Announcing the July 2020 New BIA Member Recruitment Challenge!

Do business with someone who's not a Member of the BIA but should be? Let's bring them in!

During the month of July, the BIA Membership Committee is challenging all BIA Members to recruit one new member.

To sweeten the deal:

The first three BIA Members who recruit a new Member with a paid new member application in the month of July 2020 will receive: (1) $100 Amazon gift card and an Instagram BIA Trade Talk Live! interview (see BIA Instagram page for examples...follow if you already haven't)

After the first three BIA Members recruit a new member, each member who recruits another member in July 2020 will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

Help strengthen your Association with new Memberships and win a prize in the process! Questions? Contact Tom at the BIA: or 859-273-5117

Remodelers Council
The past several months have seen some excellent "virtual" Remodelers Council meetings with special guests, such as, Congressman Andy Barr and NAHB Chief Economist, Robert Dietz. Now, as restrictions have been lifted, the July 15th Remodelers Council meeting will be in-person at the all-new Pieratt's location in the Crossroads Plaza at 125 East Reynolds Road, Ste. 50, Lexington, KY 40517.

COVID has caused quite the disruption in the supply chain of certain goods. Remodelers, builders and supply stores have all felt frustrations recently. The July 15th Remodelers Council meeting will feature a great discussion on the appliance industry, in particular, giving attendees up-to-date news on the industry and expectations to pass along to clients.


Please wear masks if you feel led to do so.

An RSVP IS REQUIRED for this meeting. Boxed lunches will be provided, so please RSVP to Tom at the BIA or 859-273-5117 if you plan to attend. Please RSVP by July 10th.
