Four members of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) were honored this week in Orlando at the International Builders’ Show for their professionalism, political engagement, volunteer activities and service to the industry.

The Associates Committee honored Curt Cartwright of Rapid City Window & Glass in Rapid City, S.D., as the Bill Polley Advocate of the Year for NAHB’s national political action committee, BUILD-PAC. This award is given to an Associate member who stands out for his or her encouragement and support. Winners are recognized for their energy, enthusiasm and ability to recruit contributors to help build up the PAC’s resources.

Cartwright chaired his local PAC for three years and has been national PAC trustee for the South Dakota HBA for almost six years. During his time as trustee, he has more than quadrupled the amount raised in the state for the PAC. He has worked to increase local PAC participation and interest, and been instrumental in many PAC fundraising events. He helped establish the highly-successful America’s Ride for Housing as a state NAHB PAC fundraiser.
