The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) represents 7,500 contractors in 61 local chapter organizations throughout the United States.
NARI members are small business owners -- carpenters, plumbers and other remodeling professionals, most of whom do not have the time or experience needed to create an association website. But that's what each NARI chapter does, and it's where Wild Apricot's association website builder software comes in.
"We began working with Wild Apricot because we needed a low-cost, easy-to-use member-management technology," says Phil Stratton, head of NARI's chapter services. "We needed a web site template -- something already created for each local chapter, to save them money and time. Our web site had to communicate with our members to keep track of their membership, renewals, dues, etc. Equally important, the web site had to market member services to consumers shopping for remodeling contractors in their area. Wild Apricot does all that and more."
For distributed organizations like NARI who need individual websites for each chapter, Wild Apricot offers multi-chapter pricing. "Chapters simply contact me when they’re ready to make the switch," says Stratton. "The entire process can be done in just four hours. That alone is amazing because I am not a technology geek, nor are the chapter leaders -- that’s how simple Wild Apricot is to use!”
