Lunch & Learn

After months of no meeting capabilities, the NARI Board of Directors decided to implement a virtual “Lunch and Learn” program over the winter. We are offering a number of great sessions and topics that are FREE to you, your staff, and any partners you have in the building industry (feel free to distribute!).

Connection information will come out the week before each offering so you can join us!

No reservations needed! Just join us for the sessions you are interested in.

All sessions will begin at noon at end by 1 p.m. on the date noted. Zoom connection information will come out just prior to the training.

Free to NARI members & our invited guests. For more information, contact the NARI office at (208) 322-8191.

Please thank our sponsor for the Lunch & Learns: Remodelers Advantage.
