How do I know whether I'm within the radius of joining a chapter or as a member-at-large?

Go to the homepage of the website, and click on Find a Local Chapter.  You will be able to see if there are any chapters in your area, and if you are more than 70 miles away from the nearest chapter, you would join as a member-at large.

They are members that joins national directly without having a local chapter affiliation.  This occurs when a joining company is located more than 70 miles away from an existing chapter.

What is NARI's Green Remodeling Program all about?

A remodeler who has completed NARI’s Green Remodeling Program will have gained an in-depth overview of the green remodeling processes.  It gives the contractor a competitive edge in this increasingly popular segment of remodeling.  For more information on our Green Remodeling program, please click here.

My company is a member. Can I join as an individual?

NARI memberships are by company not by individual. If your company is a member, you are automatically a part of the organization. If you leave that company and are hired by another, you may initiate a company membership through that company.

What is this marketing campaign all about?
Driving leads for NARI members and raising awareness of NARI members to consumers. This campaign was designed to reinforce the benefits of choosing a NARI member, showcasing the importance of honesty, trust and dependability, which is even more important than ever in these distressful economic times.
Back to Top
Is this a print, broadcast or online campaign?
There are print and web ads that will drive readers to NARI branded web pages for in-depth information, web based videos (to be posted on YouTube and other video sites) about the importance of using a NARI member, and to search for NARI members by location and specialty. Search engine optimization (SEO) tactics have also been built in to the campaign.
Back to Top
What do you mean by SEO tactics?
The web pages are optimized so that, for instance, a homeowner searching for “Remodeler Philadelphia area” will be brought to a web page where they will find NARI members in the Philadelphia area by specialty and zip code.  The page is designed to come up toward the top of an online search so the user can find NARI members first for their remodeling needs.
Back to Top
Where will the ads appear?
On the national level, these ads will appear both in print and online utilizing special interest shelter magazines.  Locally, chapters should  use the ads in publications and web properties where they advertise.
Back to Top
What about online advertising?
We are utilizing both online ads and search engine optimization tactics to drive the remodel ready homeowner to pages where they will find NARI members.
Back to Top
Can chapters use these ads?
Yes, and are encouraged to use them.  All the ads are designed to be customized for local use.  Chapter use will help strengthen the impact of the NARI message, and ultimately, our collective results. 
Back to Top
When can we get the ads to use?
Back to Top
Are the ads a standard size?
The ads have been produced in several common sizes but can be resized to meet chapter needs.
Back to Top
What about tv ads?
We aren’t at a point where budget monies are available to purchase air time, however, one of the featured ad tools is a multi part series of short online videos. These entertaining yet educational videos showcase NARI’s high Standards of Practice, Code of Ethics, ongoing education and customer testimonials.  We will encourage all chapters and members to use the NARI “Living” logo on their own websites, which includes an embedded link to these videos.
