Certification, is it important? You decide. How much does it contribute to your knowledge? ….profession? …..confidence?...bottom line? Miami Valley NARI chapter has one of the highest concentrations of certified remodelers in the country and is one of the most successful chapters in the country. Coincidence? The time has come to make a decision about whether you or any of your people are going to go for certification this year. We have to get the materials ordered and the classes set up. We can’t do that until we know who all will be participating. The Miami Valley and Ohio Valley chapters are working together on certification studies and testing. The Catch 22; We need to know who will be participating to decide where sessions will be held while you need to know where the sessions will be held in order to decide if you will participate. Call (937) 222-6274 or email Fred at the NARI office and give your input. It is important!

Keep your head down … or at least your eyes open for details of this year’s Miami Valley NARI Golf Outing. Perhaps “Keep your head down” may be more of a defensive posture than a basic of the golf swing come September 19th at Beavercreek Golf Club, but who can’t have fun at a golf outing? Sponsors and Player needed.
