PHRC Events

Tracy Dorman presented with the PBA Affiliate of the Year Award

Date: 7/30/2022

Congratulations to Tracy Dorman, the PHRC meeting & events coordinator, for winning the PBA Affiliate of the Year Award on July 23, 2022! 

During the PBA Summer Board of Directors meeting at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, PBA presented the annual association awards after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

Awards were presented to members and local associations in categories including Builder, Associate, and Affiliate of the Year as well as recognizing community service and media projects. PBA also recognized two longtime members with the Distinguished Achievement Award.

PBA members nominated individuals and projects earlier this year. After gathering the necessary information, the judges, who were appointed by the PBA President and represented Past Presidents, Builders, Associates, and Executive Officers, reviewed all nominees based on criteria developed by the PBA Awards Task Force in 2021.


Affiliate of the Year Award

Tracy Dorman (Central PA Builders Association)


Extremely deserving of the recognition, Dorman has served the home building industry for more than 20 years at the PHRC. During that time, she has served as a liaison with PBA, executive officers, local, state and federal government agencies, consultants, code officials, builders, and the public.

Dorman was instrumental in chartering the Central PA Professional Women in Building (PWB) Council and serves as chair. She is also the secretary of the PBA PWB Council.

During the 2022 PHRC Housing Conference, she was actively involved in bringing Mollie Elkman, author of the children’s book The House That She Built to the Celebrate Reception. During the reception, the Council sold signed children’s books, raising over $1,000 for scholarships.

Dorman has been committed to the PHRC’s mission and goals for the last 20 years as a team player putting in extra effort as necessary.
