BUILDERS OVERVIEW - Spokane Home Builders Association

WE MADE IT THROUGH THE HARD TIMES AND ARE PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE The past year seems like a blur given the daily challenges we have faced as a result of the COVID pandemic. In spite of the challenges, I feel extremely fortunate that my staff and Association leadership remained healthy throughout the year and we were able to keep the Association moving forward to support our members. While everyone has handled the regulations and risks differently, I have been coming into the office daily following the initial lockdown. In the early days we were in regular contact with all of our local, state and national elected officials and encouraged them to put pressure on the Governor to allow our members to get back to work. I felt extremely fortunate to have the additional support of BIAW and our state

Executive Officer, Greg Lane, as they took the lead and were able to get the residential building industry back to work 6 weeks earlier than other industries. I also recall how great it was to deliver record ROII refund checks to our members at the end of May. In all, over 400 SHBA member companies throughout our 7-county territory shared refunds totaling $4,856,048.46. This was the largest pooled amount we have ever distributed and it came at a great time for our members as they were dealing with the financial impacts of COVID-19. Even after our members went back to work they still faced numerous challenges with skyrocketing lumber prices and permitting/platting delays

at our local building & planning departments. While neither challenge is fully resolved at this time, we are seeing declining lumber prices due to pressure from NAHB and the support of Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers. We have been speaking regularly with our County Commissioners, the Mayor continued on page 5

The Association was limited by the social distancing requirements of COVID and we were unable to hold many of the networking events our members love. In place of in person events, we utilized the time to launch a new SHBA website and held numerous committee and education Zoom meetings with our members. We were also able to hold a very successful virtual Fall Festival of Homes with thousands of online visitors touring the amazing homes built by our members. While I would have preferred the year we had originally planned for, I am confident the challenges we faced this past year will make the Association stronger going forward.

BUILDERS OVERVIEW - Spokane Home Builders Association

ADVERSITY CREATED CLARITY - ADVOCACY FOR OUR MEMBER IS OUR FOCUS It’s funny looking back at the beginning of the year and believing that my biggest challenge as the SHBA President in 2020 would be speaking at events. Regrettably, the Governor’s shutdown forced us to cancel nearly all of our events and I wasn’t able to utilize the techniques I had learned at a Spokesperson Training Session I participated in at the IBS. In spite of the limitations on in-person events, I am very proud of the positive actions we took to support our members throughout the year. • Helped our members navigate new COVID jobsite safety rules in partnership with the leadership of BIAW and NAHB • Launched a new logo, website and branding campaign to outwardly promote the SHBA • Held a virtual Fall Festival of Homes that was well received by the public and generated a number of home sales. Most importantly, we maintained our focus on political and legislative advocacy for our members. This was my key priority and I was fortunate to have the backing of my company to support these efforts. We know that fighting back on regulation that drives up the cost of housing allows more potential homebuyers to purchase new homes. Here is a sample of some of the actions we took on your behalf this past year. • Our Government Affairs committee leadership and staff worked vigorously to secure the support of local elected officials to pressure the Governor to reverse his initial decision and allow the residential construction industry back to work weeks earlier than other industries. • We lobbied the State Building Codes Council to postpone the costly implementation of the 2018 energy codes and saw them delayed from July 1st of this year to February 1st of 2021. • Responded to the spike in lumber prices by working alongside NAHB and Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers to campaign for the increased domestic harvest of lumber and mill opening. We have already seen a steady decline in pricing since the price peak in September. • Our members faced significant delays in building permit and land use applications processing post COVID. We had numerous conversations with building/planning department staff and elected leaders to show them the impact the delays were creating. It appears those discussions were fruitful as changes are in process to shorten the timelines. • We were active supporters of candidates in the recent election who were strong advocates of limiting unnecessary regulations that impede the ability of our members to provide attainable housing options in our community. We generated great financial support from our members and were able to make generous campaign contributions to our endorsed candidates and saw all but one elected. While my time as President is ending, I am excited to continue working to grow the Association and our advocacy efforts. I have gained a new set of skills and understanding of the challenges future Association leaders will face and want to make sure that is carried forward to future leaders. I want to close by saying how grateful I am to have met and worked with so many of my fellow members this past year in spite of the limitations of the pandemic. I was very fortunate to have the support of many talented and generous volunteers and want to thank them for volunteering their time, talents and treasure to move the SHBA forward. I would encourage all of our members to get involved like I did as you can make a difference in the industry while also making long-term relationship and personal/business benefits.

