Editor's Note: This summer, the OSHBA surveyed 5,000 members and non-members about the OSHBA and its effectiveness. Bottom line: Members value the association but OSHBA must do better in communicating perceived value and creating opportunities to strengthen relationships. Here's what touched the leadership about the survey results. A full report will be in the Winter 2013 issue of Builder Magazine, which you will see in your mail in December.

The results showed me that we have got to figure out how to reach out to potential members around the state who know nothing about us, but are building a lot of homes. We have to beat the streets and do some traveling to find them and let them know that OSHBA can be a very valuable resource.
