As leaders in our respective companies we can all define success in our own special way. Whether a small victory, or a game changing event that invigorates your business plan with new ideas and energy, we all are empowered to make things happen. We can control our own destiny within our organizations – we work together to share ideas and best practices. We provide each other support when help is needed. Together we form alliances that collectively allow us to rise above our own strength and act with the strength of a multiplier. LIBI enables us to multiply our strengths for the good of not just our organizations but for the good of our industry.
Over the past several months our success as an organization has come in a number of ways from continuing to positively impact legislation affecting our industry, working with our elected and administrative officials, presenting our expertise to the trade and the public through one of the most successful, well attended and educational Trade Expo’s to greatly increasing our membership and attracting the next generation of builders and related business men and women.
Our membership works and lives here on Long Island and is involved in our Community Outreach Committee where our members attend their local government meetings addressing issues and projects important to all of us. Our organization also gives back in many ways through our charitable arms including Long Island Home Builders Care, Inc awarding 2 College Scholarships per year from the L.I. Builders Gregory Mancini Memorial Scholarship program.
Our L.I. Builders PAC (Political Action Committee) continues to work with our State and Local officials. Every day local representatives make policy decisions that affect our entire industry. It is not only important to reach out to those individuals to inform them of the outcome of policy changes, it is also vital to ensure that the representatives who have our best interests in mind get elected and re- elected. That is why raising funds for our PAC is crucial for our industry.
