CWHBA Wins Awards for Central Washington Tour of Homes™
and Accompanying Publication

Yakima, WA – Central Washington Home Builders Association has been recognized for Best Parade or Tour of Homes event and Best Publication for 2021. The 2021 Central Washington Tour of Homes™ event series and its accompanying HOME Resources & Buyers Guide magazine publication both were awarded and Award of Excellence from the Executive Officers Council (EOC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).  


“It is truly an honor for the hard work and professionalism of the HBA staff to be recognized with this Association Excellence Award,” said Tim Lovelass, CWHBA Board President. “I applaud their dedication to representing the home builder members and protecting the American Dream of homeownership for our community.” 


 “Despite limited resources, the HBA was able to promote 17 incredible home projects in the 2021 Central Washington Tour of Homes™ event series and presented an excellent come-back event by implementing a widespread social media and marketing campaign, highlighting the participating builders in the HOME Resource & Buyers Guide magazine publication.” 


The Association Excellence Awards is an annual program designed to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of state and local home builders’ associations and executive officers in the field of association management. EOC membership is comprised of the staff executives who direct more than 650 NAHB-affiliated state and local home builders’ associations representing more than 140,000 home builders in communities across the United States.  


“It never ceases to amaze the work product that is created by local and state HBA’s throughout our NAHB federation. The shear cumulative effort embodied by all that submitted for AEA awards is beyond impressive,” said Brian Miller, EOC President and EVP of the BIA of Northern Kentucky. 


“During these ever changing and challenging times in which we find ourselves it takes grit, determination, innovation, and a spirit of entrepreneurship to successfully navigate the headwinds that face associations today. The volunteers, leaders and staff teams that represent the 2021 winners should take pride in knowing that they embody the true excellence we see day in and day out to run a vibrant and successful association. Well done!” 


The winning entries will be added to the NAHB website, so that other executives and associations across the country can access and learn from them to provide better service to their own members and community.
