How does it feel when your project finally gets stamped as completed and your clients can enjoy their beautiful new or newly remodeled home? That sense of relief and accomplishment means a lot to the morale of a company and its team. HBA Staff is looking for new ways to communicate all that we as an Association experience and accomplish in a month's time.
As a result, the last Friday of each month will bring a new e-blast that we are calling "The C.O." to represent the completion of a large project that really is a lot of small pieces accomplished by a wide variety of contributors. Join us throughout the rest of 2018 with your comments, suggestions and even your own accomplishments throughout the previous month. Submissions can be made to email@example.com prior to the last Friday of the month.
The before and after photos of HBA Member Savannah Blinds Shutters and Shades new showroom are truly remarkable. A great job done by the
team at Savannah Blinds Shutters and Shades along with their interior design partner, Autumn Kirk of The Curated Life.
The goal of the HBA is to build relationships between building industry businesses just like Savannah Blinds Shutters and Shades and
The Curated Life along with members of the community, public officials and more through advocacy, education, networking and beyond.
These partnerships are much like the Savannah Blinds Shutters and Shades showroom before and after its renovation, transformative for your
business. Feel free to share your own recent transformative experience that has helped shape your business by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org today!

the tax multiplier until oral arguments can be heard.
NAHB members from throughout the United States attended a briefing with Vice President Mike Pence during time in Washington D.C. Members expressed concerns regarding softwood lumber and aluminum/steel tariffs but praised leadership for their role in tax reform.
The HBA Executive Committee met with SC State Legislature incumbent Jeff Bradley to present him with an endorsement from the Home Builders Association. As a friend of the building industry, we wish Representative Bradley the best in his reelection.
