    In November, the Durham Region Home Builders' Association will be hosting their Annual General Meeting and electing their board of directors for the 2022-2024 term. 

    The following positions are available for election:

    • Three (3) Builder/Renovator directors
    • Two (2) Trade Contractor directors
    • Two (2) Supplier directors

    Elected directors will serve a two year term.

    DRHBA's top priority is advocacy work for the building industry as a whole.  We also provide networking opportunities and great events for our members.  We are looking for individuals who are willing to share their time, knowledge and experience to further the interests of the building community.  We believe that each director brings a unique skill set and perspective to the table.

    Directors will be required to attend four board meetings per year (November, February, May and September), and will be asked to join one of our committees.  We ask that you share your time and expertise, whether that means managing a GR file, speaking at a public meeting or helping to plan one of our gala events. 

    As a director, you will be representing the Durham Region Home Builders' Association.  You will be expected to attend most of our events, including member events, seminars, the Awards of Excellence, President's Ball and golf tournament.

    Being on the Durham Region Home Builders' Association's board of directors is a great way to help shape the industry, steer the direction of the Association, network, get more involved and stay informed on what's going on in the building world.

    If you are interested in becoming a director, please forward your nomination form to Stacey at s.hawkins@drhba.com by Wednesday, September 21, 2022.  All forms will be forwarded to the nominations committee for review.  If there are more qualified applicants than positions available, an election will be held at the Annual General Meeting in November.  Qualified candidates are encouraged to provide a bio and photograph to be published in an upcoming news bulletin.

    If you have any questions, please contact Stacey at 905-579-8080 ext. 2 or s.hawkins@drhba.com.

    The City of Pickering has released its draft Parkland Bylaw

    The Planning Act gives municipalities the authority to have developers provide public parkland as a condition of their development approvals.  Recent changes to the Planning Act require all municipalities to replace their existing Parkland Bylaws.  Accordingly, the City of Pickering is proposing to replace the current Parkland Bylaw with the new Parkland Bylaw.

    The only changes proposed for the Parkland Bylaw are to bring it into conformity with the parkland rates provided in the Planning Act.  The new Parkland Bylaw will be considered by Pickering Council on Monday, July 11 at 2:00 p.m.

    Comments will be accepted until June 22, 2022 and can be sent to Paul Wirch directly or you can email Stacey.

  • June 02, 2022 7:26 PM | Durham Region Home Builders' Association (Administrator)
