The Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) Remodelers Council is 2022’s NAHB Remodelers Council of the Year. The council’s annual Charity Garage Sale returned in 2022 after being cancelled two years in a row due to the pandemic and brought in over $30,000 in proceeds. These proceeds were used to fund the GHBA Remodelers Council’s local charity projects, which largely consist of providing renovations for local non-profit organizations. They also awarded two $2,000 scholarships to immediate family members of active GHBA Remodelers Council Members in memory of Leo Meerman and Bill Carter, two longtime active members.
The Houston Remodelers Council were able to grow their membership by 30% by ensuring their members received access to programs, information, education and camaraderie both online and in person. In addition to their charitable work, the council fostered connection and fellowship via educational webinars, in-person contract seminars, monthly luncheons featuring speakers on issues affecting the remodeling industry and more. The GHBA Remodelers Council has solidified its reputation as a place where members build more than just business skills and knowledge, but long-lasting professional relationships, as well.
