Last General Membership Event of the Year a Success!

By Danielle Grommersch
BIA’s 2nd annual Political Leaders Reception took place last Thursday evening overlooking the beautiful San Diego skyline at Coasterra restaurant. Our crowd included representatives from over 30 builder companies and over 50 elected officials and senior staff. A special thank you to our event sponsors, Guaranteed Rate, San Diego Gas & Electric, San Diego Union Tribune, AJJ Associates/Landscape Resources, Inc., and Roni Hicks & Associates for your support.


BIA recognized a few important individuals who are helping to make a difference within our association and our industry. The recipient of this year’s Housing Leadership Award was Mary Casillas Salas, Mayor of Chula Vista. The Legislative Affairs Award was presented to Jeff O’Connor with HomeFed Corp. and the Political Achievement Award was given to the entire Political Communications Committee. Our 2018 BIA Chair, Rita Brandin with Newland Real Estate Group, presented the Chair Award to Lori Asaro with Ultimate New Home Sales & Marketing for her tremendous dedication and commitment to the association and fabulous work as chair of SMC.
