The HBA of South Georgia has moved into a very busy fall with a number of events being planned! In order to prepare for the November 5th elections, HBASG decided to partner with the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce and the Valdosta Board of Realtors to host a
“Meet the Candidates” event on September 29th. It was designed to give the public an opportunity to meet and hear from candidates running in the general election. Attendees were able to speak one-on-one with candidates who were then given three minutes to discuss his or her main initiatives. The HBASG feels strongly that the public should continue to be informed on political candidates and issues so that wise choices can be made when electing the individuals to serve our communities.
On Thursday, October 8th the HBA of South Georgia held its Annual Awards & Installation Banquet, where Joe Herndon with Wilson Restoration & Specialty Construction was installed for the second term as the 2015-2016 President. At this time the newly elected Associate and Builder director members were installed, as well as State & National Directors for the 2015-2016 Year. HBASG was also honored to present the following awards to a few members: Member Hall of Fame, Georgia Power; 25 Years of Dedication, Scruggs Concrete, H & S Supply, & Southern Builders Supply; Member of The Decade, Clinch County Glass; President’s Choice Award, Weidinger Floor Covering; Builder Member of The Year, Joe Herndon; Associate Member of The Year, Layton Dees; and last but certainly not least, the newest award “Legendary Member Hall of Fame Award” was presented to Vicky Biles!!
Plans are well underway for the annual Sporting Clays event that will be held on December 3rd. There are already many teams signed up and lots of sponsorships confirmed. HBASG is looking forward to a very enjoyable day!
