Annemarie Mitchell, president and CEO of
Legacy Timber Frames in Stillwater, was honored
as the Member of the Year for the Professional
Women in Building (PWB) Council of the National
Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
Professional Women in Building members
work in all aspects of the building industry–as
owners, builders, remodelers, architects, suppliers,
marketing experts, designers and in finance
and real estate.
Mitchell was instrumental in forming a local
PWB council at the Capital Region Builders &
Remodelers Association (CRBA), and served as
the chairwoman for the council for four years.
More recently she served as president of
CRBA for two years and she remains an active
member in both the local and state associations.
She has received the CRBA Builder of the Year
Award and the Three-Legged Stool Award from
the New York State Builders Association honoring
her commitment to the building industry at
the local, state and national levels.
Mitchell also serves as the chairwoman of
the NAHB PWB area trustees committee and
coordinates outreach efforts that support and
bridge local and national endeavors.
Mitchell has dedicated her time and resources
to several community development projects and
community service organizations, including
donating the labor to make the timber frame
portion of the bridge for the historic Lock 19
project, volunteering on an Extreme Makeover:
Home Edition project, participating in a support
group for cancer survivors and patients, among
“Annemarie’s enthusiasm and dedication to her
local PWB and the national council has greatly
contributed to their success,” said 2015 NAHB
PWB Chairwoman Carole Jones, who presented
the award during the 2016 NAHB International
Builders’ Show in Las Vegas. “We are extremely
proud of Annemarie for all she had done and
continues to do for our association.”
