Is there a recession looming? Some experts think so, some disagree. Regardless of what you believe, we should all be prepared for changes in the economy and the remodeling industry. As a group of dedicated professionals, we should be prepared for a rainy day, or even a rainy season. By having back-up plans in place now, we can make it through anything stronger together.

Whether you are a sole proprietor or have a staff that helps with your business, being connected to HBAL and the Remodelers Council is one step in the right direction. We have a friendly group with lots to offer each other. The educational opportunities given by HBAL and their lobbying efforts are all executed with the wellness of our companies in mind. HBAL is also connected to other types of professionals such as bankers, insurance companies and accountants who understand the intricacies of remodeling. They are here for questions, policies and advice, recession or not.

Your fellow Remodeler Council members can also help! We are holding meetings, luncheons and events to build relationships within the industry. These same people you see each month can help each other weather the ups and downs of business. Just sharing your stories and experiences and listening to others let us know if we are on the right track or not.

Have you reached out to a fellow RC member? I encourage you to go to coffee, catch up on the small talk and see what you can learn by collaborating with another member.
