Attention all BANN-er Award Entrants and Finalists - Here are a few updates:

Congratulations to the 2015 BANN-er Award recipients. You can now find the complete list of winners here.

There were so many beautiful, qualified entries this year, it made the judging very challenging. The fantastic judges possess over 50 years combined experience in architecture and design. They carefully reviewed all entries, plans, videos, and walk-through's with thoughtfulness and care.  Unfortunately, not all of our finalists brought home awards - but we sincerely hope that those who did not take home an award this year will submit their entries again next year (as the winners cannot enter again.)

Did you know?
Every finalist and entry  receives a complimentary hanging banner which you can hang where you like in your office. (The banners that were displayed in the ballroom during the awards ceremony). Please come get yours today!  Please stop by the BANN office Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m..  Thank you!

We also have photos from the BANN-er Awards event on Facebook. If you cannot find your photo, please call (775) 376-7381 or e-mail us and we'll e-mail it to you. Thank you.

Committees and Councils:

  Please note that all of the committee meetings for December have been cancelled due to conflicts with other meetings and the holidays.

Message From: Melissa Palange:  With Christmas right around the corner, we are asking our Remodeler's committee members and any interested BANN members to join us for a Holiday Gift-Wrapping Party on Dec. 11th. Many in our community have already made donations for Angel Tree gifts for local children and families. That is under way. Those gifts must be wrapped! Please consider helping us meet that need.

Join us for a fun afternoon of holiday gift-wrapping for the needy.

Where: Builders Association of Northern Nevada - Conference Room
When: Friday, December 11th
Time:   2pm to 5pm

We'd love you to Bring
*    One roll or packet of wrapping paper (from kiddie-themed to traditional for variety)

*    Scissors and tape
