Northern Virginia Building Industry Association 2021 Industry Impact Report

The Custom Builder Council left behind a difficult 2020, with the first order of business naming Mark Stahl Chairman of the CBC in January, with his term continuing through 2022. Andrew Moore was namedVice Chairman. Members jumped in to serve on a wide variety of task forces to provide industry input in Fairfax County and the Town of Vienna, through the unique lens of smaller custom builders. Of par ticular impor tance was the CBC’s involvement in the Town of Vienna “Code Create” Zoning Code Overhaul—its first since 1964! The Council also came out of COVID restrictions with more par ticipation in NVBIA and Associate events and an increase in effor ts to draw in new members, recognizing that networking, sharing of best practices, and suppor t from a larger organization has never felt so impor tant! In Fall 2021, the CBC made the difficult decision to cancel the Parade of Homes due to challenges posed by COVID; attention has since shifted to increase par ticipation in the Spring 2022 Parade of Homes.
