    Announcing the Biggest NKBA Member Benefit Ever!

    The new is a simple, easy-to-use, digital platform built to help members grow their businesses. The system is designed to generate the best possible search results (and generate leads) for each member, but there's a catch … to get the maximum benefits (and the most leads), YOU must complete your profile.

    The new NKBA website has been designed to show off your business, produce the best possible search engine results, and help you take your career to the next level. It all starts with your completed profile, so please log-on today.

    By completeing your member profile prior to KBIS*, the Baltimore/Washington Chapter will receive $15 for every one of our dues paying members.  The chapter will then, in turn, give that money back to the chapter through programming in 2018.  We have excited things planned for the coming year and hope you'll join us! 


    *Update from NKBA National: The deadline is December 30, 2017
