Elected vice chair was Alicia Huey, president of AGH Homes, Inc. in Birmingham, Ala., and an executive committee member of the Home Builders Association of Alabama.
Houston, owner of Houston Homes in Edmond, Okla., is also a member of the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association’s PWB in Oklahoma City and served as council president in 2009. In addition, Houston serves as the 2011 president of the Oklahoma State Professional Women in Building Council.
A longtime NAHB volunteer leader, Houston has been in the building industry for more than 20 years and brings extensive national, state and local experience to the table. She served as a national PWB regional trustee and supports various local women’s councils in her area, offering effective activities to maintain membership and service in the community.
She was profiled earlier this month in her local paper, The Oklahoman.
Houston is also a member of the NAHB Single-Family Small Volume Committee.
“I’m honored to be chosen to lead the Professional Women in Building this year,” Houston said. “The home building industry is beginning to emerge from a difficult period. The networking and educational opportunities available to our members allow us to make this ‘new’ industry much more responsive to consumer preferences and economic realities.”
Among her priorities this year are increasing PWB’s legislative efforts at the local, state and national level, and continued outreach and networking to provide service to PWB members.
The NAHB Professional Women in Building council is the voice of women in the building industry, dedicated to promoting professionalism and supporting its members at the local, state and national levels with networking and educational opportunities, legislative awareness and outreach, and professional and personal development.
