Are you serious about your K and B Business?
From the outside looking in, you may have thought that a KBDi Membership was all about Awards and Events. While we LOVE showcasing Australia’s Finest designers in our annual Awards program, and have a heap of fun at our regular Chapter Events, they’re only two of the many benefits we offer KBDi Members. If you’re serious about your kitchen and bathroom business, ask yourself if the following benefits are good enough reasons for you to join the KBDi community.
In 2019, KBDi Certified Designer, Designer and Associate Members can look forward to:
#1 Access to our growing suite of Technical Bulletins(released every month and soon to be housed in our new-look Members Portal).
