The National Association of Home Builders last night honored 12 individuals who have excelled in teaching NAHB education courses and for their professionalism as NAHB educational designation holders as the Educators and Designees of the Year. The awards were given during the 2017 International Builders‘ Show® held this week in Orlando, Fla.
“These home building industry professionals definitely ‘walk the walk,’” said 2016 NAHB Education Chair William L. Shaw, Jr., GMR, CGR, GMB, CAPS and CGP, a Houston remodeler and NAHB instructor. “These leaders don’t just talk about the importance of education. They also work to stay current and even ahead of industry trends so they can set an example for the home builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who make up our great Federation.”
Certified Green Professional™ (CGP) of the Year. Sean D. Sullivan, CAPS, CGP, owner of Living Stone Construction Inc. in Asheville, N.C., specializes in green design-build and renovation as well as aging-in-place applications. He is active with the North Carolina Home Builders Association, where he has served as president and chaired the Political Action Committee.
