Former NRCA President Donald McNamara addresses the audience during NRCA's dinner dance Feb. 25, 1987. Celebrating 100 years of roofing excellence, NRCA's centennial convention was held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and with more than 9,500 attendees, it remains the largest NRCA convention to date.

This year, NRCA celebrates its 125th Annual Convention, to be held during the 2012 International Roofing Expo,® at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Feb. 20-24. Although attendance is not expected to break the 1987 mark, NRCA and Hanley Wood anticipate more than 8,000 people will attend this year's event.
