It’s July 2017 already, and everyone is busy — it was not that long ago we were all looking for the economy and the housing market to improve.
Since I was asked to climb the leadership ladder at BATC in 2014, we have seen many changes in the economy, the housing market and in how we do things here at BATC. For a variety of reasons, we are now able to accomplish more for our Builder, Remodeler and our Associate members than ever before. Do you know that 65-70 percent of the new homes in Minnesota are built here in the Twin Cities market? Our Remodelers are quite busy and their remodeling activity dwarfs outstate remodeling as well. Also, and more importantly, Twin Cities builders’ and remodelers’ projects are Inspected and highly regulated by the cities we build in, Met council, PCA, Department of Health, DLI, etc. with significant enforcement for violations.
In the last year, your Association has increased its delivery of services to its members. Like most successful enterprises, BATC must constantly improve its “value proposition.” First off, let’s take a look at our current offerings and benefits with emphasis on what is new.

BATC Marketing opportunities for your business:
BATC membership “value proposition” has never been greater.
BATC has hundreds of hard working volunteers (that have a lot of fun while working), a Board of Directors that cares greatly for you, your enterprise and your association. We also have a very professional and hardworking staff dedicated to adding and delivering these benefits to you.
Your continued support of and participation in this association brings many benefits to you, to our customers and to our industry. I contend that there is no other builders’ association you can join capable of delivering this to you.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
