Each year, the Executive Officers Council (EOC) recognizes executive officers (EOs) who will have completed 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 years of service in the year to come. The length of service is calculated annually as cumulative service as a voting member of the EOC and is based on information provided by you. If the below information is incorrect, please contact us so that we may update our records. We apologize for any errors.

Congratulations to all of the EOs marking special anniversaries in 2022. Your hard work and dedication to the building industry are a testament to the success it knows today.

Service lapel pins to wear with your badge at NAHB and HBA meetings are available from the EOC office. If you would like one sent to you, please contact EOC@nahb.org.

NAHB would like to extend a special note of recognition this year to Ohio State HBA EO, Vince Squillace for 45 years of service.
