Annual Installation and Recognition Reception

It was an evening of surprise entertainment, historical board inductee, and well deserved member recognition.

Christina Presley was installed as the first ever woman President of the HBA.  Chris shared her vision of the future.  “If we build it, they will come…” will be 2015’s recurring theme – building a more robust and profitable member base by offering more value to each member via advocacy, networking and educational support and opportunities.  Chris discussed improving and expanding communication channels, building the HBA brand and becoming the reliable and credible source for new-build or home remodeling information, an emphasis on combatting the labor shortage, and chartering a new Professional Women in Building Council within the HBA of Metro Denver. 
In addition to Chris Presley, President, the 2015 Senior Officers are Craig Campbell, President Elect; Karl Knapp, Vice President/Treasurer; Cheryl Schuette, Vice President/Secretary; Angela Harris, Council Board Chair; and Kurt Winfield, President of the Home Builders Foundation.
