Class description

These days, politics is affecting your business and your everyday life more than ever. It’s critical individual citizens and organizations properly educate government policymakers about key issues and concerns so they take appropriate action.

NRCA, through its Washington, D.C., office, works full time to influence the federal government to be responsive to the roofing industry’s needs. It is even more powerful when there is direct communication from constituents to their lawmakers—it ensures constituents’ voices are heard and leads to building and sustaining long-term relationships.

In this one-hour webinar, NRCA CEO Reid Ribble and NRCA staff from the Washington, D.C., office will discuss the benefits of expressing your ideas to your government representatives and making a difference in Washington, D.C., on behalf of your business and industry. The presenters also will include information about the industry’s push to collectively influence Congress during Roofing Day in D.C. 2019 April 3-4.

About the presenters:

Responsive imageBefore coming to NRCA as CEO in 2017, Reid Ribble served six years in the U.S. House of Representatives. During his tenure, he served on the Agriculture, Transportation and Infrastructure; Budget and Finance; and Foreign Affairs Committees where he served as vice chairman of the Committee on Emerging Threats. During his time in Congress, Reid met with more than 25 heads of state, and in his capacity on the Committee on Foreign Affairs traveled extensively throughout Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Yet roofing is in his blood. For more than 30 years, Reid was the president of his own roofing company in Kaukauna, Wis. As a roofing contractor, he volunteered countless hours serving on numerous NRCA committees and NRCA's board of directors. As part of his 25 years of service to the organization, Reid served as NRCA's president (now called chairman of the board) from 2005-06.

He married DeaNa, his high-school sweetheart, in 1975. They have two married children and four grandchildren.

From 1993 to 2007, Duane served as senior associate at Schramm, Williams & Associates Inc., a government affairs consulting firm in Washington, D.C., where he represented clients before Congress and federal agencies on a variety of issues. Duane also worked on Capitol Hill as a legislative assistant to Representative Wally Herger (R-Calif.), a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means.
