The 2016 HBAG Fall Meeting, held at the Westin Jekyll Island, was well-attended and said by many to be the best meeting in several years. Thank you to all who were there and helped make the event a huge success!
Several members from throughout the state were able to come to Jekyll Island on Tuesday and participate in the B-PAC golf tournament at the Jekyll Island Golf Club. It was a beautiful day to raise money on the golf course for B-PAC.

Throughout the rest of the day, members attended important committee meetings and a luncheon featuring Ed Brady, NAHB’s 2016 Chairman of the Board, as guest speaker. Also getting high praise from meeting attendees was Amy Eakin and her presentation on useful, time-saving apps. Patty Rietkovich, EO for the HBA of Greater Savannah, got members excited and pumped up for the 2017 HBAG Membership Drive at her membership seminar, “Be Prepared”.
