Written By: Kathy Price-Robinson - Apr• 23•08

A new NARI chapter has formed in Los Angeles.A new chapter of NARI (the National Assn. of the Remodeling Industry) has started up in the Los Angeles area. There is an active NARI chapter in San Diego and more than 60 chapters nationwide.

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.

    The national decided a few years ago that it would officially be NAIR-ee. Yes, this was actually a subject of lengthy discussion at the national board meetings.
    KPR: Ha ha! Thanks for the enlightenment. I guess I need to change my ways!
