BIA kicks off 2024 with committee and board leaders

Fun Facts

The Building Industry Association of the RRV was thrilled to kick off the New Year with committee chair and vice chair orientation for our leaders last month. They brushed up on how to run a meeting, engaging volunteers, guidelines, committee organization and so much more!

Special thanks to our facilitators, Joyce Balstad, Syverson Tile & Stone, and David Reid, Radiant Homes.
