Building Industry Association of Clark County announced its board of directors for 2024. President is Chuck Neibert, co-owner of Affinity Homes. In addition to Neibert, the association has added Alexa Lee, sales manager at GRO, to the executive board and Nikki Hinton Duke of Hinton Development as a board member. Other board members include Elizabeth Gomez, owner of Bridge City Contracting, Dave Campos of iQ Credit Union and Mark Kroll of Alliant Insurance Service.

The executive board is prioritizing workforce development and housing affordability initiatives for 2024. To advance on these priorities, the BIA’s workforce development nonprofit Building Futures Foundation is building out programs to engage students in experiential learning and skilled trade training programs. On Feb. 23, the foundation hosted its inaugural Green Tie Gala to grow its scholarship fund to offer more tool grants as well as trade school and academic scholarships.

“I am proud to lead an organization that is committed to addressing one of our biggest needs and greatest opportunities in our community,” said Neibert. “Our next generation needs profitable careers and attainable housing prices. Our workforce development initiatives are designed to train up new skilled trade workers and solve for the workforce shortage, one of the contributors to rising home prices.”
