Grandview Hotel in Wasilla
The annual building conference and board meeting was held October 16, 17 and 18th at the Land’s End Hotel in Homer and was attended by home builder members and non-members from across the state. This year featured NAHB National Area Chairman, Eugene Graf and Governor Dunleavy flew into Homer to spend an hour with us to discuss current issues. The conference was kicked off with the Meet & Greet Welcome Reception featuring a Wine Wall Raffle, which sold out. The two-day education schedule included classes and seminars with something for everyone in the building industry. The NAHB Gold Key Reception featured excellent food, including oysters and was enjoyed by all. The Installation Banquet with the State Build-PAC auction topped off a very successful conference; one that everyone will remember in a beautiful location! The Membership Retention Award was accepted by new ASHBA President, Victor Banaszak, on behalf of our Juneau association. Congratulations to Rich Carr, Builder of the Year and Carolyn Foelsch, 2019 Associate of the Year.
