Do you know what the SC Modular Steering committee does?

The SC Modular Steering Committee plays a key role in the factory-built home industry in SC.  These individuals guide MHISC on issues that impact the modular side of the industry and work to strengthen modular sales long-term.

For example, at the group’s next meeting on  July 17  they’ll  include making plans for implementation of  the 2018 IRC, the new edition of the modular building code that kicks in this January.  What can we do to ensure a smooth transition?  What do third parties, manufacturers, local governments and new state government managers need to know?

The group will also look at Residential Builder Commission licensing issues. A company needs a Residential Builder or GC license to sell and install mods in SC.  Some companies are having a hassle getting the license they need.

A third project: the association has appropriated funds to boost social media to support industry marketing efforts.  The Committee will talk about the best themes for promoting residential modulars.

What should be the  differences in the way mods should be promoted  compared to manufactured homes.
The group meets twice yearly in conjunction with MHISC’s state meetings and consults via email in between.  The July 17 meeting will be at the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort.

Members interested in serving on the committee can contact markdillard@scmodularhome.com.

The current 2018-2019 committee is composed of leading manufacturers and residential builder / retailers serving South Carolina.  They include Bobby Hounsell, James Harrill, Mitch Howard, Kenny Hyatt, Dennis Jones,  Joe Manis, Tony Massarelli, Michael McLean, Art Newton, Rob Nunn, Mark Street, Chip Smith, Alan Trull, and Billy Woodard
