| A Message from the WCBA|
President, Dirk Wildt
I hope that everyone is enjoying summer with vacations in full flurry and hopefully construction activities as well. I do believe that we are seeing stronger buyer activity with an elevated consumer confidence that will start to equate to increased productivity for everyone in the building trades. And without a doubt I am sure that we all will agree it is about time.
The WCBA Tour of homes is now in full swing and as one of the participants I am personally inspired and very pleased with the response and the turnout from potential clients throughout the Tour. People are out there looking and inquiring, which is a good sign for all.
Wishing you all the best in your respective trades.
