President’s Message

(Continued)

Our members are the reason our associations exist. Like many of you I only take part of a handful of the benefits offered to me and my company because I’m unaware of all that is available to me. I believe the HBASC needs to focus on sharing the multitude of benefits available to them while we continue to social distance. I’ve asked that this issue of the S. C. Builder Journal highlight some of the benefits offered to our members to highlight the return on investment your membership could and should be participating in.

While we enjoy in all the benefits the local, state and national associations offer I also believe we must ask a question as a member. What have I done to become more involved in my local association? There is a point in time when you stop asking “what is in it for me,” and start asking what you can do for your industry. This is your trade, your livelihood, your state and your home. What could you do to help the construction industry and HBA preserve and protect it? This is a member driven trade association and our continued path of prosperity rests on all members. Not just the few. Be involved and be part of the solution. SCBJ
