Uncasville, CT–The Earth Expo & Convention Center at Mohegan Sun, located here, recently welcomed the Northeastern Retail Lumber Association (NRLA) LBM Expo.

Mark Altman of MINDSETGO kicked off the two-day Expo with “Syncing Five Generations in the Workplace, Unite Your Employees, Cultural Values & Goals.” The presentation focused on maximizing generational similarities and capitalizing on their differences.

LBM Expo continued this year to offer free education on the show floor in the building demo zones. Matt Whitbeck and Gary Striegler presented on the main stages to teach the best practices to help customers.

Also, Chris Lambton, a Cape Cod native and host of HGTV’s “Going Yard,” discussed the latest in outdoor living trends.

LBM Expo wrapped up Expo education with an economic outlook from President and Chief Economist of Graphs and Laughs, Elliot Eisenberg Ph.D. A former senior economist at the National Association of Home Builders, he spoke on the economic impacts of industries, such as homebuilding and tourism and the consequences of government regulation.

The NRLA was established in New York in 1894 by a small group of pioneering lumbermen who recognized the value of cooperation. Today, the NRLA is a 1,160-member association representing independent lumber and building material suppliers and associated businesses in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, District of Columbia, and the six New England states. NRLA is an industry leader in education, legislative and regulatory reform, and member programs and services.

NRLA is affiliated with the American Building Materials Alliance, which helps advocate on federal issues specific to the building material industry.
