Brent McCaffrey, President of McCaffrey Homes of Fresno, Calif., has been named to a two-year term as Chair of the Building Industry Association (BIA) of Fresno and Madera Counties, California.
Established in 1947, the BIA of Fresno/Madera Counties is affiliated with the state-wide California Building Industry Association and the National Association of Home Builders. Members of the BIA include leading home builders, developers, trade contractors and building material suppliers.
“Brent will continue the tradition of strong leadership for the Building Industry Association,” said Mike Prandini, Chief Executive Officer of the BIA of Fresno/Madera Counties.
The BIA’s mission is to cooperate with all branches of government – and trade, civic and veteran organizations – to defend housing affordability and economic competitiveness in the area.
“As President of McCaffrey Homes, Brent knows the challenges facing the building industry.” Prandini added. “He will work to achieve the common goals of the BIA. Through Brent’s diligent efforts, we know that he will be an effective advocate for the industry and our members.”
