Associations partner to provide resources

Publish date:

The North American Association of Flooring Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and the North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) have partnered during the COVID-19 pandemic to bring forth resources and programs to meet the specific needs of the distribution channel.

“Since the start of the impact of COVID-19 on the distribution business community, both associations have focused on providing members with relevant content on human resource management best practices, tapping into federal loans and relief offerings, monitoring state-by-state limits on construction trades as well as tracking economic trends,” the groups said in a statement.

“Additionally, a great deal of guidance has been provided in the area of adjusting sales and marketing strategies during these unusual times. Finally, the associations have focused on helping distribution and manufacturing executives lead during times of uncertainty. NAFCD and NBMDA have tapped into a wealth of content produced by their rosters of strategic partners that include leading distribution consultants, trainers and thought leaders.”
