Meet Melissa Farrar with Washington Gas Company, Inc.
Melissa, tell us a little about your company:
WGL provides safe, reliable natural gas service to DC, Maryland and Virginia.
When and why did you join NVBIA?
Being a member and business partner of NVBIA allows us to build stronger relationships with the residential builder community to help them provide the service their customers want most – affordable, efficient and reliable energy.
As the builder community’s Gas Business Relationship Manager, I’m committed to being there every step of the way, being a reliable resource, answering your questions in a timely manner and coordinating the logistics for service connection to make sure your project is completed to your satisfaction.
Being the liaison between the home builders and the departments within Washington Gas, it is my goal to bridge the communication gap, assist in navigating different areas and being the ‘glue’ that keeps us working together.
How are you involved with NVBIA?
Getting involved is key to success! I’m President of the Women in the Building Industry (WBI), member of the Membership Committee, Retention Committee and Associates Committee.
What is something you would say to a future member about NVBIA?
NVBIA is the association of choice if you want to be connected with the builder community of Northern Virginia. If you want to take advantage of being a member you need to get involved, attend events, and join committees.
When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time?
I enjoy cooking.. so I would probably be trying out a new recipe!
Please share your favorite quote.
