Roofing Alliance Opens Nomination Period for MVP and Gold Circle Awards

The Roofing Alliance, the foundation of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), has opened the nomination period for two industry award programs—the 2020-21 Most Valuable Player (MVP) and the Gold Circle Awards. The two programs spotlight and promote excellence in the industry with the MVP Awards Program recognizing workers committed to excellence on and off the roof and the Gold Circle Awards program recognizing Roofing Alliance and NRCA members for outstanding workmanship, innovation and safety in roofing.

MVP Awards

The Roofing Alliance’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards program recognizes workers who make outstanding contributions to their companies, co-workers and communities.

The award categories include:

  • Outstanding On-the-Job Performance/Workmanship – Dedicated, reliable employees are vital to a company’s success and, among those employees, usually one stands out above all others. That’s the employee who 1) Has a strong work ethic, 2) Shows leadership, initiative and resourcefulness, 3) Has earned an outstanding safety record, 4) Shows support for his or her co-workers and 5) Goes above and beyond. 
  • Outstanding Performance/Other Noteworthy Contributions Outside the Workplace – Outstanding workers not only have a passion for the work they do and a sense of loyalty toward their employers, but they also show compassion for others outside the workplace. They volun­teer their time with their communities, churches, families and friends. They are determined to overcome challenges and obstacles they may face personally or stand by others who need their support. They’re always willing to extend a helping hand. They display exemplary service, leadership, commitment and selfless devotion.

MVPs are role models who demonstrate work-related and personal goals to which others aspire. Roofing professionals are encouraged to nominate employees for an MVP award to recog­nize their outstanding contributions through on-the-job performance and workmanship and for their outstanding performance and other noteworthy contributions outside the workplace.  In addition, one MVP winner will be chosen to be Professional Roofing’s Best of the Best. The person selected as the Best of the Best typically stands out in both categories.  Deadline for nominations is November 20, 2020.  Applications and additional information can be found at http://roofingalliance.net/programs/mvp/.
