Robson Seeks Office of NAHB Vice President and Secretary
Bobby Rayburn, NAHB 2005 Nominations Committee chairman, has announced that Joe Robson of Broken Arrow, Okla., has been certified by the Nominations Committee to seek the office of NAHB Vice President and Secretary for the year 2006.
Iím a home builder and proud of it. For the last 21 years, Iíve developed land, built homes and worked on commercial and industrial projects. Along the way, Iíve fought growth boundaries, downzoning, impact fees, lack of insurance, anti-growth city councils, assaults on private property rights, lack of infrastructure and overzealous regulators.
I have been active in both the Tulsa and Oklahoma home builders associations and served as president of both. My varied background ó from builder to banker to timber farmer to community volunteer ó gives me a broad perspective to represent the many segments of the NAHB family. Since being elected to the NAHB Board in 1990, I have worked to protect and enhance our industry through the political process on a local, state and national level. We have a strong association, but it has not reached its full potential.
Letís stir the pot, shake things up, harness the energy of 225,000 members and take NAHB to new heights.
