CHICAGO – The North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA)  said that as an addedbenefit, all members now receive a 50 percent discount on joining the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) for a limited time. 

NAFCD is the trade association serving wholesale distributors handling all types of flooring and flooring accessories representing the leading distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada. NBMDA and NAFCD have co-sponsored an annual convention each November for the past seven years.

As part of the reciprocal agreement, NAFCD will be offering a 50 percent discount on NBMDA membership dues to all NAFCD members who join NBMDA. The new agreement is expected to grow membership for both organizations and further cements their long-time partnership designed to increase member value.

NAFCD and NBMDA are highly complementary organizations. There is growing interest in firms belonging to both associations as distributors continue to diversify their product mix,” commented NBMDA Executive Vice President, Kevin Gammonley. “Manufacturers of such products as adhesives, abrasives, wood finishes & coatings, and countertops sell into both distribution channels and thus have an interest in joining both associations.”

The NAFCD-NBMDA partnership continues to strengthen and evolve. “We’re very excited about this new offering and expect that members of both associations will take advantage of this unique opportunity,” noted Gammonley.
