Emerging Leaders Program

Emerging Leaders Logo 420x420 (2)

The Emerging Leaders Program was created to engage the next generation of leaders in the residential construction industry to explore future leadership and/or ambassadorship within the association. The intent is to provide sustainability, growth, and enthusiasm for member companies and the association.

The mission of the Emerging Leaders Program is to drive and support the initiatives of the Home Builders Association of Northwest Michigan (HBANWMI) with a focus on sustainability through ambassadorship and leadership.

Members wishing to be part of the Emerging Leaders Program are asked to contact HBA Past President Dean Adams.
