The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) has launched "NKBA Connect,"  a blog providing kitchen and bath professionals with a platform to stay connected with the industry. The blog is poised to serve as a prime resource for industry information and inspiration, according to the association.

“The blog is a great way for NKBA to communicate with members through a different means,” said John Petrie, CMKBD. NKBA president. “NKBA Connect is a great complement to our existing social media channels, rounding out our offerings, and providing an opportunity to publish solid, current content for the benefit of our members.”

NKBA Connect is the central location for industry news, design and inspiration, chapter highlights, member achievements, and much more. The blog features six themed sections including NKBA Up Close, Member Vista, NKBA U, K&B Buzz, Chapter Focus, and New & Now. 

NKBA Up Close section features executive committee members and other NKBA volunteers, providing readers with the opportunity to get a glimpse into their niche areas of expertise. The Member Vista section invites NKBA members to guest blog on a wide variety of industry-relevant topics. 

The NKBA U section will highlight NKBA University, a key Association initiative that opens its doors to kitchen and bath professionals for continued professional development. Articles will highlight learning opportunities and share stories of members’ personal journeys on the road to professional development and certification. 

K&B Buzz will be a roundup of some of the most popular design blogs the web has to offer, featuring images, ideas, trends and tech that will inspire. With many great events and networking opportunities being offered by the various NKBA Chapters, the Chapter Focus section will serve as a forum to share chapter successes and inspire fellow members. The New & Now section is a venue for exploring the latest news, events, and innovations in our industry. 

“NKBA is deep in dialogue. We’re talking, and we’re listening. We hope that all of you take the opportunity to use NKBA Connect as a resource to keep the conversation going,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO.
