As you probably know, NRCA offers a wide variety of programs, publications and services to the roofing industry. In addition to providing critical technical and safety information, NRCA is an active advocate for the roofing industry in Washington, D.C., through its political action committee, ROOFPAC; provides educational opportunities every month; participates in building code hearings and standards organization meetings; organizes and supports charitable contributions throughout the U.S.; promotes and encourages professionalism of NRCA member contractors; and educates Chinese and Indian roofing professionals about developing roofing technology to help those countries raise their levels of roofing expertise.
The sheer breadth of NRCA's activities can seem overwhelming, which is why many Professional Roofing readers (NRCA members and nonmembers) often say they are unaware of some NRCA offerings. An easy way to stay connected to NRCA is to take advantage of its many communication options.
Through NRCA's website, www.nrca.net, you can subscribe to NRCA's biweekly E-News; follow NRCA on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn; watch NRCA's YouTube channel; and read NRCA's new blog, The Roof Scoop, which addresses several topics per week and presents them in a short, concise format.
In addition, all NRCA members automatically receive NRCA's monthly For Members Only newsletter, written by NRCA Executive Vice President Bill Good, as well as Professional Roofing (I encourage you to download the digital edition on your tablet, too).
