Thursday Final Day at International Builders Show

Today bring a closing to the intense activity filled trip that is IBS.  Loads of classes, new exhibits, meeting new friends and prospects while reconnecting with the familiar faces we only see each year.

Today the annual meeting of the NAHB Board of Directors met.  Nearly 600 Board members rose early and arrived for the meeting this morning which runs from 8am till 2pm. Delaware members on the Board include Kevin Kelly, Steve Bomberger, Jim McCulley, Bob Thornton, Debra Young, and Jeff Haggerty. We heard many informative reports, including that the final attendance tally at IBS is expected to number 110,000 people!

Thursday brings the official closing of IBS, capped off with the 2016 Spike Concert which features Darryl Hall and John Oates.  The Spike party is the NAHB thank you to members that have recruited and brought in new members over the past year to their local home builder associations.  Tickets are complimentary to eligible spikes, while other attendees can buy tickets at $40.

Many of our Delaware members that have attended IBS will be returning home Thursday or Friday.  Of course we here are all watching the latest weather forecasts for the impact of weather storm Jonas, and how it will affect flights into Baltimore and Philadelphia.  See you all next week in Delaware!
