Executive Officer's Message

January 2017 means that the 5th Annual Home Builders Association of Midland's Building Trades Fundraising event is right around the corner on January 26.  Our community is blessed to have two local high school career technical education programs while many communities around the state are not offering any trades classes.  Funds raised have gone to support purchases of hard hats, safety equipment, tools, etc.  Please RSVP today to attend and consider sponsoring as well.  Also, if you have not secured your 2017  Home & Garden Show booth spaces you don't want to miss out this year!  A grand prize of $7,500.00 will be given away to be used at the winner's choice of show vendor(s)!  This is a win for patrons and for vendors!  Sign up today - the show is 80% sold out!  


Midland Area Homes is looking for a project manager as Paul is retiring soon. If you know anyone that might be interested just let Dick, Shelley or Nancy Money know.
New! New! New!

State Update
From Bob Filka, HBA MI CEO

Speedway's New Program:

The BAD NEWS: Speedway is getting out of the fleet management business and the fleet program is being turned over to a company called FleetCorp.  They are also known as Fuel Man in some parts of the country.

The GOOD NEWS: FleetCorp. has pledged to commit to at least 12 more months of our current deal (5 cent discount and no cost management system).

The "THIS IS DIFFERENT" NEWS: no longer will members and their employees be able to get discounts at Marathon stations....just Speedway stations...and members will be getting new cards to use.
