MILWAUKEE—The Milwaukee NARI Foundation, Inc., the educational and charitable arm of Milwaukee NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry), announced that Ronna Bromberg Pachefsky, owner of Plaster Gallery LLC in Milwaukee, was the recipient of the Foundation’s Spirit of Volunteerism Award.

The award was created to recognize a person that embodies the following qualities:

  • Donor of time and resources, plus demonstration of a strong commitment to community events that benefit the Milwaukee NARI Foundation and the industry
  • Provider of training and education within the industry in general, and the Milwaukee NARI Foundation in particular
  • Exhibitor of leadership, devotion, and dedication on behalf of the Milwaukee NARI Foundation and its partners
  • Willingness to share professional experience and expertise with other Milwaukee NARI members
  • Provider of assistance in the growth of the home improvement and remodeling industry

Chris Klug, Milwaukee NARI Foundation senior vice president, recognized Bromberg Pachefsky, who has been an association member since 2003, for her contribution to the Foundation and the chapter.  “Ronna, who joined the Milwaukee NARI Foundation board of directors in 2011, has been a committed and engaged board member during the last several years. She has played an integral role in the expansion of the Foundation’s scholarship program by coordinating the review of applications that are submitted by students pursuing studies to launch a career in the home improvement and remodeling industry. She always volunteers at the annual Rummage Sale and Golf Outing, as well as participates in other fundraising events through the selling of raffle tickets and donation of auction items.

“For the chapter, Ronna serves on the Membership and the Nominating & Leadership Committees, bringing enthusiasm and a can-do attitude to all activities,” Klug said.

The goal of the Milwaukee NARI Foundation is to promote public awareness of the home remodeling and improvement industry through educational programs and community activities and raise funds to support scholarships to help encourage and train young people and displaced workers interested in the professional remodeling industry.

To carry out its purpose, the Foundation expends funds for the refinement and/or expansion of existing Milwaukee NARI education programs, supports scholarships to assist professional training of individuals entering the home improvement and remodeling field, and embarks on activities judged necessary to insure an ample supply of professionally trained individuals.

Through various special events, including the annual Home Improvement Show raffle, Rummage Sale, Golf Outing, and Holiday Party, plus member contributions, the Foundation has provided nearly $190,000 in scholarships, tools, and equipment for use by students and schools in southeastern Wisconsin.  The Foundation has also established endowments at both Milwaukee Area Technical College and Waukesha County Technical College.
