2019 MEDIA KIT & SPONSORSHIPS TESTIMONIALS As an architect, I thought it would be appropriate to join the HBRA a couple of years ago. The organization has far exceeded my expectations! I had the opportunity to meet many new builder colleagues as well as a professional group of building project suppliers, interior designers, etc. My HBRA experience has added much value to my business and brought wonderful personal contacts that were unexpected. Thank you for the opportunity to teach some course and being part of the HBRA community. - Leigh Overland Leigh Overland Architect, LLC “Being a builder member of the HBRA of Fairfield County, has many advantages. It has provided us a network of professionals to work with, gave us the opportunity to receive awards and obtain recognition from our peers, and be part of the building community. We gain knowledge on current affairs and continuing education as well as lobbying efforts at the state level for and against code changes. We are extremely active in the HBRA - we feel it’s the most important resource for our company.” - Anthony DeRosa, DeRosa Builders “I have been a member of the HBRA of Fairfield County for almost 25 years. I put the time in, went to the meetings, joined the membership committee and got my feet wet. This association has given everything back to me that I could have or ever dreamed of giving to all of the,. It has been the base of my business. As an associate member what I can say to any future member is to get involved - you will never regret joining this amazing association.” - Kim DiMatteo The DiMatteo Group “When I started my business 5 years ago I joined multiple organizations to help grow my business. I was prepared to devote considerable time and effort to the organization that I felt would bring me the most value. It quickly became apparent that HBRA was that organization. I have made some valuable business contacts, learned a tremendous amount about the building industry and have witnessed the growth and impact of this organization. I can also say unequivocally that the relationships I have built with builders, designers, stagers and other members have been instrumental in raising my business to the next level. It is also nice to have an extended family of business colleagues when you are a single entrepreneur to bounce ideas off of and get insight into how they deal with small business challenges. HBRA and its membership are my trusted business partner. ” - Karen Bradbury Closet & Storage Concepts “Becoming a part of the HBRA of Fairfield County has been one of the most beneficial decisions I have made for my company. Within the first couple months of being part of the HBRA of Fairfield County I attended my first monthly membership meeting and was immediately taken under the wing of one of the HBRA’s long-time members and introduced to a number of different members. Needless to say, I suddenly felt right at home. Being a relatively new member I have already seen such great value in this association. I have networked with many builders and associates who all share the same goal, helping contribute their products and services to making Fairfield County grow. ” - Justin Schietinger Eastern Metal Works HBRA OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY | 3
