Executive Summary

Thank you all for your warm welcomes and congratulations! 

Wow, what an amazing time to walk into the office! We have so much going on right now, I am at full tilt boogie to get up to speed. Please note that I will be out of the office next week, but will be returning on the 15th ready to rock and roll. I am really excited about being back with the Association and am looking forward to what we can do together.

Community Service Invitation

Emil Wanatka of Timberline Builders is forming an ad-hoc committee to do some improvements sought out by Home Aid, Colorado Association of Home Builder's charity of choice. 

They are looking to make improvements at the Volunteers of America Homeless Shelter, and the Women's Safe House right here in Durango. These projects have historically been very instrumental in team building and forming lasting bonds among our members. Please get involved today!

If you are interested in joining this group, please email 


The sole charity partner is The HomeAid Project
