All About PRO National (PRO Inc)

By Cathy Follett, Renovisions, Inc.

PRO Inc was formed to pool resources and support for each affiliate chapter. Currently, PRO-NE is joined by PRO chapters in Central VA, Delaware Valley, Mid-Atlantic, DC, Iowa/Nebraska, Philadelphia, and New York.  Each chapter focuses on its local members while having a strong alliance between the affiliates with PRO Inc’s support. PRO Inc’s leadership structure was designed with a clear purpose: to ensure its affiliates have equal representation in PRO Inc and autonomy to best serve its local members. Another goal is leveraging talent from affiliate members for leadership roles with PRO Inc.

Pro’s mission is to be the most trusted resource in remodeling, where homeowners and remodeling professionals can turn for inspiration and information. Here are the four areas of focus:

  1. Education and Professional Certifications
  2. Networking with your peers
  3. Recognition Awards
  4. Advocacy

Please stay tuned as PRO Inc rolls out its all-new educational platform, the PRO Learning Center. All PRO-NE members and their teams will soon have access to the best in the industry, formal, structured, customizable training that has long-term industry sustainability. The Learning Center is the solution to teach, test, track, and award certifications for every member of your company. Our PRO-NE member, Bob Williams, is currently working on the National Education Committee, spearheading this dynamic process, and we are thankful for his commitment, enthusiasm, and professional expertise.

PRO Inc actively seeks PRO Partners, companies that provide the best products, services, and resources to collaborate with all PRO Member affiliates. PRO Partner sponsorship applications are found at PRO Partners such as Canvas, Cost Certified, and Action Coach have already joined and are working with PRO Inc to expand programming and offerings.

PRO-NE is excited about the new logo design, and as part of the re-branding committee, I am grateful for the time and efforts of all the National Committee Members that brought this to fruition. 

PRO Inc’s leaders are proud of the recent alliance with JLC Live Residential Construction Show organizers and plan to meet as a group at the show to collaborate and communicate future plans while all being together in person. We welcome all PRO-NE members to attend this great event and use Promo Code PRO23 for a free Expo Pass. JLC Live will be held at the Rhode Island Conference Center on March 23-25.  For more information, visit the website, www.JLCLive.NE and I look forward to seeing you there!
