Spring Forward!

We had our first Grand Opening Planning Committee meeting last week.  We are very excited to have this “grand” event but want to make sure we do it right.  We discussed everything from invitations, food, and ribbon cutting to decorating the men’s restroom with COHBA memorabilia.  You would have to be part of this committee to get that.  Wow!  Overall, a great meeting with a lot of great ideas.  We have decided that it will be best to move this event back one month.  The date for our Grand Opening Gala is officially Thursday, May 12, 2011.  Please mark your calendars now and plan to join us for this special event.

I received an e-mail this last week stating that our By-Law revisions (that were started a year ago) have been approved by legal counsel.  This means that board members can expect to receive a copy of these proposed changes this week via e-mail.  The board will review and vote on the changes at our next board meeting, Wednesday, March 23rd.  From there, the proposed changes will go to our next general membership meeting which is scheduled for Thursday, April 7, for final voting by all builder members present.  I would like to thank the By-Law review committee again for their dedication to seeing this process thru!

This looks like it will be a good week to get some homes built, if you’re not on spring break.  Whether you are somewhere tropical or right here in good-ole Oklahoma be sure to mark your calendars for the many events we have scheduled in the coming weeks, including the OSHBA Capitol Day on Tuesday March 22nd, Exec and Board on the 23rd, Presidents Reception on Monday the 28th (come with your new member), and our City Officials Luncheon on Wednesday the 30th. 

Enjoy your extra hour of daylight!
