FROM THE PRESIDENT
 
Honoring National Kitchen and Bath Month! Showrooms around the city have been celebrating with extra-special events. We hope you've been out there to participate and learn. On Oct. 10th, NKBA National and Interior Design magazine teamed up to host a night of knowledge and networking at the Kohler Experience Center. Over 100 designers turned out to hear Elle H-Menard, CKD, talk about the latest trends she discovered during London Design Week. It was a fabulous event, with 20 Kohler kitchen and bath vignettes as the backdrop. Haven't been there yet? Plan a trip to the KEC at 6 West 22nd Street.
   Also be sure to visit the B/S/H/ Experience Center in the A&D Building. This month, on Oct. 11th, the Thermador brand at B/S/H/ debuted its new 36-inch single-door refrigerator with some extra-special features. You'll have to visit the center to find out what they are, but just know that folks who grow their own produce will be very pleased.
   Later in the month, on Oct 19th, the Fisher & Paykel showroom in the A&D Building hosted our monthly chapter meeting with an engaging topic for business owners, "The Artful Science of 'Winning' More Business Using the Internet." The presenters offered great insight on increasing your sales and circle of influence.
   Also, did you know that F&P has begun hosting cooking demonstrations at its showroom? Visit fisherpaykel.com and book yours now! And don't forget to save the date for our next chapter meeting on November 9th with Architectural Digest at Miele. We can't wait to see you there!
