BUILDERS BUZZ by Nick Green, President
I know everyone is busy with the summer building season, and I hope everyone's projects go well. Right now as I write this, I'm a guest speaker for the Entrepreneur Boot Camp for Veterans at Syracuse University in New York. So I'm cramming this into my busy schedule to give back to my fellow Veterans. The Ranger book "Violence of Action" by Marty Skovlund I contributed to, has finally been given clearance to be published after a recent delay to review operational security concerns. I will have copies at my shop as soon as it’s published. The next BAM meeting is August 20th in St. Cloud, so I will be there to ensure we have a voice for our region on the State level issues of our trade. Everyone enjoy your summer!
MY VIEW by Brenda Eidenschink
I hope everyone is having a good summer; busy with work and some time to play. Kind of quiet here at the Builders’ office for right now, but we are working on putting together a continuing education class for the plumbers on Nov 21st. Once we get the final details, we will get the registration forms mailed out.
We are working on lining up the instructors for the Builder’s continuing education class. Please keep us in mind when you are preparing to take your continuing education classes.
Enjoy the summer and all it has to offer! Read More...
FROM THE EDITOR by Sharon Westerholm
As Brenda said, summer is zipping by all too fast. We are working on the Home Show, getting our lists and mailers ready. Watch for them, so you can book in your spots. Members and those from last year get the first round of mailers, then about a week later we will mail out the rest of our prospects. Brenda is working on another speaker for a good draw of people. Last year’s Food Networks speaker brought in more people. We are going to try and find a speaker for the Sport Show side to bring in more men. Read More...
