The Program Committee of NARI Silicon Valley is conducting an evaluation of our chapter meetings to better understand what you value in your business and remodeling industry education. We will use these results to improve our programming and benefits.


Thank you to our meeting co-sponsors, Brian Thompson Drywall and NARI Building Bucks via EnerBank USA, as well as those members and guests who attended. This 3rd annual social special event featured an evening of extended networking opportunities in the fun atmosphere of Campo Di Bocce Los Gatos. Attendees enjoyed great tasting Italian dishes, as well as rounds of bocce ball on 4 private indoor courts. A presentation by Mark Bernas of EnerbankUSA informed attendees of NARI's latest benefit NARIBuildingBucks. In addition, this event served as the start of an annual membership promotion drive until September 15 - NARI Silicon Valley chapter referring members and prospective members will receive great incentives when new memberships are approved.

Membership Drive Sponsored by: Enerbank USA/NARI BuildingBucks Program

When you walk into a customer’s home, you really don’t know if they’re going to be paying cash or some other way. If they say they're paying cash, it could be from a bank account, cashing out a CD, liquidating stocks, or some other method that could involve tax losses or other costs. The fact is, half of all home improvement projects over $5,000 are financed in some way, and offering your customer NARI BuildingBucks makes the sale easier, because it's not about affordability — it's about accommodating the customer’s money management.

NARI BuildingBucks is an exclusive payment options program from NARI with EnerBank USA that helps your customers get the project they really want today and helps you:

  • Improve Cash Flow
  • Increase Leads
  • Close More Sales
  • Reduce Cancellations
  • Increase Job Size
