"Meeting these students, the future of our industry, is why I have served on this board for over 20 years" states Michele Myers of M Squared Builders, the Vice Chair of the HBA Foundation. HBA CEO and Foundation Executive Director Holly Fraccaro shares, "I could not be more proud to serve the HBA of Durham, Orange & Chatham Counties and its Foundation. The charitable spirit of this association was the ultimate decision-making factor for me in accepting this position."
