President’s Message

by Bo Jones, HBAL President

I think Spring is FINALLY here and that means the Spring Parade of Homes is not far off. I hope you are able to take some time to visit some of the beautiful homes on display. Even if you’re not in the market for a new home, it is still fun to see what is new and trending in home design.

On May 5, HBAL will be hosting a Construction Career Day at Southeast Community College at 88th & O Streets. Middle and high school students are encouraged to attend this event to visit with companies and learn about the opportunities available to them. You can find more information about this event on pages 10 and 11 or you can contact Jereme Montgomery at 402-525-5535 with any questions.

The Primary Election is on Tuesday, May 15. As Americans, it is important we take the time to educate ourselves on the candidates and vote. If you would like to know who HBAL supports in upcoming elections, please feel free to call the HBAL office. HBAL’s political action committee (HOMEPAC) has interviewed candidates and financially supports those who they feel will positively impact housing in Lincoln.

We are excited to launch a fundraiser to support HOMEPAC. HBAL members will have the opportunity to purchase apparel from Art F/X with the HBAL logo embroidered on the sleeve. All of the proceeds from this sale will go towards HOMEPAC. We opted to have the logo on the sleeve so you can add your own logo on the front at a later time. Watch your email for specific instructions on how to order your apparel and a link to the online portal. The portal will be open May 7-21.

We have lots of events coming up this summer, so be sure to read through this issue and mark your calendar for the events that most interest you.
