NWFA Participates in Junior Achievement
ST. LOUIS, October 23, 2017 - The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) recently participated in the 2017 Junior Achievement Career Fair, sharing information on careers within the wood flooring industry with more than 2,200 students.

At Junior Achievement Career Fairs, students are able to learn from area professionals about the world of work as well as all about jobs that are available within the area.

“The Career Fair was an excellent way for us to reach students in middle school and high school,” says Stephanie Owen, Education & Member Engagement Director. “There’s so much more to our industry than installing hardwood floors and a lot of people, especially the younger generations, don’t think about that. It was a great way for us to share a variety of career opportunities within our industry. We received tremendous feedback from the students who attended.”

More information about the NWFA’s initiatives to educate the next generations on career opportunities in the wood flooring industry and to help address the skilled labor shortage in our industry can be found at www.nwfa.org/get-involved.aspx.

The National Wood Flooring Association is a not-for-profit trade organization, with more than 3,000 member companies worldwide, dedicated to educating consumers, architects, designers, specifiers and builders in the uses and benefits of wood flooring. NWFA members receive the best in educational training, benefits, technical resources and networking, to advance their professionalism and success. The NWFA is located at 111 Chesterfield Industrial Boulevard, Chesterfield, MO 63005, and can be contacted at 800.422.4556 (USA & Canada), 636.519.9663 (local and international), or online at www.nwfa.org.
