Homebuilders Association @ The Sheridan Holiday Inn
Sep 26 @ 6:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Big Horn Home Builders Association will welcome Alicia George to its next general membership meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at The Holiday Inn.

George, a field representative for the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C., will give members a presentation on NAHB’s priorities and what this large national trade association is doing in Washington, D.C., to keep housing affordable, reduce regulatory burdens and help keep the home building industry healthy.

According to BHHBA, an ongoing trade dispute with Canada is making lumber prices much more volatile and potentially driving up the costs of new homes, while uncertainty about the extent of federal jurisdiction over the nation’s rivers and lakes is slowing down the permitting process.

“NAHB volunteers and staff are working tirelessly on Capitol Hill and also speaking to federal regulators about the harmful effects of bureaucracy and red tape,” George said. “Home building is an important driver of the nation’s economy, and helps bring better jobs and stability to communities here in Sheridan County. NAHB works to keep housing strong.”

George received her law degree from Georgia State University College of Law, and a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Georgia. She resides in Denver.

The Big Horn Home Builders Association also welcomes potential members to the Tuesday meeting to learn more about the networking, promotional and educational opportunities available through membership.

All Sheridan County companies and businesses active in home building, remodeling or related fields are encouraged to apply — and many association members are happy to sponsor a qualified prospect.

“We welcome Alicia to this meeting and we hope that Sheridan County’s builders and their suppliers and trade partners will come to hear what she has to say — and also learn more about the advantages of belonging to our great association,” said Gini Horner, director of operations for the Big Horn Home Builders Association.

The Sheridan Holiday Inn is located at 1801 Sugarland Drive.

Energy markets presentation @ Sheridan College
Oct 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — On Monday, Dr. Robert F. Ichord Jr., a non-resident fellow of the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, will give a presentation on changing global energy markets.

The presentation will take place from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College.

Ichord has been at the forefront of U.S. international energy policy for more than 40 years, serving with the Department of Energy, U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. Department of State. He served as deputy assistant secretary in the State Department Bureau of Energy Resources from 2011 through early 2016, leading high-profile efforts related to energy security and energy transformation.

In his presentation, he will share his views on changing global energy markets and their implications for U.S. domestic and foreign policy. He will address the radical shift in the U.S. position with respect to oil and gas development and exports and its impact on energy geopolitics, domestic energy markets and Wyoming’s energy resources. He has recently completed a study on China and will discuss China’s expanding role in international energy issues. Energy diversification, the increasing penetration of renewable energy and the growing energy markets in the developing world will be considered in the context of global efforts to address environment and climate issues as well as sustainable development and energy access for the poor.

Ichord’s presentation will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Jean Garrison, director of the University of Wyoming Center for Global Studies. The panel will focus on the current energy situation in the U.S. and Wyoming.

Panelists will include Kipp Coddington, director of the Carbon Management Institute at the University of Wyoming; Todd O’Hair, senior manager of government affairs for Cloud Peak Energy; and Jessica Western, director of the Collaboration Program in Natural Resources, Ruckelshaus Institute at the University of Wyoming.

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available before the program.
