2015 BIA President's Message
Share |

Aloha BIA Members,


It is a great honor to greet you as President of the Building Industry Association of Hawaii (BIA-Hawaii) for 2015. As members, we are dedicated professionals representing developers, general contractors, specialty contractors, suppliers and associates. As BIA members, we are connected to the other 140,000 members of the National Association of Homebuilders, as well as the NAHB Sales and Marketing Council, CAP, Senior Housing and Remodelers Council groups. We represent a wide array of Hawaii’s economic diversity and collectively continue to support each other to survive challenging economic times and thrive in expanding times.


Membership benefits offer opportunities that honor BIA’s promise to help our members succeed and grow. These opportunities create connections as you support educational programs at our Robert H. Armstrong Construction Training Center of the Pacific facility, serve on BIA committees and attend our membership meetings and networking events. Connections are also formed with participation in signature consumer shows, while knowledge is gained as you access instant information and business opportunities on the BIA-Hawaii website.


The 2015 legislative session will be a very significant opportunity for our Government Relations committee to communicate the needs and concerns of our members, as well as the public in increasing the supply of housing at all price points. A new Governor and his administration will benefit from our VOICE in supporting the construction industry. I ask for your support by advocating for BIA with your testimony that has been made so easy on our website. I ask for your commitment to expand personal networking and connections both within our organization and with other community organizations. I ask for your collaboration in joining our efforts to educate decision makers and voters on the many vital, yet highly complicated, industry issues that will be under review in 2015.


I ask for your Aloha as we strive to create strong connections, communicate the needs of our membership and serve the people of our island home as One Connection, One VOICE and One BIA to strengthen our construction industry.



Rick Hobson
