Members representing 55 local home building. supply companies, and insurance and financial institutions gathered at the Phoenix Expo May 2nd, for the monthly meeting of the Association membership. Our special guest was the 2013 President of the Arkansas Home Builders Association, Darlene Strough, from Berryville. Ms. Strough presented her perspective on the recently completed regular session of the Arkansas General Assembly as it related to legislation that could have adversely affected the home building industry. Several pieces of legislation were modified or defeated through the efforts of AHBA leadership and lobbyists. The President also discussed ramifications of the proposed adoption of the 2009 Arkansas Energy Codes, as it related to affordability for today's home buyers. The Association will begin meeting at Fianna Hills Country Club for monthly noon meetings beginning June 6th. This is the result of the recent sale of the Phoenix Expo.
