Better Together BY ERICH ARMBRUSTER 2018 MBAKS PRESIDENT ASHWORTH HOMES MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT As the nation's oldest and largest homebuilding association, we carry a tremendous responsibility to lead and succeed. Nowhere is this more important than in our own backyards. Often ignored is the fact that we also call this region home. More than 2,900 of us live and work within the communities we help develop, build, and sustain. Our members provide significant employment for the region, they coach our kids' neighborhood sports teams, and are sponsors of impactful area nonprofits. We aim to build a sound future for every one of our residents. To provide the employees, families, and visionaries of our region a place they can call home. We cannot, however, do this alone. It's a collective effort wholeheartedly bigger than our association. It takes a community coming together—a unified region—to realize this shared vision. We are tasked with the sacred job of providing shelter for people of all economic strata. We are builders, architects, remodelers, trades professionals, and associates all, though we are but a piece of the puzzle. As such, we are always open and willing to work with anyone who shares our vision for a healthy and welcoming region. We seek to engage with those who want to honestly address the issues challenging these goals, those who are as passionate as we are about housing advocacy and all that lies within. We may not always agree and no one solution will fix the numerous, multifaceted issues we face today. We know this. However, I firmly believe we are strongest when we work together, tackling issue by issue—this is how we will get there. As we go, so goes the Puget Sound region.
