Kirk Van Pelt of the Nebraska Safety Council presented “Distracted Driving is the New Impaired Driving” at the November Remodelers Council Meeting. According to statistics, drivers are 23x more likely to be involved in a motor vehicle crash while texting and driving. The presentation reminded us that our driving choices not only affect us, but will also affect our coworkers, family and friends.

The meeting also included a Remodelers 101 presentation by our 2023 officers. This is an opportunity to share what the Remodelers Council does throughout the year with new and potential members. We also had our election of officers. Special thanks to Jason Willet (Chairperson), Matt Firestone (Vice Chairperson) and Megan Dreyer (Secretary) for volunteering to serve in 2024!
