This event has always been a huge success and is typically one of the best meetings of the year.  It provides a win-win situation where investors/landlords/rehabbers meet vendor/contractors and exchange information and business cards.

In order to make this event better, we need the help of each and every member to contact their favorite contractors and ask them to advertise on our website as a preferred vendor and attend our Vendor Fair on February 16th.  They can find out more information by going to our Vendor Partner page on the NICIA website.  Nicia.org

I would like to challenge you  to bring at least one contractor for this event.  Many of our current contractors have received thousands of dollars of work from our members.  It is very beneficial for these contractors to advertise through our organization as it will increase their business awareness.  The NICIA is trying to create a list of preferred contractors that are investor-friendly (our NICIA black book).
