Rombach wins Small Office Honor of the Year Award

Cindy Rombach, Executive Officer of the Kenai Peninsula Builders Association, has received the Small Office Honor Award from the Executive Officers Council (EOC) of the National Association of Home Builders. The award was presented during the annual NAHB’s 2014 Association Leadership Institute held in St. Louis. The council’s membership consists of the staff executives who manage the nearly 800 state and local home builders associations that comprise NAHB.

“Winning the Small Office Honor Award is truly a great honor,” said Kevin Kelley, Chairman of the National Association of Home Builders, in a press release. “Cindy exemplifies what executive officers strive for, and I’d like to personally thank her for the guidance she gave her fellow colleagues at the Alaskan Conference I attended in 2013.”

This award, named in honor of Rachel Manley, the late executive officer of the Arrowhead Builders Association in Minnesota, is traditionally presented to an executive officer from a small association who is judged to have made exceptional accomplishments in spite of limited resources. Cindy is recognized for her many professional accomplishments on behalf of the building industry on the Kenai Peninsula, the state of Alaska, and the nation, as well as her contributions to the local community.

The Kenai Peninsula Builders Association represents home builders, contractors and associate members in the housing industry throughout the area.
