We wanted to take a moment to express our deep appreciation and thanks for our former staff member, Lauren Galliano. After 9 years with the HBA, Lauren decided to focus more time on her family and two toddlers. As our Director of Membership and Industry Relations, Lauren increased membership engagement through our networking events, and put our remodelers council on the map with her educational workshops and council leadership development programs. Lauren's hard work was recognized nationally this year as the recipient of the 2017 Cadre Award for Outstanding Council Coordinator. Thank you for all that you've done for the HBA, and we wish you all the best!
