- Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati Wins Award for Best Council Development Program (“Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee”)
Posted May 13, 2022
Cincinnati, OH – The Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati has been recognized for its outstanding Best Council Development Program (“Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee”) with an Award of Excellence from the Executive Officers Council (EOC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
“We are truly honored to be recognized for the work completed but we know there is still so much more we can accomplish by changing the conversation and breaking down the barriers that prevent progress,” said Dave Stroup, President. “This award not only reflects the passion of our leadership and DEI Committee to create an inclusive environment; it also demonstrates our ability to harness that passion and drive positive change among our Association, in the residential construction industry and perhaps most importantly, our community as a whole.”
To realize the importance of diversification for the future growth of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati and the residential construction workforce in our region, requires a long-term strategy. Our leadership and the dedicated members of our DEI Committee are committed to this long-term cause and recognize that it takes intentional and ongoing effort to overcome barriers and create a culture that promotes and values diversity, equity and inclusion.
The Association Excellence Awards is an annual program designed to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of state and local home builders’ associations and executive officers in the field of association management. EOC membership is comprised of the staff executives who direct more than 650 NAHB-affiliated state and local home builders’ associations representing more than 140,000 home builders in communities across the United States.
“It never ceases to amaze the work product that is created by local and state HBA’s throughout our NAHB federation. The shear cumulative effort embodied by all that submitted for AEA awards is beyond impressive,” said Brian Miller, EOC President and EVP of the BIA of Northern Kentucky.
“During these ever changing and challenging times in which we find ourselves it takes grit, determination, innovation and a spirit of entrepreneurship to successfully navigate the headwinds that face associations today. The volunteers, leaders and staff teams that represent the 2021 winners should take pride in knowing that they embody the true excellence we see day in and day out to run a vibrant and successful association. Well done!”
The winning entries will be added to the NAHB website, so that other executives and associations across the country can access and learn from them in order to provide better service to their own members and community.
