The Clyde Anderson Associate of the Year recognizes an associate member who provides exemplary service to the Dallas Builders Association and its members and to the homebuilding industry as a whole.

DowDuPont has been a member since 1978.
The AP Roffino Award was presented to the Parade of Homes Committee, recognizing its achievements last spring in bringing back the popular home show as a very successful one-day tour of custom homes.
The Shorty Howard Trophy, which is given to the year’s top membership recruiter, was presented to T.W. Bailey Sr. of Bailey Family Builders, who brought in 16 new members last year. Bailey has won the award 11 times.
