Yenrick to Lead NLBMDAWINSTON-SALEM, NC -– Chris Yenrick, COO of Smith Phillips Building Supply, was elected first vice chair of the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) at the ProDealer Industry Summit in San Antonio, TX.

“Our industry is faced with a prolonged collapse of the housing economy which is creating very tough business conditions for lumberyards across the county," Yenrick said. "NLMBDA’s mission becomes even more important to help prevent onerous regulations and serve as a congressional watchdog for our industry’s interest on Capitol Hill and beyond.”

The NLBMDA represents the national interests of its members in Washington DC. The association has more than 6,000 members operating single or multiple lumber yards and component plants.
