The Association Excellence Awards is an annual program designed to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of state and local home builders’ associations and executive officers in the field of association management. EOC membership is comprised of the staff executives who direct more than 750 NAHB-affiliated state and local home builders’ associations representing more than 140,000 home builders in communities across the United States.
“The Association Excellence Awards recognize the outstanding effort, commitment and achievement an executive officer and an association’s membership have made,” said Chuck Kavanaugh, president of the EOC and executive officer of the Home Builders Association of Louisville, Ky. ”These awards are well deserved and represent a true showcase of the outstanding work of home builders’ associations around the country.”
“It is truly an honor for the hard work and professionalism of the HBAMP staff and member volunteers to be recognized with these Association Excellence Awards,” said Gordon Root, HBAMP President. “I applaud their dedication to representing all of our members and industry while helping preserve the American Dream of homeownership for our community.”
The winning entries will become part of the online EOC Idea Loan File so that other executives and associations across the country can access and learn from them in order to provide better service to their own members and community.
