Roofing Industry Stakeholders Meet with Elected Officials Today for Roofing Day in D.C. 2018, the Largest Advocacy Event Dedicated to the Roofing Industry
Washington, D.C.More than 400 roofing industry stakeholders from 47 states are in Washington, D.C., today meeting with their elected officials for Roofing Day in D.C. 2018. Led by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) and more than 20 partner associations and organizations, the event is an unprecedented effort to elevate the image of the roofing industry and share its message with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Roofing Day in D.C. 2018 is among the top 10 percent of all national legislative fly-in events and the largest advocacy event dedicated solely to the roofing industry. Participants will visit with members of Congress and discuss three issues on which there is broad consensus within the roofing industry: regulatory reform, workforce development and immigration reform. About 85 percent of Congress will hear from roofing industry stakeholders during the event.
"NRCA is excited to lead this industrywide effort to bring the message of the roofing industry straight to our elected officials," says Reid Ribble, NRCA's CEO. "Thanks goes out to the more than 400 stakeholders who travelled to D.C. today to advocate for our great industry."
