Earlier this month, the Home Builders Association of West Florida gathered for their year-end banquet, a momentous occasion where our own Austin Tenpenny had the honor of being sworn in as the First Vice President. The event was a celebration of leadership transitions, welcoming our 2024 HBA President, Mr. Dax Campbell, and expressing heartfelt gratitude to our outgoing 2023 President, Mr. Amir Michael Fooladi.

As a steadfast advocate for the home building and land development sectors throughout his entire career, Austin attests to the pivotal role the HBA plays in championing the interests of its members. The collaboration with the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) and the National Association of Home Builders extends a network of support and provides countless benefits to our members.

The significance of the HBA’s advocacy becomes evident when navigating challenges such as land development code changes, impact fees, and building code modifications. Time and time again, the association has proven to be a vital ally, fighting the good fight on behalf of its members to ensure a thriving and sustainable industry.

Proudly, Austin embarks on another year of service on the Senior Board of the West Florida HBA. This commitment underscores my dedication to fostering positive change within our industry. Together with his fellow board members, they will continue to work diligently to elevate standards, address industry challenges, and create an environment conducive to growth and innovation.

The HBA’s commitment to excellence is not only reflected in its advocacy efforts but also in the myriad of benefits it offers its members. From networking opportunities to staying abreast of industry trends, the association provides a platform for professionals to connect, learn, and thrive.
