Ambassador's Club

NKBA Partner Advertisement

The National Kitchen & Bath Association seeks to recognize members of the NKBA who have added to the growth of our Association by bringing in new members. In appreciation of their continuing efforts, we induct them into the NKBA Ambassadors' Club.

The success of the NKBA Ambassadors' Club is attributed to more than 160 members who have recruited over 4,000 new members into the NKBA. These recruiters receive national recognition through this website, as well as in NKBA Magazine. Induction takes place at the NKBA Chapter Officers' Forum/Ambassadors' Club Luncheon held at KBIS.

The NKBA Ambassadors' Club was created in 1983 to recognize individuals whose involvement represents the pinnacle of Association services. Membership in the club is reserved for individuals who recruit at least five new members in a 12-month period, or a total of 15 new members over any time period. New member applications received prior to December 31, 20110 will be considered for 2012 induction.

Please note the following club policies: (1) any NKBA member can participate; (2) only one Ambassadors' Club credit is awarded for each new applicant; (3) Ambassadors' Club credit will be awarded only after the membership application is processed; (4) members can be recruited in any non-student membership category; (5) reactivating a firm will count as a new application if the firm has not been an active NKBA member for at least 12 months; and (6) a branch membership application will count as a new member recruited.

Please note the following exclusions: (1) recruiters must be identified on the NKBA application form at the time it is submitted to the NKBA for processing to earn Ambassadors' Club credit; (2) an individual cannot receive credit if they recruit a "branch" from within their immediate corporate structure; and (3) changing membership categories does not count as a new application.
