HBA of Greater Springfield Honored with Three National Awards for Association Excellence

The Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield this week was honored with three national awards for association excellence. The 2009 Association Excellence Awards were presented in Santa Fe, New Mexico as a part of the National Association of Home Builders’ annual Executive Officers Council Seminar. 

Annually, a variety of categories of Association Awards recognize – in a wide range of categories – outstanding work by HBAs of varying sizes from across the country. By receiving top honors in three categories, the HBA of Greater Springfield again was among the most decorated Home Builders Associations in the country. This years awards also mark the fifth consecutive year that the HBA of Greater Springfield has received the top honor in the category of “Best Political Action Program.” 

“Of course, receiving national recognition for our association’s work is gratifying and humbling,” HBA CEO Matt Morrow said. “But it also serves to underscore what most of us already suspected: we live and work someplace special. The members of the HBA of Greater Springfield are remarkable people who do remarkable things, as if they were routine. Our HBA staff is hardworking and committed to serving those remarkable members at the highest possible level. And those who make up our volunteer leadership (board of directors, committees, councils, etc.) are people of extraordinary vision, purpose, and resolve. They are leaders who – even amid the unprecedented challenges facing our industry – consistently insist on excellence in everything they touch.”

  • Best Service Delivered to Members: Market Analysis & Construction Forecast;
  • Best Publication: HBA Housing News Weekly E-Newsletter; and
  • Best Political Action Program: Good Government City Council Campaigns
