Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013
11 a.m.â€“1 p.m.
International Roofing Expo®/NRCA Convention
The National Roofing Legal Resource Center (NRLRC) will host a luncheon program
in San Antonio in Room 206AB of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center immediately
following the IRE keynote address Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. instead
of its annual luncheon program.
This venue change will provide a greater opportunity for participation and provide
roofing contractors with a candid and eye-opening discussion from two different
panels of speakers, both of which will share stories about a number of roofing-specific
legal and technical issues you can't afford not to hear.
NRLRCPart 1: ICE Audits: Are You at Risk?
Consistent with the current upward trend in investigations by the
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arm of the Department of Homeland Security,
many employers nationwide have been ordered to submit their I-9 employment eligibility
forms and other documents for inspection
often with little notice. These administrative
audits, which not only can lead to significant fines and penalties but also criminal
charges against a company, appear to be ICE's enforcement mechanism of choice.
As recipients of ICE work site enforcement visits, NRLRC's first speaker panel,
which includes Brad Beldon, president of Beldon Roofing Co., San Antonio, and Scott
Kawulok, executive project manager of B&M Roofing of Colorado Inc., Frederick, Colo.,
will share stories about their unexpected ICE audits to help you determine whether
you are in compliance and prepared should you be ordered to submit your hiring records
NRLRCPart 2: Observations from the Field: Legal Do's and Don'ts
During the second part of the luncheon, NRLRC's expert technical panel will educate
you about how to limit your liability and protect yourself from a number of legal,
technical and relationship problems, including revisions to FM 4470 and the impact
on virtually all of FM's classifications; condensation problems related to white
single- ply membranes; air-barriers in the new IECC 2012; the current state of R-values;
and hurricane Sandy liabilities.
NRLRC is pleased to welcome a panel of distinguished speakers, including Dane Bradford,
president of Bradford Roof Management, Billings, Mont.; Mark S. Graham, NRCA's associate
executive director of technical services, Rosemont, Ill.; and Stephen Phillips,
a partner with the Atlanta-based law firm Hendrick, Phillips, Salzman & Flatt, Atlanta.
