We want to encourage those that haven't officially joined our association to do so. There are great things happening across the country. We have new associations popping up all the time. They are joining forces with existing state and national groups to make some strong strides toward taking control of our industry.
In the month of October, HABA will be holding a Board meeting instead of our regular monthly meeting. Please take this time to reflect on the local industry, where it is now, where you would like to see it, how your shops doing and what you can do to improve it all.
