EVENT TYPE: Presentation
VIRTUAL FORMAT: Semi-Live
2020 presented a variety of challenges for independent lumbers yards and their builder customers across the U.S., including unpredictable material delays, environmental impacts, volatile pricing and of course, the COVID-19 health crisis. Additionally, advancements in technology, a persistent shortage of workers, the growing acceptance of lean practices and post-pandemic health realities will all play a significant role in shaping how dealers will operate in the future. Join us as forward-thinking industry leaders discuss these current trends, predict which challenges will continue into 2021 and explore the near- and long-term future of independent lumber yards.
Brought to you in partnership with LBM Journal & the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA).
