The 2017 International Builder’s Show was held, Mid January, in Orlando Florida. The ceremonies started off with a history of NAHB’s 75 years from its inception. Our very own Kevin Kelly, of Leon N. Weiner & Associates, starred in the show!
The guest speaker for the opening ceremonies was Peyton Manning, former NFL Player of the Denver Broncos. Manning gave an inspirational speech about leadership.
Kicking off the week filled with informative educational sessions; HBA DE Members and staff attended the area 3 Caucus, which included Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Our very own State Representative, Kevin Whittaker addressed the attendees about issues Delaware Builders are facing on both the local, state, and federal level.
On Wednesday, the meeting of the members was held. The Meeting of the Members is an opportunity for NAHB Members to learn how NAHB’s grassroots guides the association’s direction and activities. Members were given a great speech on how the National Housing Endowment is helping a young man entering the building industry.

That evening, HBADE hosted a mixer at David’s Club, at the Hilton Orlando. There were about 60 members mingling and chatting with other members. We would like to thank our generous sponsors for allowing us to put on this great event!
To end the week attendees were able to attend the Spike Party, which had Country Music band, Little Big Town. The performance was lively and enjoyable, with a little Fleetwood Mac thrown into their show! To attend the Sold Out Spike Party, members earn Spike credit by bringing new members into the HBA.
