Hello and happy new year to all. We thank you again for your continued support of the NKBA Manhattan chapter. We're looking forward to another exciting year.
This past January, several Board members attended the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), and we were delighted with this fabulous showcase of all things kitchen and bath. We hope you were there in Orlando to experience it all. We are also pleased to report that the Manhattan chapter was again an award-winning chapter at KBIS. Out of 60 chapters nationwide we received the Chapter Star Award for Best Chapter Program for our hugely successful "Design Unleashed" program. Many thanks to former VP Programs Chris Prince and VP Professional Development Dave Burcher for this dynamic program.
In addition, our own VP Membership, now VP Communications, Toni Sabatino, won an Ambassador award for her tireless promotion in enlisting members in the NKBA.
And finally, our new VP Programs, Dawn DeLuca, won the Chapter Star Award for Best Chapter Officer, Chapter Representative, Westchester Chapter. We congratulate them, and we are proud that they are members of our Board.
So we begin 2017 with praise and thankfulness and the wind at our back. Keep an eye out for future announcements and do RSVP for our events as soon as possible. See you soon!
