NARI of MN is able to provide quality programming through the many volunteers of the association. Every event, training, program, and member benefit is supported and offered because of volunteer member input and action.

The mission of the association is to be the primary remodeling resource for professionals and consumers by elevating the professionalism of the remodeling industry through expanding knowledge, building relationships and recognition of industry excellence.

Volunteer members serve 1-3 hours per month. Each committee decides its own schedule to meet the goals set by the NARI of MN Board of Directors. Some committees meet every month, others meet 3-5 times a year. Service to the association provides access, networking opportunities, and increased industry knowledge.
