The Gold Circle
Awards program recognizes Alliance and NRCA members for outstanding contributions to the roofing industry. Unique
roofing-related jobs, programs and services completed between June 1, 2016, and May 31, 2018, are eligible for the program. To be considered for a Gold Circle Award,
Alliance and NRCA members are nominated by their peers and community for significant contributions to the roofing
industry in the following categories:
Submit examples of a particularly challenging job, difficult design job, abnormal working conditions, difficult
materials used, etc., to showcase your work.
Did you have a particularly difficult job, find a smart solution to a problem or install environmentally friendly
projects? Clearly explain what makes your project so innovative.
Safety Preparedness and Performance
Safety is paramount in roofing, and if you had a job that exemplified excellent safety preparedness, submit an entry that
includes a description of the following:
Specific safety considerations that were considered and included in the proposal as the job was being bid.
The written safety plan created after selection.
How safety was integrated into unique job elements that gave rise to creative solutions and procedures, for
example, where multiple trades or unique worker or public protection issues existed.
Examples of how and why the plan needed to be revised as the project continued.
Your plan for fall prevention.
What safety policies and/or procedures were revised/created as a result of a post-job safety review.
All entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges within the roofing industry. The highest-ranking entries will
determine the winner.
