NKBA Launches Program for Sponsorships

Hackettstown, NJ Members of the National Kitchen & Bath Association can now sponsor any one of more than 25 programs and events offered throughout the year as part of the association's newly-launched Member Partnership Program, the NKBA announced.

According to the NKBA, which is headquartered here, partnership possibilities are available in five distinct categories: Professional Development, National Kitchen & Bath Conference and the Kitchen/ Bath Industry Show (K/BIS), Design Activities/Promotional Opportunities, Chapter and Leadership Development, and Scholarships and Endowments.

"Supporting the association and its programs can be beneficial to all parties involved," commented NKBA president Stephanie Witt, CKD, CBD.

"The number of programs is abundant, and our partners' efforts can help build value and strength for the kitchen and bath industry, while complementing the association's efforts of building awareness for the finest professionals in the kitchen and bath industry."

Witt added that the NKBA is attempting to expand its research options "and deliver essential, future-focused educational opportunities and products."

For example, the association has retooled its educational programming in 2000, and has expanded its Endorsed College Program, for which scholarships can be offered in a sponsoring company's name, Witts pointed out.

"With over 75 more schools added to this year's schedule, sponsors can reach an unlimited number of designers with product demonstrations and personal conversations," Witt said, adding that funds are also being allocated for "studies and reports designed to enhance the knowledge base of the entire industry."

"We're very excited about the possibilities sponsorship has for the NKBA and its members," 
Witt said.
