At its March meeting this past Monday, the High Country Home Builders Association heard from Paul Capua of Capua Law Firm on how to avoid or minimize legal disputes with clients by utilizing 10 risk-management principles.

That was the main course for the evening, but the organization also made a couple of announcements; one was a continuing-education recognition for an associate member and another was a service recognition for the High Country Home Builders Association.

Cody Byrd, owner of Vision Design Build Remodel and NCHBA Region 9 Vice President, recognized Whitney Burns, marketing director for VPC Builders, for achieving an accredited associate designation through the N.C. Builders Institute.

According to Byrd, very few associates in the state have this distinction.

VPC Builders is a full-service construction firm specializing in commercial and residential construction, custom home building, green building and remodeling in the Carolinas, according to its website.

“Education and continuing education is very, very important in my opinion. Our company believes in that as well and tries to encourage all of our employees to [stay] on top of the trends through continuing education,” Burns said. “This is the way to be recognized and to set yourself apart from your peers and also to increase your value as an employee in your own companies eyes and for your clients and potential clients.”

The High Country Home Builders Association was also recognized by the N.C. Department of Transportation for 25 consecutive years of participating in the Adopt-A-Highway program. Jennifer Mackey, an executive officer with the HCHBA, said the stretch of road that the HCHBA cleans and maintains is on N.C. 105 near the Avery-Watauga county line.

This is just another example of community service that the HCHBA and its members provide to the community. See a prior article about annual community build projects and student scholarships the HCHBA and its members participate in with their time and money:
