    Why Do We Exist

    The average age of a builder member in the United States is approximately 57 years old and as an association Executive Officer I am always planning for the future of the association.  When you consider that most of the current builder members will be retired in the next 10 years, you have to start to consider where and more importantly who is the future of your association.  There are younger builders and associates involved in the industry, but they are not likely to join an association like their parent’s generation did.  What would interest them about coming to a meeting or dinner with other members that are the same age as their parents?  They are looking to network and build relationships with those business owners that are of the same age, mindset, and place in life.

    In 2013 the Home Builders Association of Greater Tulsa saw the missing demographic in its membership and also realized that those members that were younger in age were not involved in the activities of the association.  That’s when we formed our young professionals group which we named 40Below.  We invited a group of our members that we knew were 40 years of age or younger and pitched the idea of them being able to network with one another, while serving a purpose to the association.  They loved the idea and developed their own purpose and core values that you see today.
