Greg MiedemaGregory Miedema, CAPS, CGB, CGP, CGR, EO of the HBA of Northern Colorado and past chair of NAHB Remodelers, died July 16 after an 11-year battle with cancer.

Mr. Miedema wrote stories for industry publications and won awards from NAHB and other organizations for his business management and public relations expertise. He found a second career in association management after founding and owning an Arizona contracting company, Rushmore Remodeling, for 24 years. During that time, he became involved in the Southern Arizona HBA in Tucson.

Soon, Mr. Miedema began to serve on the national level as a member of the NAHB Remodelers Board of Trustees, an NAHB Executive Board member, and chair of the NAHB Remodelers Council in 2009. He was also active in helping to craft NAHB Education programs and proud to display his NAHB educational designations.

After serving on the Southern Arizona HBA staff, Mr. Miedema moved to Colorado to take the Northern Colorado HBA leadership position in 2012, where he served the community until late June.

“As a past chair, Greg offered guidance to our current leadership and was a staunch supporter of offering only the best in services and developing professionalism among our members,” said 2018 NAHB Remodelers Chair Joanne Theunissen.

“His absence at NAHB Remodelers meetings will be met with sadness and we will feel the void,” she said. “I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have known and worked alongside him. Greg will be sorely missed among our ranks, and will be remembered only with friendship, respect and fondness.”

Funeral services are pending. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society. Letters of condolence can be sent to Mr. Miedema’s sister, Jennifer Genant, at 407 S. 4th Street, Parkston, SD 57366.

    Godspeed, sir, you will be missed. I was fortunate enough to schedule you to lead a construction course for the BIA Baldy View in Southern California, in 2006, and I will never forget your professionalism, your organization and quite clearly, your passion for our industry. We’ve all lost a good man. Rest in peace.
