economy,” said Williford.
The goals are as follows:
1. The association will provide targeted professional development courses across all industry segments.
2. The 2009 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show, April 30 to May
3 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, will
provide a variety of business conference sessions.
3. Enable members to reduce their expenses and increase
revenues through third-party affinity programs.
4. Renew a focus on leadership opportunities for members.
