NARI business resolutions

For the bulk of the remodeling community, they will be glad to close the books on 2012 and look ahead to growing business in 2013. As the world continues to spin, NARI members pause to evaluate what’s happened over the past year and plan their New Year’s resolutions for future business success.


A look ahead from NARI Lobbyist

2013 will be a busy year for NARI in Washington D.C.  Fiscal issues will continue to dominate debate on Capitol Hill in the wake of the “taxmageddon” negotiations that marked the end of the 112th Congress.  America’s struggle to work its way out of a recession will translate into Senators and Congressmen debating frequently on taxes and spending.


Why Certify?

The Certified Remodeler (CR) education program is designed to recognize and identify full service remodeling professionals who have undergone detailed review and testing in areas of businessmanagement, technical skills and ethical conduct.


Jobsite safety first

When it comes to safety, Doug Hanna, president of S & H Construction Inc., in Cambridge Mass., doesn’t mess around.  Hanna has seen his share of on-the-job injuries during the course of the 33 years his company has been in business—some minor and some major. “It’s a dangerous business,” Hanna says. “You can’t protect against everything.”


NARI congratulates December’s newly certified members

NARI members looking to further their professionalism—as well as to add another tool to their marketing arsenal—often get certified in one of NARI’s nine subject areas. These certifications measure your knowledge base, not your attendance at a class.


NARI’s green education program introduces a different way of thinking

Hallie Bowie, GCP, architect and owner of New Leaf Home Design, based in Akron, Ohio, earned her Green Certified Professional (GCP) designation through NARI in 2007 when it was first introduced to the remodeling community. Back then, Bowie says, green remodeling was a “new thing.”
