On March 6-7, the roofing industry came together in Washington, D.C., for Roofing Day in D.C. 2018. The event was a
resounding success with more than 400 professionals from all segments of the roofing industry coming together to
deliver our industry message with "one voice" to Congress. From states as far as Hawaii and Alaska, roofing
professionals from all segments of the industry showed up and made a lasting impression on legislators, bringing to
their attention our urgent need for regulatory reform, enhanced career and technical educational programs, and
immigration reform that meets our workforce needs. Make plans now to join us next year for the industry's second (and now annual) Roofing Day in D.C., April 3-4, 2019. Details about the event will be available in late
Led by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) and more than 23 partner associations and organizations, the
event was an unprecedented effort to elevate the image of the roofing industry and share its message with lawmakers on
Roofing Day in D.C. 2018 was among the top 10 percent of all national legislative fly-in events and the largest
advocacy event dedicated solely to the roofing industry. Participants visited with members of Congress and discussed
three issues on which there is broad consensus within the roofing industry: regulatory reform, workforce development
and immigration reform.
"NRCA is excited to have led 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 traveled to
D.C. today to advocate for our great industry."
NRCA and partner organizations already are planning for the second Roofing Day in D.C., which will be held April 3-4, 2019. NRCA will provide more information as it becomes available. We hope you'll be
able to join us for this can't-miss industrywide event!
