Member benefits will now include discounted pricing on vehicles
Des Plaines, Illinois, Dec. 18, 2014 —The National Association of the Remodeling Industry, NARI, is excited to introduce a new partnership with Chrysler Group LLC, which will provide a new member benefit program.
Through this partnership, NARI member business owners, their employees and their family members at the same residence, may receive a $500 cash allowance toward the purchase or lease of select 2014 Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram Truck and FIAT brand vehicles.

Ulreich, NARI CEO. “In addition, the ‘One the Job’ program will allow them to easily brand that new vehicle or add new equipment to make it work-ready at a reduced cost.
