The HBAT Annual Fall Meeting was a huge success. Our committees convened during the 2 day conference to discuss important issues affecting the home building industry. Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell spoke to our members during one of the lunch sessions. We were honored to have her address the group & thank her for taking time out of her schedule to speak with the home builders. The final day of the conference was a very special day for our leaders. NAHB Vice Chairman Randy Noel installed our new officers Ethan Collier elected as Vice President/Secretary, Jimmy Franks elected as Vice President/Treasurer and Peaches Searles elected as Associate Vice President. HBAT Past President David Parsons was inducted into the Tennessee Building Industry Hall of Fame. Congratulations to Charlotte Peak who was voted Builder of the Year and John Proffitt selected as Associate of the Year. Lastly, thanks to the current HBAT President Dennis Epperson for a job well done in leading the association. A special thank you to our Banquet sponsors Cenwood Appliance/Samsung, Thrifty Building Building Materials, Cordova Concrete and The Bank of Fayette County for making Mack Andrews Banquet a night to remember. A great night was had by all. Looking forward to the next meeting schedule for February 26, 2018 at the Hilton Nashville Downtown. Registration is now open for the Legislative Meeting.
