St. Louis, MO, August 8. 2014– The South Dakota Home Builders Association has been recognized for its outstanding partnership with the South Dakota Housing Development Authority, with an Award of Excellence from the Executive Officers Council (EOC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
In 2013 the South Dakota Home Builders Association partnered with the South Dakota Housing Development Authority to create the Housing Enhancement Loan Program (HELP). The program set up a mechanism for the South Dakota Housing Development Authority to give low interest loans to members to build speculative homes.
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 nearly 800 NAHB-affiliated state and local home builders’ associations representing more than 140,000 home builders in communities across the United States.
“The Association Excellence Awards recognize the outstanding effort, commitment and achievement an Executive Officer and an association’s membership have made,” said Matt Morrow, president of the EOC and Executive Officer of the Greater Birmingham Association of Builders in Irondale, Alabama. .”These awards are well deserved and represent a true showcase of the outstanding work of home builders’ associations around the country.”
