The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), the established leading resource of information and education for remodelers and other professionals involved in the remodeling industry, has named LBM Journal its official publication for the lumber and building material distribution channel.
As part of its role as NARI's official publication for the distribution channel, LBM Journal will support the association with advertising and regular editorial opportunities. In addition, NARI and LBM Journal will coordinate on other educational, research and outreach initiatives to benefit their members and readers, respectively.
"With many homeowners choosing to stay put and enhance their existing homes, remodelers have emerged as a tremendously important customer segment for our subscribers--lumber/building material dealers," says Rick Schumacher, LBM Journal editor and publisher. "LBM Journal is committed to providing the tools and insights that our readers need in order to serve their customers most effectively. This relationship with NARI will enable us to provide our readers with a direct connection to the largest network of professional remodelers in the country. I'm proud of this recognition from NARI, and very much look forward to working together to strengthen our industry."

"By working with LBM Journal, we can educate the nation's largest audience of lumber/building material dealers about how to work more efficiently within the remodeling community, as well as boost the involvement of dealers and distributors in our association--which will be good for the entire industry."
