Roofing Day in D.C. 2019 participants met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to advocate for the industry

On April 3-4, NRCA members and other roofing professionals joined with partner organizations from all segments of the roofing industry for Roofing Day in D.C. Four hundred and twenty-eight registered attendees participated in the event, and the industry’s collective voice resonated in the halls of Congress.

Annual advocacy

Roofing Day in D.C. 2019 was the second annual industry-wide advocacy event designed to enhance the industry's image and expand its influence on policymaking in Washington, D.C. The event gives everyone in the roofing industry, including contractors, manufacturers, distributors, consultants and field workers, an opportunity to meet with their senators and representatives on Capitol Hill to build relationships and advocate for policies that will benefit the industry.

Roofing Day in D.C. is a core component of the One Voice initiative NRCA launched in 2017 to unite the roofing industry and marshal greater resources to speak collectively about matters critical to the industry's growth and continued success. NRCA CEO Reid Ribble believes contractors, manufacturers, distributors, consultants and other professionals share common interests regarding key issues such as government policy, building codes and workforce training. The One Voice initiative was developed through extensive discussions between NRCA and industry stakeholders during which a clear consensus emerged to move the industry forward in a united manner.
