NRCA's new partnership with Hanley Wood LLC, Washington, D.C.,
to produce NRCA's 118th Annual Convention and the International
Roofing Expo 2005 undoubtedly will bring changes to the event, but
many aspects will remain intact—including the awards NRCA
bestows on industry professionals.
During the convention and expo, which will be held Feb. 14-18,
in Orlando, Fla., NRCA once again will honor winners of its Gold
Circle Awards, Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards and Excellence in
Design Award. Deadlines for all three awards are soon approaching,
and I urge you to consider nominating yourself, a colleague or an
employee for the honors.
As one of NRCA's most popular and sought-after awards, the Gold
Circle Awards have come to symbolize overall excellence in the
roofing industry. The awards recognize outstanding workmanship and
innovative solutions in low- and steep-slope applications, service
to the industry and service to the community. This year's
application deadline is Sept. 10. For an application or more
information contact Chrystine Hanus, NRCA's executive assistant, at
(800) 323-9545, Ext. 7522, or firstname.lastname@example.org or Esther Woods,
NRCA's operations coordinator, at (800) 323-9545, Ext. 7517, or
NRCA and The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress co-sponsor
the MVP Awards, which recognize outstanding roofing workers in the
United States, Canada and Mexico. Candidates may be nominated for
excellence in any or all of the following categories: on-the-job
performance; attracting and retaining roofing workers; contributing
to a team effort; community service and volunteerism; and other
noteworthy contributions and activities. For an entry form and more
information about the MVP Awards, contact Bennett Judson, executive
director of the National Roofing Foundation, at (800) 323-9545,
Ext. 7513, or
