2018 NKBA 30 Under 30 Now Open for Nominations

May 16, 2017

The NKBA 30 Under 30 is now open for submissions. The 30 Under 30 Program celebrates the future of the kitchen and bath industry by selecting 30 outstanding young professionals who exemplify the next generation of industry experts. This annual program has left a lasting impact on the lives and careers of 30 under 30 alumni, who have had the opportunity to network with peers and important industry leaders.

New this year, winners will work in groups with program sponsors to solve specific business needs and present their solutions at KBIS 2018 in Orlando. They will then present their findings at their local NKBA chapter, highlighting their experience working with the sponsor company and with the program itself. They will also have the opportunity to live stream on social media, contribute to NKBA Connect blog posts and newsletter articles and help with student outreach.

“I think every young designer dreams about being published in national magazines, creating award-winning designs, and becoming a notable name in the industry,” says 2012 honoree Richard T. Anuszkiewicz, executive director of the kitchen and bath division for Alt Breeding Schwarz Architects in Annapolis, Md. “The 30 Under 30 program gave me the platform to achieve these goals.”
