National Women in Roofing (NWIR), a national organization focused on the empowerment of women within the roofing industry, has opened registration for 2020 NWIR Day being held in Dallas, Texas on February 2, 2020 in advance of the International Roofing Expo (IRE). National Women in Roofing Day is an all-day premier seminar for women in the roofing industry with this year’s theme being focused on Driving Your Success in 2020.
“There are a lot of seminars out there, but no others where the entire program is focused on the unique challenges and opportunities that women in the roofing industry face,” said Jennifer Stone, NWIR Chairperson. “By attending, women working in the roofing industry will connect, discover and cultivate new relationships with hundreds of roofing professionals from around the country — truly getting the tools to Drive Your Success.”
The third annual NWIR Day is the premier conference for multidisciplinary women professionals in the roofing industry to come together to learn about the latest business strategies and tactics while sharing their secrets to success. Attendees will be able to connect with professional, like-minded, good-spirited women from all facets of the roofing industry and experience insight, inspiration and fun.
“Business is constantly changing,” continued Stone. “For many women—whether just starting out or with twenty+ years under their belt—there is a gap between what is already known and what is still needed to be learned to be the best at the many jobs held by women in roofing.” At NWIR Day, there are sessions designed to help bridge that gap, whether it’s learning the latest application techniques, creating a company culture that attracts and retains talent, or developing short-term and long-term business strategies; the advice and connections are invaluable.
As a full-day program, it will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:30 p.m., with a fun evening activity to take place immediately afterwards. Sessions cover topics that will drive your success including business development, communications, career development, mentoring, recruitment, roofing technology advancements, hands on product demonstrations, a safety walk and of course, networking. This program is intended to foster conversation and learning. The day will include a light breakfast, lunch, snacks, an evening activity and the first ever WORLD Award that will be awarded to honor an outstanding woman in the roofing industry. To register for NWIR Day, simply visit the IRE website, www.theroofingexpo.com.
The cost for the event is $65 for NWIR members and $125 for non-members. The $125 includes the NWIR membership fee of $60. NWIR leadership understands that it can be hard to relay the importance of this conference to company leadership so they have developed a toolkit for women to help explain and justify the importance of attendance.
