On October 14, 1884, George Eastman received a patent on his new paper-strip photographic film. The man and his company (Eastman Kodak) changed the way that photography played a role in the lives of people all over the world.

Kim recently announced that he hopes to transition out of the SFAHBA Executive Officer position by the end of 2018. In what many characterize as an amazing ten years since Kim went from being the association’s Board President in 2008, to assuming the Executive Officer duties, Kim noted that it “has been an honor and a privilege to serve our members and our industry on a local, state, and national level.” Kim intends to stay active as a SFAHBA builder member and will continue to volunteer on many levels. Rey will review many of Kim’s accomplishments while serving as the association’s Executive Officer, as well as obtain his thoughts on next steps in his ongoing commitment to the community.
