The NAED PAR Report® Survey is Now Open

With the annual NAED PAR Report survey now open, we're asking our members to take time to submit their information. Regarded as one of NAED's most beneficial offerings, the survey results provide benchmarks for distributors' key financial categories so you can see how you are performing against your peers. The final report offers distributors an up-to-date picture of their financial performance on operations, assets, and sales. Additional breakouts for sales volume, customer segments, number of locations and regions are also available. Completed surveys are due by April 15.

For questions about participating in the NAED PAR Report survey, view the information section or contact NAED Member Services at 888-791-2512.
