share information with likeminded business owners,” says Amy and Chris Winters of CW Construction. OMB also offers members regular certification and education courses throughout the year such as First Aid and CPR, Residential Fall Protection, EPA Certified Lead Renovator and Project Management, to name a few. And, because of the Olympia Master Builders Association, many of the local businesses have options to participate in internal benefits like the R.O.I.I.® (Return on Industrial Insurance) Select - which is a performance-based retrospective rating group that provides refunds when participants’ workers’ compensation premiums exceed their

losses - and the BIAW Health Insurance Program, which is a non-profit, multiple employer, benefit program. In addition to member-to-member benefits, there are also member discounts and savings opportunities with many top companies such as: Lowe’s ProServices, GM, UPS, DELL, and Office Depot. As you can see, Olympia Master Builders’ members and staff work diligently to support the local building industry, to provide affordable housing for all economic segment of society and to provide the community with connections and resources within the field. Olympia Master Builders’ history of success is purely based on their active and committed membership. And membership definitely has its benefits! For more information about the Olympia Master Builders or how to apply for membership, please visit or call (360) 754-0912.

COUNCIL The Remodelers Council of OMB is growing and wants YOU! The OMB Remodelers Council serves and promotes the remodeling industry by offering its members information, education, networking opportunities for the exchange of ideas, and recognition programs for quality craftsmanship. And the membership is growing! The next Remodelers Council meeting will be held March 14, 2018 at 3:45PM at OMB. The speaker will be John Erwin of John Erwin Remodeling, who will be leading an ‘Estimating and Mark Ups’ round table discussion. You don’t have to be a remodeler to join - ALL OMB members are welcome! We are also looking for location hosts and food and beverage event sponsors for our meetings. Event hosts and sponsors have a chance to present an overview of their business to the council and network with members. Dues for the Remodelers Council are $85 a year. If you would like more information about the Remodelers Council or would like to volunteer to host or sponsor a council meeting, contact Erin Hall at or 360754-0912.
