2018 Council Awards for Demonstrating Excellence (CADRE)
Continuing its award-winning history, the Greater Houston Builders Association’s (GHBA) Remodelers Council (RMC) was honored to receive two Council Awards for Demonstrating Remodeling Excellence (CADRE) from the National Association of Home Builders in Washington D.C. at the International Builders Show held in Las Vegas.
The CADRE for Outstanding Council Chair was awarded to 2017 Remodelers Council president, Kevin C. Vick, CGR, CAPS, CGP, president and CEO of Vick Construction and Remodeling Inc. Kevin was instrumental in working with the GHBA during and after Hurricane Harvey to distribute important consumer information to Houston-area homeowners whose homes had flooded or were damaged. Kevin also served as the 2015 chairman of the RMC Garage Sale Committee, and was an NAHB Remodeler of the month.
The CADRE for Outstanding Council Coordinator was awarded to Donna Buenik, GHBA staff member since 2006. In October 2017, Donna assumed the role of Remodelers Council Coordinator. This was a difficult time, as Houston had just experienced the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey. Donna’s understanding of the GHBA and the Remodelers Council was invaluable, and the transition was seamless. Donna consistently goes above and beyond expectations and the Remodelers Council is continues to grow because of her care and expertise.
The GHBA Remodelers Council stresses high professional standards in the home improvement industry through the continuing education of its members and consumers. Monthly luncheons feature speakers from all facets of the building industry, including designers, marketing professionals and even elected officials.
The Remodelers Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at Houston Racquet Club. The council is open to remodeler and associate members alike.
