Greetings and salutations.

I am feeling confident. Yes, I am. 2013 looks to be a transformative year for the NHWA. At just a little over two years old, the NHWA is now represented from Alaska to Florida. Our membership is growing steadily, and the interest in our organization is much stronger than last year. We are set (finally) to launch our brand-new and improved Website. For those who have not seen our new logo and marketing materials, I urge you to visit and like our Facebook page. The new look and Website will be easier to navigate, offer an Accredited Members section, but more importantly will promote our industry in a clear and more direct way. Education of the public as to what Home Watch is remains a top priority for us at the NHWA.  This is also the year that we will be able to gather and publish good and accurate data to our Accredited Members. This is incredibly important if our industry is to make strides with insurance providers, lending institutions and the federal government. Members can look forward to online training through the use of webinars and increased newsletters that will have timely information about the Home Watch industry. In 2013, we will continue to educate the real estate industry as to the importance of Home Watch. In the next few weeks, we will be announcing the details about our first Annual NHWA National Conference, to be held in Myrtle Beach in the Fall of 2013. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know ASAP. On behalf of all of us here at the NHWA, I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. May it be filled with happiness, good health and, as always,

Much success,
