Coming off the 2022 midterm election results, BUILD-PAC — NAHB’s bipartisan fundraising arm for electing federal pro-housing candidates — is already in full swing, supporting industry champions for 2024.

Last month, the Ohio Home Builders Association (OHBA) held a BUILD-PAC fundraiser in Columbus during the HBA’s fall awards and installation banquet. The event, Bourbon Bash Auction, offered various bourbons, wines and Amish cheeses for bidding.

Judie Docs, executive officer of the North Coast Building Industry Association (NCBIA), donated a W.L. Steller bourbon, and Andy Profanchik, owner of APCO Construction, donated an E.H. Taylor bourbon bottle. In total, the event raised $7,740.

“Events like these are always a great draw to bring our people together and raise awareness for a common cause,” said Fred Tobin, owner of Tobin Construction Company. “I am proud to be a part of our Federation’s efforts to elect federal pro-housing candidates with peers across the home building industry.”

Scott Meyer, NAHB assistant vice president of government affairs, attended OHBA’s fundraiser and offered remarks for the upcoming congressional term.

“I appreciate any opportunity to join NAHB members and share the advocacy agenda for the upcoming Congress,” Meyer said. “BUILD-PAC is a critical component of our efforts to support the membership, and the more members get involved, the better policy outcomes we achieve on Capitol Hill.”

The North Dakota Association of Builders (NDAB) also recently held a fundraiser for BUILD-PAC, a tasting involving various bourbons. A guest presenter joined the HBA, sharing the political history of bourbon and the stories behind some of the labels.

“Bourbon history and auctioning is the first time we’ve done this type of event for BUILD-PAC, and we were overwhelmed by the positive feedback our members gave,” said North Dakota HBA Chief Executive Officer Kayla Pulvermacher. “We’re excited to build upon this event and do more in the future. And I encourage other HBAs to consider hosting similar BUILD-PAC events of their own.”
