'CPB of the Month' Impressive Group

 
Posted on March 24, 2013 by Mike Means

The Certified Professional Builder Program can help you increase your business and become a better builder. A Certified Professional Builder (CPB) voluntarily commits to a set of industry best practices that include carrying workers compensation and general liability insurance, building to required code standards and taking continuing education classes.

Oklahoma homebuyers can choose among more than 2,400 builders statewide. Since the state does not require licensing, the Certified Professional Builder designation can help the buyer with that choice. Only 150 or so builders have received and maintained the certification, and it provides the buyer assurance of professionalism and a higher quality experience. A complete list of CPBs can be found on the OSHBA website, www.oshba.org.

Last year, OSHBA began recognizing the "best of the best" with the "CPB of the Month" award.

If you have been an OSHBA member for two years, you are eligible to enter the CPB program and begin certification. Or, please consider nominating a builder to join these outstanding people as a "CPB of the Month." Kathy Kastner (kathyk@oshba.org) can help you or visit the OSHBA website for more information.

The men and women nominated for the award are active in OSHBA and their local associations, serving in leadership positions -- present and past -- and working to improve the industry in Oklahoma. The inaugural class is an impressive group:
