For Immediate Release
BIA-Hawaii Thanks Call-To-Arms Sponsors
 Members Supported Organization During the Pandemic
HONOLULU (July 6, 2021) - BIA-Hawaii is pleased to acknowledge our 2021 Call-To-Arms Sponsors who were instrumental in supporting the organization through the 2020 pandemic. Since 1955, BIA-Hawaii has been at the epicenter of building Hawaii’s homes. The entire built environment from homes to high-rises to hotels to hospitals – and every part of our infrastructure – has been touched by the hands and hearts of our members. We have a tremendous legacy in shaping our communities and we will continue to play a vital role in the way Hawaii transforms itself again as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our generous Call-To-Arms Sponsors, recognized on our Call-To-Arms Recognition Wall on the BIA website, have helped us attain longevity in the face of adversity.

The construction industry has, for the most part, been spared from the most severe COVID impacts; however, trade associations like BIA-Hawaii have not been spared from significant financial strain due to the cancellation of Home Shows and many in-person events and classes, which are our most important revenue-generating activities. This revenue is what annually enables BIA-Hawaii to offer member programs and benefits, as well as the ability to advocate on behalf of the entire building & construction industry. 

“Our 2021 Call-To-Arms Sponsors were an amazing source of support and revenue for the association and helped ensure fiscal solvency during the pandemic,” said Jess Leorna, BIA-Hawaii CEO. “BIA-Hawaii and our Board of Directors are busy planning upcoming in-person events the community has come to know and enjoy such as our Big Home Shows. We are excited to share this good news that BIA-Hawaii has attained longevity in the face of adversity.”
