The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has announced Duro-Last, Inc., Saginaw, Mich. has joined NRCA’s One Voice initiative, upgrading its associate membership to “partner member.”
In 2017, NRCA launched its One Voice initiative to unite the roofing industry and speak with one voice about matters critical to the roofing industry’s continued success.
To ensure all industry sectors are given an opportunity to participate, NRCA amended its bylaws to allow manufacturers, distributors, architects, engineers and consultants that choose to participate to become full members of the association, meaning they will be granted voting rights and eligible for leadership roles within the association. Previously, such rights were reserved only for contractor members.
“NRCA’s One Voice initiative offers a unique opportunity for the roofing industry to address the major issues we face. However, our work can only be accomplished with commitments from leaders from all sectors of this great industry,” says Reid Ribble, NRCA’s CEO. “Only together as a roofing community can we take this transformational approach to address our issues and concerns and achieve success in the future.”
Issues currently affecting the roofing industry include workforce development and certification; advancing the industry’s public policy agenda; building codes and insurance; and increasing professionalism throughout the industry.
“Duro-Last is committed to solving the challenges that face the roofing industry, but we recognize that it can’t be done alone,” says Tom Saeli, CEO of Duro-Last. “We are honored to join NRCA’s One Voice initiative and be a part of the solution that makes a lasting, positive impact on the future of the industry.”
