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 joint meeting sponsors, Monark Premium Appliance Co. in Santa Clara and Miele Appliances, as well as ASID Peninsula for joining us again for our 3rd Annual Chopped Challenge Joint Chapter Meeting! Now let's send a thank you and high-fives to the Challenge teams, especially our 4 NARI Members, whose bios you will find below, John "Chop It Like It's Hot" Hammerschmidt, Mark "Red Hot Chili Prepper" Wagner, Patty "Slice, Slice Lady" Hayos, and Dan " Mr IncredEDIBLE" Bartel.

There was continued praise from members and guests who attended and had a fabulous time. Although NARI lost the challenge this year by a slim margin, we look forward to next year's event that I hear will have more added fun. Stay tuned! Monthly Chapter Meetings are open to all members and prospective members.
