Don was appointed by Governor Jeb Bush in 2005 to the Construction Industry Licensing Board.
Don also serves on the board of Builders Care, an NAHB-sponsored non-profit organization providing home repairs for the elderly.

It's also due to the leadership of Division President Don Wilford.
Wilford is a third-generation builder and a longtime member of NEFBA. Not only has ICI distinguished itself as a homebuilder by being named in the top 100 builders nationwide by Builder Magazine, but Wilford has been recognized for his contribution to the community and the industry.
He was named mentor of the year by the State Attorney's Office (2005) and was the recipient of the national mentor of the year award (2006) from the National Mentoring Partnership organization in Washington.
NEFBA honored Wilford with the Dick Baker Award for humanitarian and community service (2005) and as its member of the year in 2006. Wilford also received a gubernatorial appointment to the Construction Industry Licensing Board and served as its vice chairman.
Wilford serves on both the NEFBA and the Builders Care boards of directors.
With that level of involvement and contribution, Wilford speaks from experience and with authority about surviving the downturn and the role of NEFBA as a vehicle for a strong industry.
"NEFBA is a remarkable institution," Wilford said.
Wilford sees this as a golden era of opportunity on several fronts, particularly young people searching for a career path and entrepreneurs with training and experience in the construction trades.
"The construction industry has suffered a larger-than-normal attrition rate among skilled workers and managers due to people leaving to find employment," he said. "And, with the slowdown, young people were not entering trade programs so there's now a six- to seven-year deficit. NEFBA's apprentice program and the construction management program at the University of North Florida both offer stable, lucrative career opportunities in a business that is once again growing."
Wilford credits NEFBA for the high standard of professionalism in Northeast Florida. During his tenure on the Construction Industry Licensing Board, Wilford said very few contractor violations were from Northeast Florida.
"NEFBA's influence raised the standard of ethical, professional conduct in the industry in this area," he said. "I believe that's something NEFBA members and leadership can be proud of."
NEFBA's charitable programs, too, reflect its high standard of philanthropy and giving back to the community, Wilford said.
"Builders Care is a prime example of how we touch lives by helping eradicate substandard housing and restoring not just a dwelling but quality of life for those in need," he said.
"I believe members like Don Wilford and ICI Homes make this association the standard-setting, outreaching influence it is. Don is always willing to help above and beyond what is asked of him, and we salute him for being an outstanding contributor to this association and for his company's support as a Pinnacle Award builder."
