October Message from Executive Officer, Rusty Appleton

The final months of 2018 have been and will continue to be some of the busiest for the COHBA staff in my tenure. I am so thankful for our staff and dedicated members who care deeply for our association and donate so much of their time and energy to make our initiatives successful.

We recently wrapped up the 73rd annual Fall Parade, and by most accounts, traffic and sales were good.

Also, we closed out our membership drive at the end of September. We partnered with NAHB through their Membership 360 program, and brought in over 60 new members!

As we move through October, we will begin our newest event: The Street of Dreams. I know our featured builders have been working overtime to put on an outstanding show. Our event director, Elisa Milbourn, has also done an amazing job laying the groundwork for what should be an event that will knock everyone’s socks off.

Lastly, be on the lookout for information about our 75th Anniversary Celebration on December 7. We need you to help make it a success. Several special guests including NAHB Chairman, Randy Noel, will join us. Sponsorships are available, so please contact Kathy Holman at (405) 843-1508 for further details.

As always, thank you for allowing me to serve this association. I look forward to playing a part in ensuring the next 75 years for COHBA are even more successful than the last.
