Original Comment:
The Modular Home Builders Association (MHBA) held its Annual Membership Meeting October 19-20 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The annual membership meeting provided professionals in residential modular construction a forum to network, exchange ideas, learn from experts, discuss issues, and grow professionally. Attendees participated in a discussion on MHBA’s Consumer Awareness Program led by Mike Zangardi of Ritz-Craft Homes and Ken Semler of Express Modular. Outgoing Chair Pat Fricchione of Simplex Homes and incoming Chair Robert Bender of Commodore Corporation led a discussion of what’s to come in 2017, including upcoming marketing efforts and promotional materials.

Tom Hardiman, Executive Director of MHBA, provided an outlook of government affairs in the modular industry, giving insight into federal, state, and local ordinances that could have a significant impact on the industry.

“There have been over 20,000 federal and state regulations introduced in the last 6 months. MHBA’s role is to prevent over regulation and push back when government gets too aggressive,” Tom said.

Harris Woodward of Finish Werks gave a presentation on high performance homes and how the modular industry is best poised to capture this market.

Special recognition was given to MHBA outgoing board member, Mike Clementoni from Muncy Homes, Inc., for his years of commitment and dedication to MHBA and the modular industry.

The event closed out with the announcement of the 2016 Modular Home of the Year. Congratulations to Zarrilli Homes from New Jersey! Their custom beach house was created as the perfect home for a large family to come together. With an open floor plan and custom finishes, this beach house is the perfect setting for a weekend away.
