NAHB Chairman Jerry Konter received the Home Builders Association of Georgia (HBAG) Builder Member of the Year Award last week. The award recognizes a leader in the industry who has made a major impact at the local, state and national levels.
On the local level, Konter served as president of the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Savannah in 1991. He was three times recognized as Builder of the Year by the HBA of Greater Savannah and was inducted into the local Home Builder Hall of Fame, the highest honor for a builder at the local level. He also received several awards for outstanding service and leadership from both the local and state home builders associations. He has chaired various committees and remains an active and engaged local member.
Konter was elected president of HBAG in 1997 and has served as chair of the Government Affairs Committee. He was inducted into the state Home Builder Hall of Fame, the highest honor for a builder at the state level.
“Jerry has had a major impact on the home building industry on the local, state and national levels throughout his career,” said HBAG Executive Vice President Austin Hackney. “He is a past president of HBAG and has been selected by his peers into the HBAG Hall of Fame. This award recognizing him as the Builder Member of the Year is another of his well-deserved awards. HBAG senior leaders, staff and the entire membership are proud of Jerry and all that he has accomplished, especially now serving as NAHB Chairman.”
