Monthly Chapter Meeting open to all members and prospective members. Join us for networking, dinner and an educational program! Come earn 1 of your Meta participation credits or a CEU!

Membership Orientation

This can be a great way to learn more about NARI membership and what it can do for you. Then feel free to mix and mingle with people before the dinner and program begins.

If you would rather wait until your next meeting, that's just fine. We will continue offering Orientations at each monthly chapter meeting.

If interested in attending, can either select the option during registration or email the NARI-SV office at

Topic: WARNING! Most Benchmarks Are Useful And Irrelevant

Benchmarks can be a great way to gauge how well your business is doing, or not doing. Used correctly they will help you drive towards that pinnacle of business success that you’ve set for yourself. Too often benchmarks can be as demotivating as they can be motivating. 

There are two kinds of benchmarks; those that are useful and those that are relevant. Of all the benchmarks you’ve read about or have been taught most are useful and irrelevant. 

Most are derived from comparisons with others on the same industry. What if you couldn’t get information about our competitors performance; How would we know we are not simply mediocre when we think we’re a success? What if your way of running your business is different from your competitors. How does that affect the benchmarks? 

Whether you’re a general contractor, a supplier, a sub-contractor, a designer or an architect. Join us for this presentation to learn:

  • What the 3 relevant measures of success are. What kind of business you have doesn’t matter.
  • Why they matter.
  • What drives them.
  • What to do to improve in each one.
  • Leave more energized than when you arrived.
Speaker: Eamon Rooney is a strategic leadership coach and long time chapter member. His focus is to enable exceptional leadership that drive business success. He also is the author of an international best selling book - Get Naked: How to crate a business you love through radical transparency.
