Golden Opportunities

NRCA members receive Gold Circle Awards for exceptional roofing projects

Every year, NRCA honors members who have made outstanding contributions to the roofing industry through its Gold Circle Awards program. Members are nominated by their peers for meeting standards of achievement in four categories: outstanding workmanship, innovative solutions, service to the community and service to the industry.

The 13th annual Gold Circle Awards were presented to members during NRCA's 121st Annual Convention in Las Vegas. This year, 20 nominations were received for projects completed between June 1, 2005, and Sept. 31, 2007. There were no winners in the categories of outstanding workmanship—low slope, innovative solutions—reroofing or service to the industry. Following are profiles of the winning projects.
