I am excited to begin the new year as your president of the Riverside County BIA. We are planning a year full of events, programs and initiatives to support the members of the BIA.
I would be remiss in not congratulating Dan Boyd, our president of the Riverside Chapter last year, for an extremely productive year. Dan handled his duties with energy, enthusiasm and professionalism. Dan has moved on to take over as the President of BIASC, and we wish him well in that position and will continue to work with him on issues affecting our members.
As our members should be aware by now, BIASC(Building Industry Association of Southern California) is the association of BIA Chapters that includes Riverside County, Baldy View(San Bernardino County), Orange County and Los Angeles/Ventura County. We will be working closely with BIASC and the other chapters to put on joint events and coordinate on the important governmental affairs issues that come before us.
With the new year starting, I have a renewed sense of optimism about our industry. We see evidence in most all sub markets in Riverside County that the pace of building homes is picking up. Many of the private builders, including myself, are starting projects in our county. I believe we will see many new projects in this coming year. We hope many of you are planning for an exciting and productive new year.
