To acknowledge our members for their craftsmanship, the NWFA has developed multiple recognition opportunities.

Each year, Hardwood Floors magazine recognizes 40 industry professionals under the age of 40 who are helping to determine the future of the wood flooring industry. These individuals are today’s movers and shakers who are already setting the pace for tomorrow.
