What does it mean to be a foundation sponsor? A SOLID FOUNDATION of SUPPORT!
Home Builders Association of Jackson members should take notice of 5 special companies that have committed to being Foundation Sponsors for 2016. They have many things in common: the understanding of marketing their companies, involvement and active participation in their industry, successful attitudes, and strong company support for the home building industry, among many others. It’s not a surprise that these companies have been supporters of HBAJ not just this year but for many years.
Atmos Energy is a huge supporter of the Parade of Homes and encourages their many members to be involved in committees and to attend HBAJ events. Marsha Barber shares her wisdom with the HBAJ staff on specific projects as well as brainstorming ideas for the future. Atmos brings many talented employees as members including Neal Mashburn, Bob Kerley, Chip Shotts, Willie Alexander and Mildred Nelson. They build solid relationships with our members.
BancorpSouth has given HBAJ several active members as well as financial contributions for many years. Joe Robertson has served on the Board for countless years and also served as Associate Vice President. Andy Barksdale, Robert Quarles, Collen Holliday, Allison Impastato, and Kim Jent (Insurance Services) have served on many committees and actively attend events throughout the year. Joe Robertson keeps a watchful eye to make sure Associate members are represented within the Association.
Trustmark – Kevin Kinkade, Marvin Freeman, Jeannie Barrier, Pam Marascalco, Breck Tyler, Kevin Stringer as well as other principal members including George Gunn, have supported the Association with their volunteerism as well as financial commitments. The Association would not be the same without the support of Trustmark.
MMC Materials - Stanley Mangum and his team including Mark Stovall, Billy Ray, Johnny Toler, Webb Bozeman and Glen Weldon are an active part of every project HBAJ offers their members. They have been a member of HBAJ since its existence.
The signage created for our Foundation Sponsors has a saying at the bottom that reads, “The association is made up of our members, the Foundation is built by our sponsors.” Without the physical and financial support of these outstanding companies, HBAJ would not be as strong as it is today.
