The Voices from the Industry Conference is a great way to earn CEUs — get your passes now. By Dianne M. Pagoda
KBIS 2019 includes a full slate of learning opportunities through its Voices from the Industry Conference. Hear from Subject Matter Experts representing all segments of the kitchen and bath industry at this KBIS institution — exclusively sponsored by Kohler.
Five general topic areas include:
- Grow Your Business
- Kitchen & Bath Specialty Training
- Customer Service
NKBA offers a wide variety of presentations, from sales strategies and technology to lighting and Living in Place design, and so much more. For the first time, VFTI will present a special session directed specifically at students enrolled in training programs for careers in the K&B Industry.
Most sessions are one hour, but new for 2019, VFTI will include four (4) two-hour Professional Development sessions with top instructors that are designed to develop your skills and further your career. All VFTI sessions are approved for NKBA CEU credits, and many will also qualify for other industry CEUs. The two-hour sessions offer NKBA 0.2 CEUs; one-hour sessions offer NKBA 0.1 CEU. CEUs are needed to maintain NKBA certification, and often qualify to maintain other industry certifications and designations as well.
All sessions take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Check KBIS.com for the latest on specific venues and to register for the conference; single-day or three-day passes are available. Single-day access to VFTI sessions, which also includes an Expo-only pass, is $250 for NKBA members, and $325 for non-members.
