We hope that through our educational seminars and networking opportunities on the show floor with dealers and exhibitors that you have gained the right tools to have a success ful 2016. We had 65 exhibiting companies with 15 new exhibitors at this year's show. Also, there were over 75 Dealer companies that were represented. Attendance did show a slight increase from 2015.

EPA Improves Recertification Process for Lead Rule
NLBMDA Advocated for Increased Use of Online Training
[Washington DC] - The Environment Protection Agency ( EPA) has announced revisions to refresher training requirements for renovators as part of the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) program. The changes allow for online training every other recertification. Renovators who take the online training will be certified for three years; renovators who take the hands-on training will be certified for five years.
The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) is pleased by the EPA's announcement for an online-only refresher training option as part of the RRP rule. NLBMDA met with officials from the EPA and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regarding an online-only option for remodelers seeking recertification, and has maintained that online recertification is sufficient for remodelers who regularly work on homes subject to the RRP rule.
