After 15 years as executive officer of the Building Industry Association of Okaloosa and Walton Counties, Alan Baggett has resigned from the position, according to a statement from the trade group.
- Baggett and the association agreed to part ways as of Dec. 31.
During his tenure, he worked to ensure construction curriculum was available in schools in Okaloosa County by partnering with both the Okaloosa County School Board and the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors.
Last year, Baggett helped establish a nonprofit foundation affiliated with the Building Industry Association to provide scholarships aimed at addressing worker shortages in construction trades.
The association, which advocates for firms involved in residential and commercial building projects in the two Panhandle counties, has nearly 200 member companies.
