President's Message

Written by ICHBA

Our association is pleased to again bring you our annual Festival of Homes and hope you will enjoy our 2017 show.  As a business owner with my work in a number of Festival entries, a former Festival chairman, and current president of the Iron County Home Builders Association,  I personally have seen and know about the thousands of hours that are invested by our association members to prepare for this event . . . and I thank all those involved.

People travel here from Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and other states to see our show, and of course our local community comes out in large support, as this annual event brings significant economic value to our community.  Our members, and particularly our builders and Festival of Homes Committee members, and importantly our Festival sponsors, come together to make this show possible.  The Home Builders Association expresses sincere thanks to our sponsors State Bank of Southern Utah, Coldwell Banker Advantage, Sunroc, Nichols Development, DeMille Turf Farm/Red Cedar Rock, and the Cedar City Brian Head Tourism Bureau. We also couldn’t do it without the support of our media sponsors; Cedar City Daily News, Iron County Today, and Cherry Creek Radio.

Our association membership includes160 builders, subcontractors, and business associates that are ready to serve the building needs of Iron County and beyond. Our local trade association is part of the HBA of Utah and the National Association of Home Builders, and we encourage high ethical standards, and believe in fair and honest business practices.  We provide training on the ever-changing building requirements and study new trade technologies and practices.  Please see the membership listing in the back of this magazine and contact our skilled, professional members to help you with your building and remodeling needs.
