HBA Advocacy Update

NDAB board meeting and summer social

In July, a few HBA members went to Williston, N.D., for the North Dakota Association of Builders' board meeting and summer social! In addition to other attendees from around North Dakota, they were joined by Carl Harris, 1st vice president of the National Association of Home Builders. 

NAHB's Carl Harris, fourth from left; Tom Spaeth, Accent Contracting, sixth from left; Don Dabbert, Jr., Dabbert Custom Homes, seventh from left. 

We always appreciate opportunities to come together as a state to discuss issues impacting our industry! 

Building Industry Connect recap

Last week we were joined by Adam Martin, CEO and Founder of F5 Project to learn more about the impact they're having in our community. F5 assists people that are struggling with incarceration and addiction by providing resources for recovery, housing and employment. We also discussed ways we can collaborate to address our region's housing and workforce issues.


Bryce Johnson, HBA and Adam Martin, F5 Project

Thank you to everyone that came!
