Why Join KCMA?
While you’re busy running your business, we’re busy protecting it. KCMA keeps members informed about regulatory developments that can directly affect the industry. As a member, you’ll receive important updates from our bi-weekly newsletter and track breaking news in our Issues & Policies section.
KCMA conducts several surveys each year that provide valuable data to your business. Data like this would cost thousands of dollars through research firms but is FREE to our members. All you need to do is participate.
- Monthly Trend of Business reports – view where your company stands in monthly sales against other manufacturers
- Safety Survey – this annual survey provides up-to-date safety stats that could help reduce your company’s insurance rate
- Wage & Labor – conducted bi-annually, the Wage & Labor study provides personnel data related to pay, benefits, wage increases, and more that you can use to develop your pay structure and remain competitive
- Income & Expense – data from the annual Income & Expense survey helps members to grow their business by informing business plans, identifying management areas that need improvement, and applying for business loans
Don’t miss these events each Spring and Fall for educational programs and speakers, a supplier exposition, and plant tours. Tour other manufacturer’s facilities – get an in-depth look inside their plants and walk away with new ideas and plans for your business. Get inspired with strategies for your own company from our educational sessions. Walk the floor of our small, intimate supplier Expo to see the latest cabinet products and services and get plenty of valuable face time with those suppliers. Our Expo is small but the benefits are huge!
KCMA is the only industry-specific source establishing benchmarks that identify opportunities for your continued success. KCMA sponsors the nationally recognized voluntary testing and certification program for cabinets.
KCMA created the ESP Program to help cabinet manufacturers and consumers ensure that cabinets are made in an environmentally-sound manner.
