NARI Elects New Officers for 2013-2014 During its 2013 spring business 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, he has expressed a re-energized outlook on the industry. "This has been a strong, 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 is focused on sustaining future growth of NARI member businesses as the recovery continues."

Donnelly assumed the role of president after serving as president-elect and treasurer in the past year. For the upcoming year, Donnelly is focused on refining NARI's direction and the direction of the industry, drawing from shifts in remodeling trends and technological advancements.

"We're re-evaluating NARI's 2010 Strategic Plan to ensure full representation of our vision and goals in the new remodeling climate," said Donnelly. "In addition, NARI will encourage professionalism in the industry through increased awareness and commitment to the highest standards in members. Finally, I hope to continue to advance our legislative agenda and member participation to support our industry in a year of predicted growth."

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.
