Benefits of NARI Membership:
Through NARI, members have seen measurable increases in their businesses by building their personal and professional relationships and networks. Successful businesspeople surround themselves with other successful people. NARI is an excellent platform from which to build this network of “contacts of influence” in the remodeling and adjacent industries.

EXCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE among experienced professionals. NARI of Greater Charlotte members regularly seek advice and counsel from other members on issues facing their businesses. NARI Members operate as peers, not adversaries and see the value in lifting up members and their businesses.
NARI offers opportunities to exchange knowledge through:
-WIN (Women in NARI) Functions
-Dinner Meeting Seminars
RECOGNITION/VALIDATION As a contractor, being able to compete locally and nationally in the Contractor of the Year awards is a true measure of how your work compares to other accomplished industry leaders. Subcontractors, suppliers, vendors and employees can gain similar recognition as team members providing value to these awarded projects.
NARI presents an annual Evening of Excellence to celebrate the CotY Awards and recognize outstanding individuals in the Charlotte Remodeling community through its Superlative Awards.
Take a look at our 2022 CotY event.
COMMUNITY NARI of Greater Charlotte supports our local community year-round! We provide networking opportunities through great events and donate portions of the proceeds for local causes.
Golf Tournament: Our annual Golf Tournament benefits The Jim Harkey Memorial Fund, which in turn, awards scholarships to young people interested in careers in remodeling or NARI family members.
Charlotte Rescue Mission: Our donations to The Jim Harkey Memorial Fund also support the Charlotte Rescue Mission through 5th Tuesdays. Every month with a 5th Tuesday, we provide, cook, and serve a meal to the guests at the Men's Shelter in our efforts to serve the Charlotte community.
ETHICS NARI is the trusted source in remodeling. Educated consumers see the value of the NARI logo. All members must abide by the NARI Code of Ethics.
EDUCATION/CERTIFICATIONS Our strong relationship with NARI National will continue to provide our members the opportunity and resources to stay ahead of the curve in the remodeling industry. NARI National offers nationally recognized certifications to members and accreditations to companies. As well, our local chapter offers educational opportunities through speakers and events throughout the year.
ADVOCACY NARI lobbyists provide our membership and industry a "seat at the table" and "voice" when it comes to legislation that affects our livelihood and future.
BRANDING In addition to attaching our brand to good works in the community, NARI Charlotte has numerous local media partners that continue to advance and promote the NARI Charlotte brand and the businesses that are associated with it. Attaching the NARI brand to your business assures consumers that you believe in the ethics, quality, and professionalism for which NARI stands.
We're doing things right, as proven by winning FIVE of the last Seven NARI National Chapter of Excellence Awards at the annual National Spring Business Meeting.
From an architect: During these first eight months of our membership, we have made new connections to provide our services as well as hiring several NARI members for our own home and business. Even in the turbulent times of 2020, we have found that our investment of time and money into NARI has given us a fantastic return. It would be fair to say that without the new connections I have made in the past 16 months with NARI, our business would be on an entirely different track, and not nearly as successful
From a contractor/remodeler: "The ability to hang out and talk business shop, successes and struggles, with other business leaders, is the most rewarding education possible. I attribute a tremendous amount of my business successes to this fact."
From a sub-contractor: "Through the relationships we have generated from our membership in NARI and various professional speakers, we have gained a wealth of industry knowledge. We also know that when we are asked to complete a project with a NARI professional, we are dealing with a first class organization that will perform a first class project. NARI has been instrumental in our organization's growth since the inception of our membership."
From a supplier: "NARI has offered me personal and professional growth, from the relationships to the opportunities to work with a group on a common mission to improve the remodeling industry. The relationships formed have also generated additional business opportunities for my company."
