T

HAT " CAN-DO " SPIRIT ALWAYS HITS ME in the spring months, and
within our COVID-consumed world, this spring has meant more
than others have.This was especially true here in the northeastern U.S.,
where winter seemed longer than ever. Whether it's home improvement, personal improvement, professional development or raising
the bar in business, there's something about the energy of spring that
makes everything seem possible.
Hopefully, spring brings positive expectations and a sense of renewal for
the months ahead. Our industry is performing at an accelerated level, and
we're confident this is the time to build on that momentum and reach even
higher. NKBA is offering a number of terrific opportunities in the coming
weeks that can help elevate our businesses.
We are especially excited about our NKBA Summit: Luxury Defined, to be
held virtually on June 23-24.This is the first in our Summit series in 2021, and
the first devoted to the luxury kitchen market. We're excited to share findings
from our latest research and have a great lineup of speakers and panelists who
will discuss what modern luxury means. It's not just about price point or vast
square footage. Luxury manifests itself in tangible ways - including high-end
cabinetry, surface materials, appliances, artwork and other physical products - as well as the intangibles, like having more time, serenity and security,
which can be created through inspirational design. We'll explore these topics
and so much more with luxury market thought leaders, who will share their
experiences about ways to elevate the K&B design and remodeling process.

For fabulous kitchens and baths that are already completed, it's time to enter the prestigious
NKBA Professional Design Competition. It's
open through July 2 to all designers and builders,
but NKBA members can take advantage of the
early-bird entry period through May 31, during
which the first member submission is complimentary. Members pay $129 per entry after that,
and non-members may enter for $199 per project.
Entrants compete for more than $60,000 in cash
prizes, and winners elevate their industry profile
with exposure in consumer and trade media.
For subject-matter experts looking to share
knowledge, there's still time to submit a proposal
to present at the highly regarded Voices from the
Industry conference at KBIS 2022 in Orlando
next February. This annual institution is another
way to raise your industry profile, share your expertise and build brand recognition among thousands
of attendees. The deadline for proposals is June 5.
Finally, for the next generation of K&B rock
stars, nominations for NKBA's Thirty Under 30
program are open June 2 through July 28. This
program, now in its 10th year, recognizes accomplished young professionals with the potential to
lead the K&B business into the future.
Check out nkba.org for all the details,or scan the
QR code to access all of these programs - and we
look forward to seeing you at the next level!
