Professional Buying Group
Unlike any other buying group, each SEN Design Group membership offers an array of programs and tools that may be tailored to your business.
Boost your buying power and earn higher rebates with SEN. Enjoy access to over 80 vendor partners and enhanced display allowances. And reap the benefits of the industry’s highest available rebates. Through the sharing of our vendor administrative fee, SEN Full Members earn on average, 25% more in rebates, than any other designers buying group. Vendor rebates increase as group purchases grow while gross margins increase through direct purchase from manufacturers.
Education and Coaching
SEN believes that education and coaching is a fundamental part of a successful business and it is our passion to make our members stronger, smarter, business people.
Our kitchen and bath educational services include seminars on various topics across the country, a Management & Marketing Business School, as well as an On-Demand Library for educational tips and tricks at any time.
In addition to kitchen and bath education, Business Coaching is a key component of membership at SEN and is useful for any decision maker of a Kitchen and Bath Dealer. Our Business Advisers are educated, supportive, and insightful in the workings of firms in the industry and can customize a plan to fit your needs.
There are two Semi- Annual Conferences held each year across the country hosted by SEN. Each kitchen and bath conference gives members the opportunity to have one-on-one time with vendors, connect with other members, and gain supplemental knowledge through workshops and speakers. These pieces of education are formulated for the success of each participating company. It is a membership requirement to attend a conference at least once every 12 months.
SEN and NARI have partnered together to offer both their certifications and education to members at lowered pricing. With a combined 6,700 members across the country, the two associations are in a position to better the businesses of their firms through business and project management training, marketing, kitchen and bath education, and more.
