NADRA NJ update from the president, Lainie Sleppin
NADRA
From the president: Our last meeting was excellent. We had over 30 attendees. In fact we had 33 people attend.

What pleased me the most was the blend of builders vs. distributor’s vs. manufactures vs. retailers. It was an awesome mix of all levels of the channel.

Our sponsor FastenMaster did an absolute wonderful presentation. In place of just talking about fasteners they explained ways to utilize social media through their company. Certainly an opportunity for builders & retailers to create value for themselves. They offered our members a few nice opportunities to not only self-promote but to earn some free product. Again it was wonderful information for all levels present at the meeting. Read more here.

Deck support: It's what's beneath the surface that counts
BPT via Seaside Courier
The substructure of your deck is the heart of its durability and the foundation for its aesthetics. Until recently, wood was the go-to material for builders and contractors but many professionals are now switching to steel for its superior structural integrity and design flexibility.

Trade show marketing effort soars into rebranding campaign
By Karin Roberts
Creating a trade show marketing strategy and integrating branding throughout the collateral materials can build a new brand image and achieve results for any client. Let's take a look at how Stewart Industries International (SII) approached this effort and the results of that change. SII, a reseller of used and consigned aircraft, had recently added a new business service and was planning to participate in a trade show event to showcase this new service. The problem was that the company's marketing materials had not been touched since their creation 20 years ago.

How to avoid a bodaciously bad graphics gaffe
By Brie Ragland
Marketing and communications is a tricky business. With duties ranging from writing press releases and speech scripts to creating marketing collateral and handling event promotions, succeeding in a marketing communications role can be as stressful as being the face of the company. If you're not careful, you might just accidentally let something questionable slip past your usually-mistake-catching eye. Take for instance this recent jaw-dropping Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie poster incident (a real cowabunga no-no).
