Judy Dinelle, CAPS, CGP, AMA, of Asheville, N.C., works as a building ambassador for 84 Lumber and is heavily involved with many committees in NAHB. She has served as the 2018 chair of the NAHB Professional Women in Building (PWB) Council and currently serves as the first vice chair of the Associates Committee. Celebrating both Associate Member Appreciation Month and #PWBWeek19, Dinelle reflected on her NAHB involvement the last few decades. "The people I’ve met through NAHB have not only helped me grow 84 Lumber’s business, but I’ve also made some friends that I’ll have for life," said Dinelle. "The networking opportunities NAHB provides on the local, state and national level is invaluable, and I wouldn’t be where I am today, professionally and personally, without being so involved." With nearly 40 years of experience in the building industry, Dinelle has been involved in all three levels of the NAHB Federation. Locally, she has chaired Gold Key, Table Top, BUILD-PAC and Legislative committees. Within PWB, Dinelle was a charter member of the Asheville HBA PWB Council, and has been its vice chair and chair. In her state HBA, she worked her way up through PWB leadership positions, serving as treasurer, secretary, vice chair and chair. "I look forward to becoming the chair of the Associates Committee in 2020," said Dinelle. "Associates have a lot to offer — we help the builders create their homes, and they help us stay in business. It’s all connected." If you are an Associate member, thank you for supporting America’s housing industry.
