“Now when I have a question about a product, I can just call the company representative and get my answers quickly rather than waiting for the telephone chain through my suppliers. Going to the meetings and keeping up to date on the latest products and techniques seem to give me an edge over the competition.” ~Bruce Verblaauw, C. Verblaauw & Sons, LLC
“I joined NADRA at the urging of a friend and business competitor who was already a member. The first few meetings proved the value of membership through the peer-networking available at each meeting, and the guest speakers, who ranged from attorneys to engineers to marketing gurus.” ~Gary Daley, America’s Deck Builder , LLC
