The Las Cruces Home Builders Association has announced the promotion of Nicole Black to Executive Officer. Black recently assumed designated responsibilities of EO and was officially appointed after a decision from the Las Cruces Home Builders Association Executive Committee and Board of Directors.
Black has been part of the Las Cruces Home Builders Association for four years, starting with the company as Membership Coordinator in 2013 and transitioning to Operations Manager in March 2016. In her previous roles, she was responsible for strengthening membership and assisted with financial and member event planning for the association.
“I have been entrusted with an amazing opportunity to further grow this association to its full potential,” said Black. “I plan to strengthen our relationship with our city and county government, build more relationships with businesses in the community, further develop our membership, and move forward with our new Student Chapter with Dona Ana Community College.”
Black was born and raised in Las Cruces and studied at New Mexico State University. She then began work in the industry with a local construction company in Las Cruces as an administrative assistant before joining the LCHBA. Black is a mother of three children, Nicolas, 24; Briana, 16; and Tyler, 9.
“Over the years, Nicole has proven to be competent and enthusiastic about the association,” said Mike Fraembs, Las Cruces Home Builders Association 2016 President. “With her proven experience and genuine concern for the well being of the LCHBA, we are confident in her transition to Executive Officer.”
The Las Cruces Home Builders Association was chartered in 1959 and is comprised of members of the building industry and its affiliates. The association provides educational opportunities, advocates for the building industry with the City of Las Cruces and Doña Ana County, and promotes the building industry through special events. The LCHBA is a subset of the New Mexico Association of Home Builders and the National Association of Home Builders.
