The Certified Professional Builder of the Month for March 2015 is Ken Beatty with KEB Crafted Homes LLC. Ken is a member of the Builders Association of South Central Oklahoma (BASCO). Ken is fairly new to the Certified Professional Builder program, having joined in 2014.
The CPB program was developed by the Oklahoma State Home Builders Association to promote the professionalism of the industry. To be "certified" by OSHBA a builder member had to step up from the basics of just joining the association. As with any professional, continuing education was the primary goal.
Ken welcomed this challenge and has been a proud participation ever since. He utilizes the log in his company's marketing materials and especially appreciates the continuing education opportunities the program affords. He has participated in the OK Building Summit and recently attended the International Builders Show.
Ken jumped into the program and association by actively participating in association activities. Ken is active on the Code Review committee for BASCO as well as their Festival of Homes Committee.
Please join with us in recognizing Ken Beatty as the March 2015 CPB of the Month.
