Spring has arrived and with it comes three important things to put on your to do list.

First, please mark your calendar to VOTE in the primary election on April 4. Members of HOMEPAC met and interviewed the three Mayoral candidates and individuals running for City Council seats. HOMEPAC is our political action committee which works to support local candidates who share our concerns about the importance of housing in our community and to limit increased regulation which impacts our industry. Through these interviews, the HOMEPAC members identified which candidates it would endorse or offer support (see page 6). We ask you to please consider supporting these candidates in the upcoming election, but above all please take the time to VOTE.

Second, help us support the young people who are interested in our industry at the Tribute to Youth meeting on April 4 at the Country Club of Lincoln. We will recognize our scholarship recipients and the winners of this year’s Interior & Residential CAD Design contest.

Finally, please consider supporting your fellow members by spreading the word and attending the Tour of Remodeled Homes April 29-30. Also, we are still looking for a few more volunteers for the Cruisin’ for the Trades Car Show coming up on May 6. It’s our active membership and support of each other which keeps HBAL strong.
