You’ve probably noticed this month’s issue of Hardware Retailing came with a little something extra. The 2019 NRHA Member Guide is packed with the information you need to make the most of your association’s programs, research and events. 

NRHA’s goal is to educate independent home improvement retailers, advocate for their success and help members associate to benefit from one another’s insights. The guide highlights your association’s two levels of membership and its individual offerings, giving an up-close look at the options available to retailers across the U.S. and Canada. You can review the separate membership offerings NRHA provides to help your business grow. For more information on membership benefits, consult the enclosed Member Guide.

To learn more about membership levels and the programs available to retailers, contact Member Services at nrha@nrha.org, or call 1-800-772-4424 to discover how NRHA can help your business and employees grow. 

Basic Membership

It’s important to remember that every independent home improvement retailer across the country has a Basic Membership to NRHA.

Basic members have free, unlimited access to a variety of online educational resources and monthly issues of Hardware Retailing. This membership level is a perfect fit for many retailers who want to use industry research and insight to streamline their business.

At this level, retailers can learn more about the programs, events and services NRHA offers to help retailers succeed. Basic Membership is also a perfect solution for retailers operating on a budget.

Perhaps you’ve thought of instituting a training program at your business, but weren’t quite sure where to start or how to track its success. Maybe you’ve considered getting more involved in the developing the industry. If these traits apply to you, an NRHA Basic Membership is the perfect place to start. 

Training Membership

Retailers who start with an NRHA Training Membership have access to all of the benefits of the Basic Membership, in addition to a wealth of research and training resources that can put their business on the path to success.

Training Members have access to nine in-depth, online training programs they can use to inspire and inform staff members to perform to the highest standard. These online training programs provide valuable information on product knowledge, advanced selling skills, basic accounting and loss prevention.

An NRHA Training Membership is perfect for retailers who want to sell more, connect with customers and capitalize on exclusive industry research to better achieve their goals. 

With an NRHA Training Membership, retailers can enrich their training programs, work to reduce turnover and boost employee confidence. It’s a great solution for retailers who have a small to midsize budget. 

Individual Offerings

NRHA has something for every retailer. Individual offerings from the association can be a great investment to strengthen employees’ skills and profit from illuminating industry research.

The Cost of Doing Business Study helps retailers benchmark their businesses by comparing their financial data to typical and high-profit operations. 

Retailers should explore the ways the Retail Leadership Institute can inspire employees to excel. 

NRHA’s Business Services offer health insurance solutions, human resources management and payment processing. They save retailers time and money and help operations run smoother than ever before. 

Choosing individual offerings from the association is a great option for retailers who are looking for advanced leadership or operational training for key employees. These offerings are also a great way to build a network of highly motivated peers.
