In 2012 your incoming President, Dan Boyd stood on this stage and challenged his new board of Directors to dig deeper and increase their involvement as a volunteer leader, not only at the Chapter level but throughout the Industry. To measure the progress of this challenge, in January of 2013 your BIA Staff implemented a process to track each board members’ participation and it was decided that at the 2013 Awards and Installation Dinner a Board Member would be awarded for their efforts. Upon the success of the program in 2013 your President Jay Pierce decided to continue, with the thought that we could achieve an even greater level of participation from our Board in 2014. We believe this contest has fostered a great competition and has led to an even greater participation by the entire Board Directors. This program is now one of our Chapters secret to our success. We would like congratulate our Board of Director Member of the Year, Randy Madrid of RM Project Development and Runner up Board Member of the Year, Tim Maloney of Community Works Design Group.
