Madison Wisconsin, April 4, 2011 — The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) awarded the NARI Madison Chapter, in Madison, Wisconsin, a National Achievement Award in the category of Local Chapter Excellence. This is an unprecedented awarding two years in a row!

The Madison Chapter was presented the award at NARI’s Evening of ExcellenceSM on April 2, 2011 at the National Meeting in Jersey City. The Evening of ExcellenceSM is widely considered to be the premier event of the year in the remodeling industry, and was attended this year by more than 200 of the industry’s elite.
