The Cabinet Makers Association added a new membership program for distributors at the North American Building Material Distribution Association annual convention, held Nov. 1-3 in Chicago.
“Currently, our membership is made up primarily of 20 or fewer employee operations, with the vast majority of those being one- to five-person shops,” CMA executive director Amanda Conger said at the NBMDA member meeting. “I believe that our members are either already customers of yours, or if they aren’t — then they should be.”
According to Conger, the CMA has seen an 11 percent increase in membership this year. “With the help of the NBMDA, we can grow even more,” she added.
The CMA’s new membership rate for distributors is $425 annually and connects NBMDA members to the CMA’s growing network of professionals. “We believe that collaboration, not competition, is the best way to improve each individual company as well as the industry as a whole,” Conger said.
“NBMDA is excited to partner with the CMA and help them grow their distributor membership roster,” NMBDA executive vice president Kevin Gammonley said in a statement. “Strengthening small cabinet shops is in the best interest of the distributor community who serve them and thus NBMDA is committed to supporting the CMA.”
