|PVBIA - Letter of the President|
My name is Danette Stilwell and I am first and foremost a member of the Piedmont Virginia Building Industry Association, as well as President of our association. My family business has been operating in Culpeper, Virginia since 1978. Throughout the years I’ve seen the highs and lows in our industry. More importantly I have seen how this association, not just in the piedmont region, but also at the state and national level; has advocated for the best interest of our industry. We live in the age of innovation and as such communication lines between several sectors of the building industry; is no longer just a social nicety. It is instead a necessity to keep our local businesses competitive in our ever-changing marketplace.
With that in mind, it is my goal as president to continue the education of our new members of new regulations, policies and new innovations which will be the benchmarks of success for our community in the years to come. Look out in our publications for upcoming events, which will discuss the changes to the ICC Building Codes up to the 2012 standards. Our association has done great work on the local, state and national level; but like all advocacy groups there is strength in numbers. I urge you to bring other local businesses you do work along-side to PVBIA to increase our efficacy here in Culpeper as well as in Richmond and of course Washington DC.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me, I always looking for ways to improve our beloved community! Also if you have an interest in growing our association and its effectiveness please contact me with your area of expertise/ interest.
