During the Spring 2013 House of Delegates meeting, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named immediate past president Dean Herriges, MCR, CKBR of Urban Herriges & Sons Inc. in Mukwonago, Wis., as its chairman of the board and elevated Art Donnelly, MCR, CKBR, of Legacy Builders & Remodelers Corp. in Mount Sinai, N.Y. to the office of president.
As Herriges enters his new position as chair of the Board of Directors, he has a renewed outlook on the industry. “This has been a transitional year for the remodeling industry, coming out of a challenging economic climate into a growth period,” he said. “NARI has strengthened strategic alliances, launched a research program and continued representation in Washington and is focused on sustaining future growth of NARI member businesses as the recovery continues.”
The remaining officers, also elected and announced during the meeting, include: President-Elect Kevin Anundson, CR, CKBR, of Owner Assisted Remodeling, in Elm Grove, Wis., Treasurer Judy Mozen CR, GCP, of Handcrafted Homes, Inc., in Roswell, Ga., and Secretary H. Dale Contant, MCR, UDCP, of Atlanta Design & Build, Marietta, Ga.
Paula C. Goedert of Barnes & Thornburg LLP in Chicago serves as general counsel and Mary Busey Harris, CAE, as NARI’s executive vice president for its national headquarters. The elections took place at the Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza, in Kansas City, Mo., on Apr. 13, 2013.
