Another Successful International Builders’ Show in the Books

by | Feb 28, 2019

What was the most unexpected thing to come out of our trip to Las Vegas for the International Builders Show?  A snowstorm! Thanks to Mother Nature, our trip to Las Vegas and those of many other Coloradoans was extended by two days due to a very rare winter storm that struck Wednesday night.

I started the week at the Global Opportunities Board meeting, thanks to an invitation from Robert August. Topics of discussion included updates on global membership and recruitment and the 2018 Global Innovation Awards.

I attended both the Land Use Policy Subcommittee and Land Development Committee meetings where topics of discussion included a draft research report on small homes and ADUs, and an anticipated introduction of an infrastructure bill in the House of Representatives that will includes a proposed revolving fund to pay impact fees for multi-family and low-income housing development.

On Thursday morning my friend Phil Stuepfert and I presented Creative Design Solutions in a Conventional Development World at the IBS Design Studio.

If you have a land development issue and you could benefit from input from your industry peers around the country, please share it with me and I can bring it up for discussion at the Spring Board meetings in June.

Also, Kristie, as a board member of the Professional Women in Building (PWB) and the new Chairperson on the PWB Outreach committee (2019), participated in all of the PWB functions.  At this year’s award luncheon, our Denver chapter received the honor of being second in the nation for community outreach!  All of the PWB chapter members are instrumental in helping women and children in need in Colorado.

See you next year!
