October has been busy at CCHBA

There was the golf tournament and then the 21st Century Builders Expo (where we spotted several members including Patrick Mann, Bill Boulia, Jesse Creech and Barry Ballou). We also hosted our second Builder Lunch and are in the midst of a Website and Social Media overhaul (hope you like the updated Punch List!! Send your feedback here)

New Product: Construction Journal

Two weeks ago at the 21st Century Builders Expo, I saw a product demonstration that I thought would be wonderful for our members and they agreed to give two weeks of temporary access to Construction Journal’s service for any interested CCHBA members.

Construction Journal publishes information on large single family home developments, multi-family residential projects, commercial construction, and more. They help companies in and around the construction industry build new relationships, find and secure additional work, better/more profitable work, and work closer to home. You can see more about their service in this short video: CLICK HERE

To take advantage of the two free weeks, visit their website or contact Jesse at 704-409-7660 ext. 324,or email him here.

Be sure to mention you're a CCHBA member!
