Jeff Click, President
The first Monday of the month fell on Labor Day, so like the rest of you, I took the day off. Spent some lovely time with my wife and kids, er, change that, spent some time with my lovely wife and kids and just enjoyed the warm Oklahoma weather. Once again I was reminded that September is still mainly a "summer" month. As most of you know, a day off doesn't mean a day gone - just means double the effort on Tuesday. So, the First Monday Memo is coming out not on the First Tuesday but the Second Monday. Confused yet??
Let's get to business. We're just days away from our OK Building Summit, OSHBA's premiere training event. Hopefully you saw the article in Saturday's Oklahoman or on our Facebook page. (What?! You didn't know we have a Facebook page?)
It will be Sept. 18 at Reed Conference Center in Midwest City. The Oklahoma Building Summit 2013 will address the needs and concerns of our members. Your survey feedback last year told us training on new state codes is your primary need. We developed the tracks around those codes and how they can impact your business:
Structural Framing Walls & Roofs
Foundations, Soils and Concrete
Energy Efficiency, HVAC & Insulation
Legal: Torts & Warranty
Make plans now to attend the Oklahoma Building Summit 2013. Early Bird registration ends this Wednesday - September 11! Join with other state building professionals. Visit exhibits, see and hear about the latest industry developments, and learn how your business can become code compliant and stop rejections! Complete information and registration is available at http://www.OKBuildingSummit.com.
After the Summit take time to clean your shotgun and regrip those golf clubs. Because OSHBA has two exciting events coming your way. I'm making plans to attend and I hope you will. Continue reading this email as information is below on what's happening. (And I will need this kind of break as getting for the upcoming Parade of Homes is exhausting.)
For you State Board members, make plans to join your fellow directors on Thursday, October 24, in Tulsa. We have a few items on the agenda and your input will be valuable. More details will be coming in a future email.
Serving you with my best effort,
