With a room full of builder and associate members, long-time association member and builder, Henry J. Kelly, Jr. of the Kelly Group provided a brief history of the multi-generational families that comprise the homebuilding association just before he introduced Michael's father, Jan Kokes, who performed his son's installation as President of the association. "Bringing back esteemed past presidents has always been a tradition for our annual installation, and we were so honored to have Henry J. Kelly take to the podium to remind us of our rich history of builder members. In addition, to the Kokes family, we have many builder families that have been active members of this association since its founding in 1945," explained Gina McNamara, Executive Officer of Shore Builders Association.

In addition to Hank J. Kelly, attending the installation were association past presidents David Fisher, Corey Wescoe, Linda Bernaski, Dwight Pittenger, John Cummins and immediate past president Tom Bovino.
