Back to the Basics

At our first Associates Council Luncheon on February 23rd we had a great attendance. Thank you to our Educational Committee, Vanessa Shadix, Jan Conway, Jennifer Fields and Gina Cox who are working to bring more informational speakers to our luncheons. Thank you to Amie Trautman, Compliance Officer, Rich Meyers, Appraiser and Michele Henke, with Prime Bank for being our guest speakers and apprising everyone on the new rules and regulations on the appraisal process.

We are “Back to the Basics” for our Table Top Showcase!

The Council and the Committee has been hard at work with budgeting and scheduling of events with so much energy for the Associates Council, that on this Thursday morning of March 10th we have sold all 30 of our tables on the special sign-up day with several more on a waiting list. As your team leader for the Associates Council I am equally excited about our table top being held in our own banquet facility and Jan Conway spearheading this as Chair along with the committee of Gina Cox, Christy Mann and myself.

This event is a one night networking mini trade show open to members (only) of the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association and complimentary for all builder members. You have the opportunity to connect with various other members by putting your networking skills together by having fun, food and beverages.
