Matt Krig will lead Cabinet Makers Association for third year.
We’re pleased to announce that Northland Woodworks Vice President Matt Krig has been elected to a third term as president of the Cabinet Makers Association, the association for professional cabinet makers and woodworkers in the United States and Canada.
“The Cabinet Makers Association was incorporated in 1998 by a group of custom cabinet makers who thought our industry needed a group for the small- to mid-size shop to network and help each other grow
profitably,” the association explains on its website.
“From our humble beginnings in a Chicago hotel on a cold winter night, we have grown to include hundreds of small- to medium-sized cabinet shops, millworkers and furniture makers and suppliers throughout the USA and Canada, and even a few members from beyond North America.”
The CMA gives cabinetmakers and woodworkers from both the residential and commercial markets opportunities to “get together and share their hard earned knowledge and experience to help one another.”
As president, Matt will work closely with the other Board of Directors members – as well as the multi-talented Executive Director Amanda Conger – to fulfill the mission of the CMA.
This includes helping organize and promote regional events, assembling and presenting continuing education classes at the national trade shows and assisting with the private forum. He will also be working closely with industry partners and the press to educate, create opportunities and advance best practices within the industry.

“I’m honored to have been elected for a third term,” says Matt. “The ongoing trust and endorsement of the CMA members means a lot, and the opportunity to be involved on the front lines of the industry is invaluable.
“Serving has given me so many amazing ideas and introduced me to so many great businesses,” he adds. “I cannot imagine where I’d be if I hadn’t taken this opportunity. If you ever have a chance to get more involved in something, go for it!”
Working with the CMA, he says, brings opportunities to volunteer, teach and generally give back to others in the industry who are generous with their time and knowledge.
“It’s a privilege for Northland’s team to be considered thought leaders in the industry, and I’m pleased to be able to represent our company and its values,” Matt says. “I’ve had some great mentors, directors and Board members come before me who have really helped me along the way and laid a foundation we are excited to build on. This past year has been a blur of activities, and we are looking forward to rolling out another year of high-value events, education sessions and more.
“I’m really excited to be part of the energy and excitement of our Board and Executive director team. These people bring out the best in everyone, and it’s really something when you can see the impact our organization has on our members and their businesses. The CMA has helped Northland grow and improve in so many ways, and it’s my goal to be able to spread that to another group of up and coming cabinet businesses.”
