I just received a glossy, full color 44-page “President’s Report” from the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. I wonder if these guys have gotten the memo. Their members are hurting. The New Home Industry is under siege! I’m more optimistic than the next guy about good things lying ahead, but right now, I have to wonder why I’m paying these guys big dues so the “President” can report in the most old-skool of ways. Here’s a suggestion: try the Internet for Sam’s sake! Email your report. Post on the Association website. Put it on Sam’s Facebook page. Anything but print and mail a 44-page slick report that actually does little to address the core issues that face our industry. And if any MBA’ers are thinking I’m being a little harsh? Be damn glad I didn’t choose to pick on the wretched, self-serving excess of that thick hard cover you published this year for the 100th Anniversary. Can I find anything GOOD to say about the Pres’s report? The orange on the back cover is pretty nifty!
