Since 1996, The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress' goal has been to bring together all roofing industry segments by funding research and educational programs; providing timely and forward-thinking industry responses to major economic and technological issues; and enhancing the long-term viability and attractiveness of the industry to roofing workers. Upholding this goal has never been so apparent than this past year. From research programs to helping members in the wake of tragedy, the Alliance has proved it is stronger than everand growing at a rapid pace.
This year, the Alliance continued to unite the roofing industry by focusing on education, recognizing industry members and helping others.
"The Alliance has a unique position as a group within the industry to bring together all sectors," says Alliance Vice President Robert McNamara, president of F.J.A Christiansen Roofing Co. Inc., a Tecta America company, Milwaukee.
