The Home Furnishings Association announced Steve Kidder of Vermont Furniture Galleries, Williston, Vt. as its 2017 president Monday during its annual membership meeting in Las Vegas and it added four board members to its ranks.

Jacob Shevin, Standard Furniture in Birmingham, Ala., Lisa Keyes, Naturwood Furniture in Rancho Cordova, Calif., Richard Rotman, Rottman’s Furniture in Worcester, Mass., and Salvador Llanos, Famsa USA in Dallas were recognized at the board meeting. “They’re going to make our board even stronger with their knowledge and insight,” said Jeff Child of R.C. Willey, the Association’s outgoing president. Child, now Chairman of the Board, passed the gavel to Kidder. The rest of the 2017 executive committee includes president-elect Jim Fee of Stoney Creek Furniture, Stoney Creek, ON, vice president Sherry Sheely of Sheely’s Furniture & Appliance, North Lima, Ohio and secretary/treasurer Jesus Capo of El Dorado Furniture, Opa Locka, Fla.
