I want to thank everyone who attended the awards dinner and helped to make it a total success. It was great seeing all of our members and reps having a great time. So that being said, this is a perfect time to dig out that card from a sponsoring material rep or distributors’ rep gave you and reach out to them and make a connection. After all that’s what it’s all about; helping one another to reach our fullest potential. If you can help a supplier, distributor or manufacturer that supports NADRA they will see the benefit and continue to support us. Thank you to our $2,500 sponsors: Fiberon & Trex & to our $500 Sponsors: AZEK, TimberTech, Mid-State Lumber, RDI, FastenMaster & Fortress Railing Products.
I would also like to thank the sponsor members who used their complimentary tickets to invite new members to the event. I hope they had a blast and want to stay involved with NADRA and continue to contribute. This organization is our competitive advantage in the industry. The more we support the sponsoring members the stronger it will be.
Lastly, thanks to all the event sponsors and to the NJ BOD, Jennifer Sheridan from Phoenix, Lainie Sleppin from Lainie’s LBM and NADRA HQ for all the hard work making this event happen!
I wish you the best of luck in the upcoming building season and pray it stops snowing soon.
