The National Kitchen & Bath Association has been a key player in promoting education in design and related fields, helping colleges, technical institutes, vocational and trade schools prepare thousands of students for lucrative careers in design and remodeling.
By joining the NKBA, your school and its educators can take advantage of the many benefits of membership, including new offerings that will be coming online in phases over the next several months such as; web presence exposure for your school through a profile page on the NKBA web site, plus the NKBA Affiliated School logo for the school’s own site; participation in an online community tailored to educators with discussion forums, lesson plan repositories, best-practice guides, curriculum and other resources, as well as an online forum to network with other educators in similar fields.
Educators at affiliated schools will also be able to utilize an internship portal currently in development, attend educator-focused in-person forums and virtual meetings, and take advantage of mentoring by experienced program coordinators. NKBA membership for the school and its educators is free, and discounts on NKBA Professional Knowledge publications and at the KBIS trade show are available. Schools also get the benefit of professional review of two student kitchen and bath drawing samples annually at no charge.
Joining the NKBA Affiliated Schools program is the best way to build your school’s credibility in the field and attract students with passion for this career path. It’s a win-win for your students, your school and the industry’s long-term prosperity.