BEN MCGERTY 2020 President

BUILDERS OVERVIEW - Spokane Home Builders Association

WHERE WE’VE BEEN 2020 was a year no one saw coming. From the COVID-19 pandemic to economic and social fallout, it certainly seems like a decade’s worth of challenges were packed into one year. Specifically for the home building industry, we saw a sector-wide shutdown followed by supply chain issues, a lumber price spike, a labor shortage, building permit delays and more. During this time the association was critical. From advocating on important issues to sharing information, challenges, and solutions with each other and learning how to adapt to new administrative and job site realities, our industry came together, and each were stronger for it. The SHBA and BIAW got to work immediately after the March shut down to get our industry back to work before any other. As material costs rose, we worked with Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers and through the NAHB to encourage incentives for the timber industry to increase production. And we continue to work with local jurisdictions to increase efficiency in building permits despite an increase in the number of permits and the challenges of working remotely. Whatever the impediment, our association exists to provide solutions so you can focus on what you do best: building Spokane, one home at a time.

GET INVOLVED Along with its challenges, this year has provided an opportunity to rethink why we do what we do as an association and clarify the mission and expectations for each department. In our advocacy efforts, that breaks down into two primary committees: Government Affairs and Political Action. In Government Affairs the mission is to coordinate government affairs activities and programs in order to execute public policy goals and objectives of the Association. The Political Action Committee exists to encourage member participation in local elections and support pro-housing candidates for elected office that best represent the positions of our Association. In order to achieve our policy objectives, the Government Affairs Committee seeks to build relationships with elected officials, testify at board, committee, and council meetings, promote our legislative priorities, and education ourselves and the public on the issues facing our community. As we look ahead to 2021, we anticipate a renewed rhythm of forums held by the committee and a commitment to actively engage in discussions on attainable housing economic development. The complimentary approach to advocating to our elected officials is helping get pro-housing candidates elected to those positions of influence. Through the Political Action Committee, the SHBA seeks to identify, recruit, train, and financially support candidates for elected office. With important municipal races in 2021 and new Spokane Commissioner Districts in 2022, along with the statewide redistricting process in 2021, there are many opportunities to make our voices heard. If you are interested in joining one of these committees, or even if you just want to learn more, please don’t hesitate to contact Government Affairs Director Isaiah Paine, at isaihp@shba.com. Also, join us in congratulating incoming 2021 chairs Jim Warner of Solid Structures and Corey Condron of Condron Homes of the Government Affairs and Political Action Committees, respectively. Also, our thanks to Alan Nolan of 509 Designs for his diligent work as the Government Affairs chair these past two years.

BUILDERS OVERVIEW - Spokane Home Builders Association

REBUILDING YOUR BUSINESS IN A CHALLENGING YEAR A Guide for Those in the Business of Building To say 2020 has been a year of unprecedented challenge would be an understatement. Unlike a natural disaster where an event occurs and businesses and communities then start to rebuild, this year has brought ongoing uncertainty. Some business owners have to keep their companies afloat, seek emergency funding and make sense of shifting guidelines for operating. Others, such as residential home builders in the Pacific Northwest, are managing to successfully weather the storm through the

current COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re a builder, you may be among those working through the challenges or finding new challenges such as labor shortages, cost increases, or locating affordable land, and hopefully finding a new path for success. As a banker, I naturally view this from a financial perspective and offer these ideas to help you move forward and succeed: Surround yourself with experts you trust – From your accountant and attorney to your marketing representatives, banker can help you evaluate your financials, and offer tips to improve cash flow. They’ll work with you to determine

the best financing solutions, if needed, to help shore up or jump-start your business.

