Bob Jones a Candidate for NAHB Vice President/Secretary
Bob Jones of Michigan, running unopposed for NAHB vice president and secretary, is looking forward to the opportunity, with the directors’ support, of becoming an NAHB Senior Officer at the board of directors meeting in Orlando during the upcoming International Builders’ Show (IBS).
Following his certification by the Nominations Committee at the 2006 IBS, Bob embarked on a year-long nationwide tour, visiting state and local home builders associations, attending numerous regional conferences, and meeting with past leaders and emerging talents in every part of the country.
“It has been an incredible experience,” Bob said. “Imagine being able to spend time with more than 2,000 industry colleagues — builders and associates representing every discipline in our business — receiving firsthand feedback, hearing extraordinary ideas, obtaining excellent suggestions.
“I think everyone would agree that the common attribute among our members is their commitment; they are involved, knowledgeable, opinionated and outspoken. Believe me, they shared their thoughts and concerns honestly and straightforwardly, providing me with a solid understanding of the issues that are on their minds. This has been a fantastic educational experience.”
During the business meetings at IBS, Bob plans to make the traditional visits to the area caucuses to express his appreciation for the reception his campaign has received. Prior to the election, he will address the NAHB Board of Directors in his last official appearance as a candidate.
