Roofing Industry Stakeholders Meet Elected Officials on Roofing Day in D.C. 2018

More than 400 roofing industry stakeholders from 47 states are in Washington, D.C., on March 7, meeting with their elected officials as part of Roofing Day in D.C. 2018. Led by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) and more than 20 partner associations and organizations, the event is an unprecedented effort to elevate the image of the roofing industry and share its message with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

Roofing Day in D.C. 2018 is among the top 10 percent of all national legislative fly-in events and the largest advocacy event dedicated solely to the roofing industry. Participants will visit with members of Congress and discuss three issues on which there is broad consensus within the roofing industry: regulatory reform, workforce development and immigration reform. About 85 percent of Congress will hear from roofing industry stakeholders during the event.

“NRCA is excited to lead this industrywide effort to bring the message of the roofing industry straight to our elected officials,” said Reid Ribble, NRCA’s CEO. “Thanks goes out to the more than 400 stakeholders who travelled to D.C. today to advocate for our great industry.”

NRCA Invites Industry Stakeholders to Participate in Roofing Day in D.C. 2018

NRCA is inviting all roofing industry professionals to come together in Washington, D.C., in an unprecedented effort to elevate the image of the industry and share its message with lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Roofing Day in D.C. 2018 will take place March 6-7. All NRCA members are urged to participate and consider bringing one or more employees.

“To effect change in Washington and elevate the image of the roofing industry, we must speak with one voice: contractors, distributors, manufacturers, designers, labor and management together,” said Reid Ribble, NRCA’s CEO. “When we are united and organized, we present our industry as a united voting body.”

Roofing Day in D.C. will bring together roofing contractors, distributors, manufacturers and other industry professionals from across the United States, with a goal of having every state represented in Washington. It will be the largest advocacy event dedicated solely to the roofing industry.
