President, Dirk Wildt


Hopefully all our member builders and related businesses are fully entrenched in construction activity now that summer is finally upon us.   Most indicators showed that we had a delay in consumer interest with the long winter but things are now starting to rebound in new construction.


It certainly was great to see new faces at the June 12th general meeting held at The Copper Dock.  Great food and networking opportunities were enjoyed by all that attended.  Besides good food and conversation we also learned about the proper usage of LinkedIn from Sue Gresham and how to optimize your profile. 


Have a great summer and see you at the next general meeting on September 11th.
