Building Bridges with Builders


Throughout the summer months BIA was working hard to bring our association a couple of events that have been great successes in bridging together associates and industry trades with builder companies and their representatives.  Our annual Builder Tailgate and regional Meet the Builder proves to be two events that provides for strong networking opportunities for the entire membership.  As the economy continues to thrive and the home building industry appears promising we are noticing the increased participation of our members at events such as these.



The Builder Tailgate event, held on June 20th at Lennar, Corona Pointe’s parking lot brought out over 250 participants.  Sixty trade exhibitors and fifty plus builder representatives helped to solidify the tremendous achievement this event has created over the last three years.  This would not be possible without our event sponsors: Action Property Management, Equity Management, Fusion Sign and Design, Gateway Concrete, PetersenDean Roofing and Solar, Reliable Wholesale Lumber, Suncoast Post Tension, Temps Plus, The Land Stewards, TTG (Tmad Taylor & Gaines) Engineers, and West Coast Drywall & Paint.  Congratulations to Howard C. Fletchers for winning our best Red, White & Blue decorated booth.



Meet the Builder remains a strong regional event, held at Anaheim Hills Golf Club this year on July 25th.  More than 350 members attended this event with 70 builder representatives comprising 25 builder companies on exhibit.  This format is always much anticipated because it is a twist on the traditional trade show format, where builder companies are the table top displayers.  Special thank you to all of our members who sponsored this event: Andrew Lauren Interiors, Applied Photography, Farley Interlocking Pavers, Fiber Care Baths, Fusion Sign and Design, Landscape Development, Leonard Roofing, Precast Innovations, The Land Stewards, Toro, TruWood, Voit Management and Energy Efficiency Education Partner-Southern California Gas Company.

We especially would like to mention Reliable Wholesale Lumber for their incredible support of these two events as our Grand Sponsor.  Additional thank yous to Fusion Sign and Design for providing all signage related to the events.  It is with amazing companies like these that allow BIA to be successful in providing our high level of service back to the membership.  Lastly, our gratitude also goes out to the countless volunteers that dedicated their time and effort toward making this event a success.
