Hello to my industry friends. What an Amazing Night!
The Columbia River Chapter of the NKBA rocks. Not only did I get a chance to see some great friends, but the professionalism and friendliness of the group is incredible. Award winners told their secrets to getting projects submitted correctly, helping them to be considered in competition. Marketing secrets were shared by those who have spent considerable time researching and learning how to be more effective. Potential new members were welcomed and offered a place in the group. Tips were shared on getting projects published. Encouragement and help was offered to everyone to improve their skills and knowledge through study groups. Acknowledgement was given to those who have received their credentials, reminding us all how important it is that we continue to grow in our chosen professions.I must express my gratitude to all who serve on the Board, giving a great amount of time, creativity, and energy. Thanks also to the companies who support this industry by sponsoring meetings. Thanks to Pental for a beautiful meeting location, great food, nice door prizes, and lots of fun. --Kaye Powell (Chown Hardware)
