OSHA 10 HOUR CLASS
CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SAFETY COURSE

Do you or your employees have the tools you need to work safely? The OSHA 10-hr course is designed to assist employees with recognition and avoidance of safety and health hazards on the jobsite. This is an entry level look at the OSHA standards as they apply to construction jobsites. Who should attend? Company owners, field employees and anyone who has a safety responsibility on the jobsite would benefit from this class. Learn from actual claims that have occurred - one misstep or unsafe behavior can affect you and your company. We will employ hands on discussions of real life situations that you may have experienced and the solutions to correct them.

All participants must be able to pass the final test to earn a course completion card. By attending this class, you'll be able to:
  • Recognize and avoid jobsite hazards and protect others from harm
  • Learn about what rights and responsibilities you have as an employee in regards to safety on the jobsite
  • Anticipate what to expect from an OSHA inspection, including employer rights
  • Comply with OSHA standards for fall protection, electrical, PPE, and more
  • Save money by avoiding fines and costly insurance claims
  • Feel safer working on the jobsite
  • Earn a course completion card from Federal OSHA

Members-Only Webinar: Tax Reform and Your Bottom Line
 
The landmark tax reform legislation, which took effect Jan. 1, created significant changes in the tax code that will affect the housing industry and our small business members.
To help you understand how these changes could impact your business, NAHB is providing a members-only webinar on March 5 at 1 p.m. ET.

The webinar will feature NAHB tax experts and outside tax counsel who will focus on the specific changes that will most directly impact small businesses, including the 20-percent pass-through deduction, limitations on the business interest deduction and new depreciation guidelines.
Members will have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar. If you are not able to join the webinar, a replay will be posted on nahb.org.

NAHB remained actively engaged throughout the tax reform debate and fought hard to ensure that our industry's priorities were addressed. As the implementation of the law begins, we will continue to work on behalf of our members and keep you updated as more information becomes available.

 
Home Builders Association of Fayetteville
2017 Annual Report
 
Sharlene Williams, 2017 President Remarks
I began my year as the 54th President of the Home Builders Association of Fayetteville. I was honored to serve and enjoyed getting to know many different members through our events and meetings. It was great to begin the year with a housing forecast from a local perspective and then again midway through the year with a national overview. The HBAF membership retention remains strong and the membership committee worked diligently to recruit new members. Our non-dues events continued to grow in participation and net revenue. I am most proud that the leadership approved to endow a scholarship with FTCC in the New Construction Program. Students in that program are the future workforce for our industry and it is wonderful that the HBAF has partnered with FTCC for this important endeavor. I would like to thank the board of directors, committees and the staff for their tremendous work in 2017.
