The Springtime NADRA event was an overwhelming success. Held at Six Bridges Brewing in Johns Creek, Georgia, some 50-60 industry professionals gathered for a great Monday night kickoff into what promises to be an exciting year for everyone. It was great seeing so many familiar faces all in one place, and encouraging to see a handful of first-time attendees!
Our guest speaker was Glenn Mathewson, who generously gave of his time to share with us the importance of staying engaged with the ever-changing deck code. Afterwards, he made himself available to anyone who had questions or concerns, providing great insight from an insider’s perspective on the goings-on in code development.
We were thrilled to see such a good turnout, and are excited to get together again soon!
I’m was so excited to be the guest speaker for the Southeast NADRA meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. My job was to get these deck professionals pumped up for my representation of the decking industry this year for the development of the 2021 IRC. Your voices are critical to development of the codes of their industry, and you need to know your value in safeguarding the public with the most appropriate and economical standards to preserve safety and American freedom. I’m so proud to carry your voice this year. There is incredible knowledge from the trenches that must be included in code development.
We spoke a bit about NADRA education and the code fundraising initiative.
