The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has announced Johns Manville, Denver, has joined NRCA’s One Voice initiative, upgrading its associate membership to “partner member.”
In early 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. Previously, such rights were reserved only for contractor members.
“There is 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,” said 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.
“Johns Manville is proud to have been part of the roofing community for more than 160 years. We are always looking for ways to invest further to help move the industry forward,” says Joe Smith, president of Roofing Systems at Johns Manville. “Joining NRCA’s Once Voice initiative gives us a chance to be a part of something that helps our industry overcome challenges and make an impact where we think it matters most.”
