Dean Herriges, MCR, CKBR, owner of Urban Herriges & Sons in Mukwonago, Wis. and long-time Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council Inc., member, was elected President of NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) National at the association’s annual spring business meeting board of delegates meeting held Sat., April 21, in Grapevine, Tex.
Having served in a variety of capacities for NARI National and the local Milwaukee chapter, including a two-year stint as president, Herriges currently serves on the Milwaukee/NARI board of directors.
He assumed the role of NARI National president after serving as president-elect for the past year. His experience in NARI leadership includes having served on NARI National’s Executive Committee for the past six years.
“My focus this year is three-pronged,” Herriges said. “First, NARI is committed to enhancing member value by providing innovative technologies designed to help members achieve greater business success. Next, we are expanding our industry presence and our voice in Washington through development of a research program that focuses on industry trends and the profile of NARI members. Finally, we will continue to push the NARI name and values associated with hiring NARI members to consumers.”
NARI is the only trade association dedicated solely to the remodeling industry. The Association, which represents 7,000 member companies nationwide—comprised of 63,000 remodeling contractors— is “The Voice of the Remodeling Industry.”™
The Milwaukee Chapter of NARI, the largest of the 57 local chapters across the country with over 800 members has been the area’s leading home improvement and remodeling industry resource for more than 50 years.
The Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council was chartered in July 1961, as a Chapter of the National Home Improvement Council. In May of 1982, the National Home Improvement Council merged with the National Remodelers Association to form NARI ⎯ the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
The Council’s goals of encouraging ethical conduct, sound business practices, and professionalism in the remodeling industry have led to the growth of the remodeling industry nationwide and made NARI a recognized authority in that industry.