your advisors should be knowledgeable and as passionate about your company’s success as you are. An experienced

Assess your situation – Take stock of your business. Update your financials—especially your profit and loss statement and balance sheet—if you haven’t already, and compare the numbers to last year’s. Review your debt, and partner with your banker to assess your need for financing, which may hinge on several factors. Debt is a normal part of business and can help your company grow, as long as it’s in balance. Evaluate your industry, your competition and the market you serve. Consider how your customers’ needs and priorities have changed. Be honest in assessing your company’s strengths, weaknesses and projected earnings in order to evaluate and manage your company moving forward into 2021. Revisit your business plan and goals – You may have already adjusted your business model to survive some of the toughest times by redefining your target audience or realigning your project mix. Chances are, you’ve incorporated new ways to interact with clients and keep them and your employees safe. As you update your goals, determine if you have the resources to implement them. Rebuild your budgets – Your income may have increased, but construction costs continue to rise and other expenses have remained fixed or even grown. Now that you’ve analyzed your financials and determined a desired course, you’ll want a clear idea of how to manage those increasing costs in order to maintain adequate operating margins. Set a timeline – Be realistic as you prioritize your goals. If you want to hire more employees, purchase equipment or expand your service area, you’ll likely need to do it in phases. If you need to pay down debt, talk with your creditors and do it according to plan. Always be planning – Having a working guide helps you prepare for economic highs and lows, and easily change course. Given the lessons of 2020, you may aim to cut expenses and build reserves. Or, depending on the life stage of your business, you may look at succession planning. Ideally, your plan will include strategies for various scenarios, including pandemics. As you rebuild, count on your hand-chosen advisors for guidance. Expect your financial partners to deliver exceptional service—you deserve it. In addition to being a source of financing, your banker should understand your needs and routinely offer ideas to streamline the financial aspects of your business. That includes collaborating with other members of your team and specialists at the bank in areas such as treasury management and merchant services. It’s a partnership that should support your success on the road ahead. Ron Soss is a Banner Bank Vice President and Commercial Real Estate Market Manager serving the greater-Spokane region.

BUILDERS OVERVIEW - Spokane Home Builders Association

SHBA NEXT: THE SPOKANE HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION’S YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COUNCIL We seek to encourage other young professionals to get involved and help continue the proud tradition of our association. We have a group of young professionals on the SHBA Next Council that are excited to get 2021 off to a great start! Our purpose to identify other young professionals within our industry that want to grow both professionally and personally. We do this by showcasing these YP’s at our events. We offer them opportunities to step up and be the future leaders our association needs by hosting events (mostly free) that are sponsored by these young YP’s, or the companies they work for. This allows them ample opportunity to speak about who they are and what they do. We are the familiar platform that helps to push these young professionals to their max potential. I joined SHBA Next in January 2019 and quickly rose to the top of the pack as I threw myself into planning events. I had never met a more diversified group of young people. I felt like I could relate to this group. I felt I could grow with this group. This group embraced me as one of their own. I’m not going to lie; I had to work my tail off! Being a young professional isn’t easy, especially as a woman in the construction industry. I felt like I needed something to set myself apart from the norm. I became the secretary of the Council. Sure, scribing notes is easy, but MC’ing a major event in front of your peers? Not so easy. But I did it, and I loved it! I volunteered to MC the Fall Festival of Homes Kick-Off Night. My company was the signature sponsor, so what better way to show who I was than to run the event ?! With a table of CoWorkers and a roomful of spectators, I conquered my huge fear of public speaking. I’d never spoken in front of a group that large before. I was sought out later for the 2020 Launch Party…. sought out! Can you imagine how that made me feel? I was somebody people heard about. I am now somebody people KNOW. If you are a young professional looking for a place to belong, SHBA Next is the perfect place to start. We are here to help your intro into the Spokane Home Builders Association easy. We have so many different YP’s with different backgrounds that will surely align with your interests. If SHBA Next isn’t your cup-of-tea, we are more than happy to help you find what is.
