SRS Distribution Inc. Joins NRCA's One Voice Initiative, Becomes NRCA Partner Member
Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has announced SRS Distribution Inc., McKinney, Texas, 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.
"We are honored to join NRCA as a full member and put our resources and support behind the One Voice initiative to help advance our great industry. SRS is passionate about giving back and we believe strongly in investing in new talent and technology to improve the future," says Dan Tinker, president and CEO of SRS. "We stand ready to assist NRCA in any way necessary when called upon to enhance this noble and important profession."
