Can anyone point me toward associations specifically for cabinet manufacturers or cabinetmakers?
The Cabinetmakers association has taken off over the last few years, and I meet with them at one trade show after another. For architectural woodworking companies, Awinet is a source of enormous support and direction. You do well to join any regional or local group of similarly focused companies. You'll learn that you are not alone and that you aren't competing with other cabinetmakers as much as you might believe.
