From the President’s Desk
Christy Bowen, 2021 Austin NARI President

In 2012, I was looking to join an organization to increase my knowledge and grow my connections. Little did I know that I would come upon a trade association that would offer me that, plus so much more. I looked at several associations and decided to join Austin NARI because of its understanding of synergism in partnerships, its investment in its members, and its dedication to upholding the remodeling industry’s integrity.

NARI offers so much to its members. Not only does it provide certification courses, continuing education, and national award recognition, but it is a marketing powerhouse offering its members access to such compelling campaigns as ‘Remodeling Done Right.’ It is a stalwart presence on Capitol Hill fighting for our industry’s rights and needs. It is a trailblazer to finding a solution to the labor shortage through cooperative initiatives with other trade associations such as the NKBA and the NAHB. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. No other organization is focused singularly on the remodeling industry and its efforts on reaching the highest standard of professionalism, education, ethics, and homeowner satisfaction.

I am proud to be an Austin NARI Member and your 2021 Chapter President. This year, I’m eager to embark on this journey and pioneer fresh trails in an unprecedented time to continue the work of NARI in finding new ways to Do Remodeling Right. I hope you will join in with me!

Dutifully yours,
Christy M. Bowen CKBD, UDCP
2021 President
