The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has hired Kjell Nymark as its technical advisor. In this role, Nymark will continue as a NWFA Instructor as well as coordinate and strengthen the NWFA’s relationship with the Carpenters Union, represent and build NWFA participation throughout Canada, assist in the development of NWFA’s apprenticeship program, work with the NWFACP Inspector program, assist with technical publication and technical call support, and contribute to Hardwood Floors Magazine.
“The addition of Kjell to the NWFA team is going to further strengthen NWFA’s role within our industry,” said Brett Miller, NWFA vice president of education and certification. “With Kjell’s background as a contractor, inspector, NWFA Certified Professional Board Director, and instructor, we are adding another resource that will allow us to increase NWFA’s ability to take larger and faster strides as we continue to grow the educational value of NWFA.”
