The Government Affairs Committee (GAC) at TABA is a dedicated group of Builders, developers, and associate Members who are very much in tune with the local governments of our jurisdiction.
Those serving TABA on the Government Affairs Committee include: Will Sears, Mike Pilkington, Bruce Walker, Pat Patterson, John Howe, Jason Carothers, Jim Howe, John Kiella, John Paysse, R.T. Schneider, Derrick Hunt, Chuck Lucko, Tony Gallagher, Patrick Johnson, David Patterson, and Steve Wright.
The GAC regularly communicates with the Government Affairs Director and assists with policy development and lobby efforts.
The GAC often holds meetings twice a month. These meetings serve as our monthly policy meeting and dialogue session.
The majority of the GAC serves on city boards, such as planning and zoning commissions, Chamber of Commerce boards, Economic Development Corporation boards, or local utility boards. Those who have not served on city boards regularly volunteer for city committees or workgroups.
The Government Affairs Committee works diligently to monitor regulatory issues that impact the building industry and remains an active and influential committee at TABA.
