A message from the President:

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) is a not-for-profit professional trade association whose members are dedicated to assuring the consumer has a positive remodeling experience. Our membership is a mix of full-service contractors, design-build firms, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, subcontractors, lenders, and other related professionals.

The benefits of being a NARI member are many and as with any trade organization, it must improve the way you do business or improve your bottom line – NARI-Houston does both of these.

First of all, NARI on the National and local level is all about education. Education that will help you run your business better, keep with the new laws and codes, thru monthly lunch meetings, certification programs (seven categories), on-line business courses thru Remodeling University, tele-seminars on marketing, time management and a host of other topics.

Second, there are opportunities to network with other NARI members at the monthly meetings or vendor nights. NARI members use the services of other NARI members – "People Helping People". When working with a NARI member, you know you are dealing with an ethical businessman.

Third, your company is marketed thru the NARI phone line when people call looking for a contractor. Your company is listed on the NARI website which is not only viewed by people in the Houston area by by those who are moving to Houston and need the new home remodeled prior to move in. If you have a website – it is "hot-linked" from your NARI listing – for free!! Your company is also listed on the NARI National website.

Fourth, your company is listed in the "Remodeling Resource Guide", the chapter membership roster. The guide is handed out at ten home shows each year. These are people who are looking to remodel and are in need of a contractor, a captive audience. This is also FREE to NARI members. In 2013, we passed out 50,000 copies of our Membership Directory at home shows, direct mailings, and a citywide distribution network.

In short, NARI membership will in one way or another, add dollars to your bottom line. Something all business owners desire or we wouldn’t be in business. I can easily say that NARI membership has either saved or helped me gain thousands of dollars over the years.
