Online Registration Now Open for Roofing Day in D.C. 2019

The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) announced that online registration is open for Roofing Day in D.C. 2019, which will be held April 3-4. The purpose of the event is to bring the roofing industry together to meet with members of Congress and their staffs and deliver the industry’s message with “one voice.”

On March 6-7, 2018, the roofing industry came together in Washington, D.C., for Roofing Day in D.C. 2018. The event was a success with more than 400 professionals from all segments of the roofing industry coming together to deliver a unified industry message to Congress. From states as far as Hawaii and Alaska, roofing professionals from all segments of the industry showed up and made a lasting impression on legislators, bringing to their attention our urgent need for regulatory reform, enhanced career and technical educational programs, and immigration reform that meets our workforce needs. 

The NRCA encourages all industry stakeholders to attend and bring employees and crew members to be a part of this unique and exciting event. It’s important for Congress to hear from all segments of the industry. Registration is only $75 for company representatives and $25 for roof system installers. You do not need to be an NRCA member to participate—anyone from the roofing industry is welcome and encouraged to attend.

NRCA Encourages All Roofing Industry Stakeholders to Participate in Roofing Day 2019

Taking place April 3-4, 2019, Roofing Day in D.C. is a national legislative fly-in event to advocate for the roofing industry. It will bring together hundreds of roofing professionals from all segments of the industry to speak with one voice on critical issues before members of Congress. It is the largest advocacy event dedicated solely to the roofing industry.

In its inaugural year, Roofing Day in D.C. 2018 saw more than 400 roofing industry stakeholders from 47 states and Puerto Rico taking part. This event made a lasting impression on members of Congress. During the event, participants advocated for a bill to improve career and technical education, and soon after, Congress approved the legislation and President Trump signed it into law.

Participants in Roofing Day in D.C. 2019 will build on this success to further strengthen the roofing industry’s influence. To make an even greater impact in 2019, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is seeking strong participation from a broad cross-section of the industry, including employers, field employees and others from all sectors of the industry.
