As I was saying …

The roofing community

We at NRCA hear criticism, from time to time, that NRCA cannot properly represent roofing contractors' best interests because it allows suppliers to participate as associate members.

Put politely, this is an idea whose time has long since passed.

Consider the issues roofing contractors tell NRCA are most important to them: finding, training and keeping qualified workers; staying informed about changes in materials, codes and standards; getting current information about energy and environmental issues; knowing about best practices in safety and risk management; and having a strong voice in Washington, D.C.

Are these issues somehow unique to roofing contractors and not to their suppliers? Hardly.
