NADRA New Jersey Chapter holds first meeting of 2011 on Wednesday, Jan. 19
It's time for our first New Jersey Chapter NADRA meeting of 2011! Please join us in starting a new year. We have so many things to look forward to in decking this year: new colors, new accessories, even more involvement from manufacturers and distributors, an organization that gets stronger and better with every new member and so much more!
Deck season starts now! Yes, there may be snow on the ground. Mr. & Mrs. Homeowner may not be thinking of their brand new deck at this minute. However, planning starts now. Be ready when the weather breaks. Be ready for the phone to ring. It's time to be proactive in growing your business and that starts with your participation in your local NADRA Chapter.
Our first meeting of 2011 will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 19, at the following location: Myles F. Kelly, Inc/Chatham 100 Summit Ave. Chatham, N.J. 07928 973-635-9000

We look forward to seeing you there! Don't forget 'The Power of One' — if everyone brings one potential new member, our growth is limitless. Bring a potential new member!

Split Decision: The decking market is skewing toward high- and low-end products
ProSales Magazine Share
The product itself may be flat, but the key shape in decking's future is a dumbbell. That's how decking experts predict the sales chart for their market will look in coming years.
