Things are starting to get hot around here! Plunge into the June calendar and get ready for some cool networking and educational meetings and events. Our Young Pro group will hang out at Stewart Mungo's Tiki Hut, the BIA Golf Classic is coming, the SMC will meet, we'll award scholarships to students and the Remodelers and High Performance Building Councils will have a mixer... and that's just JUNE!

This is Earl McLeod's last month as our Executive Officer. Earl is retiring after 38 years in that role and will leave us on June 30th. We welcome Allen Hutto as the new CEO as he starts on June 1.

Also, we bid farewell to our Financial Administrator, Ruth Ellen Hardee. She is retiring on June 11 after 10 years with the BIA. We welcome Mary Ellen Palker to the BIA team as the new Financial Administrator.
