TABLE TOP NIGHT

  A lot happened!  HBA Table Top Night Happened.   It happened in a new venue, with lots of new vendors and friends , plenty of good food and drinks, and lots of fun.  Thanks so much to Bill Dehass, PRO-Build & Builders FirstSource and Scott McCarl, Huttig for their generous sponsorship of this event.  40+  vendors and building industry supporters were on hand to show us the latest in building materials and technology.  To start the evening off, HBA Members and vendors enjoyed complimentary drinks on the Azalea room patio at Spartanburg Downtown Marriott.  Members and guests enjoyed mingling, eating, drinking and learning.  We can do it all at the HBA!  Please click below to view a list of Table Top Vendors and their email addresses.

HBA Spartanburg is Coming to the Party

...with the help of Ben Womick, B.E. Womick GC.  Ben has generously agreed to volunteer his expertise in all things social media/digital technology for the good of the HBA.  He will be chairing and developing a Technology Development Committee for the HBA.    Thankfully, he has opened our eyes to the great demand for technological interaction and communication with our members.  Ben was employed by Universal Studios in Los Angeles before starting his own  general contracting company,  Technical Arts, Inc. Besides commercial and residential remodeling, Ben has been involved in international theme park building - and I'm not talking Six Flags. Thankfully his heart is in S.C. where he has reconnected with his high school sweet heart and has gone to work with his mentor and best friend, his Dad, Buddy Womick.   He's work is going to make us one of the cool kids.    Attend the Septmeber meeting to find our more. 

 

What People are Talking About

 PayPal Invoicing

Payment for HBA invoices by credit card are processed with a PayPal invoice.  PayPal has recently increased their service charge fee.  It is with regret that the HBA must increase our Administrative fee to 3%.  This will enable us to break even with the PayPal fee. That's the good news. The bad news is that PayPal has announced another increase in their fee structure.  We'll let the dust settle before we decide on another increase.
