ABC Supply Co. Inc. Joins NRCA's One Voice Initiative, Becomes NRCA Partner Member
Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has announced ABC Supply Co. Inc., Beloit, Wis., has joined NRCA's One Voice initiative, upgrading its associate membership to "partner member." In early 2017, NRCA launched its One Voice initiative aimed at collectively recognizing threats to the industry and the opportunities they may present. To do so, NRCA has undertaken a campaign to unite the roofing industry and speak with one voice on matters of industry importance. To ensure all industry sectors are given an opportunity to participate, NRCA amended its bylaws to allow manufacturers, distributors, architects, engineers and consultants that choose to participate to become full members of the association, meaning they will be granted voting rights and eligible for leadership roles within the association. Previously, such rights were reserved only for contractor members.
NRCA's One Voice initiative initially will focus on developing a national worker training and certification program, legislative efforts and advocacy.
"ABC Supply is pleased to support the NRCA's One Voice initiative. We believe this effort will improve our ability to successfully address the challenges facing the roofing industry," says Mike Jost, ABC Supply Co. Inc.'s vice president of operations.
