The evening began with the installation of the 2017 EM NARI President, Kathy DeMeyer, of Encore Construction, as well as the new chapter Board of Directors. A special thanks to our dinner sponsor, Chris Zizza and 1st Quality Discount Flooring.
President’s Message: There is a shortage of skilled worked in the remodeling industry. One initiative of EM NARI is to evaluate ways we, as an organization, can attract new workers to our industry. Our first initiative will be to start a new committee focused on being proactive; it will be called the Workforce Development Committee. This committee will be charged with identifying target populations for outreach, making connections with chapter members, and creating pathways to grow future workers and businesses.
The Program: The evening featured a panel of four members discussing “How to Attract and Keep Quality Employees.”
