Robert G. Mann



Created in 2006 in memory of the late Robert G. Mann, who was one of the founding members of the Greater Sacramento Valley Chapter of NARI, this award honors an individual who has shown exceptional leadership, devotion, dedication, passion and accomplishments on behalf of NARI and the Greater Sacramento Valley Chapter.

History:  Considered by founding members to be the “Mayor of NARI”, Robert’s enthusiasm for NARI and what it stood for drew enough professionals in to start the Chapter on September 16, 1986.  He, along with his wife Paula, tirelessly promoted NARI and its principles to local businesses, homeowners and contractors – his goal was for NARI to become a household name.  Robert lived NARI’s Core Purpose and Big Audacious Goal many years before it was even written!
