“I am truly honored to be leading the NAHB 55+ Housing Industry Council. It is the most exciting and vibrant new-home market going right now,” said Chapman. “Our Council’s membership is a tremendous resource for builders wanting to learn more about the 55+ housing market, and I hope that our programs for 2016-17 will elevate our profile and draw other builders into our Council and into our marketplace.”
