Giving Back With The Greater Fort Worth Builders Association & Texas Insulation
Texas Insulation believes in building lasting relationships within the construction industry and in teaming up with others to give back to the communities in which we operate. In the Dallas/Ft. Worth region, we are very proud to have two of our own, Carol Leonard and Tony Wolff, embody those beliefs to donate much of their time and energy as Board Members of The Greater Ft. Worth Builders Association.
Carol Leonard is a longtime member of the GFWBA, serving as an Associate Member since 1984, and has served on the Board for the past 4 years. She also currently serves as a Membership Team Leader and carries roles with the Women’s Council and Women in Construction.
Carol recently accepted a role on the Education Committee beginning January 2022, and will be reaching out to our local high school kids to discuss the many opportunities in the trades that will impact their future careers within the homebuilding industry.
“The future of the building industry lies in improved energy efficiency and better environmental standards. We are already seeing consumer demand driving builders to incorporate spray foam in their projects as they want to offer an energy efficient home, a healthier home, and in some cases a quieter home where open cell foam is used to abate noise pollution,” said Carol.
“My favorite aspect of being a part of the GFWBA is the people. I strive to learn as much as possible from everyone I come in contact with,” said Carol. “I like being an Ambassador to the new incoming members, being involved with Santa Claus Project, and with Women’s Council and Professional Women in Construction.”
“The GFWBA is one BIG family where everyone lends a helping hand without question. Great people, great fellowship and networking opportunities leading to long term relationships.”
Carol is a Veteran of the United States Army and proudly served with the 561st Military Police Company Ft. Myer VA. – Honor Guard M.P., Protect, Serve and Defend.
Tony Wolff has been a GFWBA Board Member since 2018, and has served on the Young Professionals Committee for 4 years, 2 of those as Chair. In the past Tony also served on the Membership Committee and as Chair of the Charity Clay Shoot Committee for 3 years.
When asked what he likes most about his service on the board, Tony said, “The GFWBA is a group of people that have a passion for the construction industry. I believe it is important to give back to the industry that has helped me get to where I am.”
“The GFWBA has a long tradition of giving back to the community.”, said Tony, ”Through the BA I have been able to help with Habitat for Humanity, helping give a deserving family an affordable home, which is a great feeling.”
Each year, the Young Professionals Committee organizes The Santa Claus Project to collect donations to bring a brighter Christmas to children and families in need.
“I have been blessed to be a part of the Santa Project, and for the last several years, we have been able to partner with the Boys and Girls Club of Tarrant County. We collect donations and are able to bring Christmas to deserving kids. Last year we gave 40 children Christmas dinner, clothes, presents, and a new bike and helmet for each kid. This organization serves the community as much as we do the building industry.”
