Evans Coghill Homes’ Alan Banks installed as NCHBA President
Here at Evans Coghill Homes, we are so proud of our Owner & CMO, Alan Banks. He was recently installed as the president of the North Carolina Home Builders Association.
“It is such an honor to be elected to this position,” Alan said. “I am very excited about the year ahead. The NCHBHA does great work, and I can’t wait to continue defending housing affordability for all North Carolinians in 2018.”
The NCHBA has been around for over 50 years, working to make the industry better.
With almost 14,000 members, the association encourages industry professionalism, provides a forum to strengthen industry views, and serves as an advocate for the industry that provides homes for the citizens of North Carolina. NCHBA plays a key role in helping maintain consistently higher industry standards of conduct, quality, and ethics.
“People choose to get involved with the association for the same reasons I have,” notes Alan. “Because they want to serve this great industry and do their part so more families in North Carolina will have a chance to own a home.
“I truly believe that the work we do positively changes lives and families, and strengthens the fabric of our community. We make a difference each and every day. Whether you are hammering nails, digging footings, hanging drywall, or running wire… whether you are a banker, an insurance agent, or a sales consultant, you are part of this great and necessary industry.”
In 2016, there were 61,000 new single-family and multi-family homes started in North Carolina. Many more homes were renovated or improved for families. And as Alan said so eloquently during his acceptance speech, the NCHBA has a duty to make sure everyone in North Carolina has a chance to own a home.
“We are going to fight for housing affordability, in the town council meetings, county commission meetings, at the NC General Assembly and in Washington DC. Together, we are going to stand for what is right, and clear the path for more new homeowners across North Carolina.”
