Notice for the 2014 Annual Meeting and the Election of the Board of Directors


The Washington County Builders Association has been very fortunate to have a great group of people who volunteer their time for the benefit of all members.  This group, namely the Board of Directors, throughout the year solicits other members to join in and become more involved.


According the recent and unanimously approved Bylaw changes, members of the Association are to elect at the Annual Meeting in February the Board of Directors for the following year's term commencing in March.   If you are considering or have a question about these Board positions I urge you to call me so that I may answer any questions you may have about these positions and have your name placed on the ballot before the Annual meeting scheduled for February 14th at 8pm after the Home Building and Remodeling EXPO at the Washington County Fairgrounds Pavilion.


Also on the agenda In addition to the election there will be short talk about the Associations goals for 2014 and an open session to answer any questions you may have relevant to the Association.  As usual, for all members and exhibitors that attend we will have a buffet compliment of the Association along with this years open bar sponsored by WCBA member, A-1 Pools.


See you at the meeting!
