Building a Better Mississippi

Mississippi Housing Hall of Fame

The Home Builders Association of Mississippi Housing Hall of Fame was established in 1988 to honor men and women who have made significant and lasting contributions to housing in Mississippi, the building industry and Home Builders Association of Mississippi.

Nominees for the Mississippi Housing Hall of Fame are not required to be members of the association, but they must have made lasting contributions to housing in Mississippi. In this context, contributions are defined as “any unique, innovative, or outstanding achievements in the design, construction, marketing or financing of housing which have made an impact on home buyers and the home building industry”. Financial success or size of a nominee’s assets shall not be considered.

 

The nominee’s influence may vary depending on each individual’s role. Examples of the various roles are provided below:

Builder/Developer:  Owner or major principal of a residential building company.

Government:  Elected/appointed official or individual in government service.

Housing Industry Associate:  Involved in various other sectors of the housing industry; i.e., lenders, architects, land planners, manufacturers, researchers, trade association staff, bankers.

 

The Hall of Fame committee selects a maximum of two nominees to be inducted. Selected honorees are inducted into the Mississippi Housing Hall of Fame in a ceremony during the Home Builders Association of Mississippi State Convention.
