Remodelers Speed Selling
- FOR BUILDERS... Speed Selling events are an efficient and effective way to build relationships with new vendors and suppliers in a laid-back environment. Attendance is free for remodeler participants. JOIN THE NEXT EVENT
- FOR ASSOCIATES... Get face to face interaction with your target audience! Participants will receive approximately 5 to 7 minutes of personal face time with up to 20 remodelers. Events are limited to members of the CBC. RESERVE YOUR SPACE
The Speed Selling event is the most effective activity GHBA has created. I was introduced to subs and suppliers I did not know existed, found out information to help my clients, and started the development of important relationships that will make my service to my clients better and in a very short time....It would have taken weeks if not months to set up those meetings and some I did not even know existed.

Each year, Remodelers Council members team up to participate in the AIA Sandcastle Competition on East Beach in Galveston, Texas. Held in early summer, this event is enjoyable and family-friendly with lots of fun in the sun! Participants are encouraged to assist with the design and building of the sandcastle. And don't forget to join the RMC for their private Sandcastle Pre-Party the night before the competition!
The Remodelers Council is seeking any donations of building materials, appliances, hardware, etc. that you can spare.
