NWFA Announces Emerging Leaders Network

  St. Louis, MO–The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) is launching an Emerging Leaders Network to attract young talent who are passionate about the flooring trade and desire to keep the industry thriving.
  The network will kick off during an exclusive reception at NWFA Expo in Phoenix, AZ, scheduled for April 11–14, 2017. This reception will provide a unique opportunity for emerging leaders to connect with each other and NWFA’s existing leadership.
  The primary mission of the NWFA Emerging Leaders Network is to give young professionals a voice in the association and the wood flooring industry, as well as to provide opportunities to connect and build relationships through education, networking and close involvement with projects directly impacting NWFA’s leadership.
  Members involved in this group can:

  • Join meet ups annually at the Expo, as well as online conferences throughout the year
  • Play a critical role in implementing ideas into programs that will better serve young wood flooring professionals
  • Determine barriers among generations and develop solutions for a balanced workplace environment.

  The Emerging Leaders Council will oversee the strategy and activities of the Emerging Leaders Network.
  In order to become a part of the Emerging Leaders Network, young professionals must be members of the NWFA (or work for a member company) and be referred in by their employer or a member of the   Emerging Leaders Network or Council.
  For more information and to nominate a young professional, visit www.nwfa.org/emergingleaders.aspx. Inclusion in the network is free of charge.
