ERLANGER, Ky. — The Building Industry Association of Northern Kentucky (BIA) was recognized by being awarded 5 Association Excellence Awards (AEA) from the Executive Officers Council (EOC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) from a total of 19 available nationwide categories for their work in 2022. “We are thrilled with being recognized once again as a leader among our peers nationwide and awarded 5 of the 19 possible categories of AEA Awards across the country.
That represents a record number of AEA awards for our local association in one year. We have been awarded 4 AEA awards one year previously and 3 AEA awards in two prior years going back to 1993. What is more meaningful for the first time, we have been recognized for the staff team’s work for our community.
We encourage our team to go out and serve on other boards, committees, task forces and working groups in the interest of our industry and the community. Within our team of six individuals, we serve 15 like groups annually outside our nationwide federation’s governance and more within the NAHB structure. That is an outstanding testimony to how our team sets an example for our members and industry by giving back and contributing to positive outcomes for our community,” said Brian Miller, Executive Vice President.
“The AEA – Association Award submissions from our Federation’s local and state associations always amaze me. The award entries help spark new ideas and fuel motivational energy for other builder associations. We have a superb professional network, and it’s awesome to witness when the award winners reach out and help our colleagues successfully duplicate their efforts,” said Jay Iverson, EOC President and Executive Officer of the HBA of Iowa. “The volunteers and staff members representing the 2022 winners should be proud. Cheers to the award winners!”
