NICA, as a member-driven association, has made great strides in bringing awareness about home inventories to the general public. To increase this awareness, a committee worked with Managing Director Cindy Hartman to establish National Home Inventory Month. One more shout-out to the committee members Debra Palmer, Jo Soard, and Tricia Hoekwater for a job well done – and in a very short time!
A press release was distributed mid-March, announcing that NICA declared April as National Home Inventory Month. We are very pleased that many other press release sites picked up the article and posted it on their sites. Members also shared the press release on their social media accounts – thank you to those who took the time to help promote it. The press release is also published on the News page of the NICA website, so you can easily share that article on your social media posts.
As April is just a few days away, the committee would like all home inventory professionals to watch for the NICA social media posts and share the information. There is also a prepared list of posts for members to share on their social media accounts along with graphics created specifically for National Home Inventory Month 2018.
Please visit the page dedicated to this awareness month on the NICA website. There is a brief section telling visitors the reasons for establishing this special month, followed by a list of activities every home inventory professional can embrace to help share the information and inform their followers.
National Home Inventory Month will be as successful as each home inventory professional decides to make it. This is a great opportunity to pull together and make a concerted effort as an industry to bring attention to the services each home inventory professional offers.
Let’s see the month of April full of activities, social media posts, press releases, and efforts to share the opportunities to create awareness. Please send photos of what you’re doing. If you don’t have photos but would like to share what you did to contribute to our industry’s recognition, send an email. We’ll include all member photos and contributions on the News page of the website and in the May newsletter.
