The Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood
2017 ASHBA Building Conference
The annual building conference and board meeting was held November 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood and was attended by homebuilder members and non-members from across the state. This year featured NAHB 2017 Third Vice Chairman of the Board, Dean Mon, NAHB National Area Chairman, Sherry Schwab and NAHB Field Representative for Region E, Alicia George. 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 very successful. The Installation Banquet with the State Build-PAC auction and photo booth topped off a great conference; one that everyone will remember! There was also a presentation that evening by AHFC for the most energy efficient home built in Alaska and the most energy efficient multi-family project in Alaska. Congratulations to Aaron Welterlen, 2017 Builder of the Year and Wes Keller, 2017 Associate of the Year.
