Members of NARI include contractors, interior designers, architects, product suppliers, manufacturers and service providers. Several contractors in Southern California have long been members-at-large of the national organization, and some of them will now belong to the L.A. chapter.
According to Claudia Butler, vice president of the new chapter, "NARI’s mission is to promote the highest level of quality, professionalism and ethical business practices in the remodeling industry." Contractors who join must have a valid state contractor’s license or registration, liability and worker’s compensation insurance and must pledge to conduct business in compliance with NARI’s Code of Ethics.

P.S. Would you pronounce it NAR-ee, NAIR-ee? I go for the former, but I hear the latter quite often, especially from East Coasters.
