Award-winning custom homebuilder Frank R Jenkins was recently installed as the Lee Building Industry Association’s President.
The Lee BIA is a not-for-profit trade organization representing Lee, Hendry and Glades counties and is a powerful voice for the building industry in the regulatory arena. The mission of the Lee BIA is to promote, protect and preserve homeownership, private property rights and affordable housing by advocating for balanced laws, regulation and fees through member education and outreach. Membership in the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is automatic upon joining the Lee BIA. Currently the Lee BIA has more than 370 members.
Jenkins has more than 26 years working in the custom home building industry and was recently awarded Lee BIA’s Pinnacle Award for Best Kitchen Design for his Longwater Chase custom home in Gulf Harbour.
“I’m honored to once again be leading this incredible association for our region,” said Jenkins. “The Lee BIA does such great work not only for our thriving construction industry but also for much needed community outreach like Builders Care that providesemergency construction services at no cost to needy and deserving elderly and/or disabled homeowners and their families. I’m really excited for what the future has in store for our association.”
Jenkins has been a member of Lee BIA since 1995 and has previously served as president of the organization in 2000, 2001 and 2004. He will serve a two-year term.
