ROOFPAC raises record amount at the 2023 International Roofing Expo®
Thank you to all our sponsors and donors for your incredible support as NRCA and National Women in Roofing hosted “A Lone Star Evening” during NRCA’s annual convention and the 2023 International Roofing Expo. With your help, we raised a record $63,775 during the live auction and reception at the Loft at Gilley’s Dallas. NRCA also raised $36,429 for ROOFPAC during its successful and popular silent auction, where bidders competed for luxury items such as trips, jewelry and electronics.
NRCA is grateful for many generous sponsors who help underwrite the costs of these events so all proceeds may directly benefit ROOFPAC. Thank you for helping us raise crucial funds for ROOFPAC—your voice on Capitol Hill!
The Freedom to Invest in Tomorrow’s Workforce Act is introduced in the 118th Congress
On March 8, Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) and Reps. Rob Wittman (R-Va.) and Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) reintroduced the Freedom to Invest in Tomorrow’s Workforce Act (S. 722/H.R. 1477). This legislation would give students and workers the freedom to use their 529 savings plans to cover workforce training, certification and credentialing program costs. NRCA, as a member of the Professional Credentialing Coalition, supports this legislation and urges its timely passage.
Sign up today for Roofing Day in D.C. 2023 and book your hotel by March 27
Roofing professionals will gather on Capitol Hill April 18-19 to discuss the critical issues facing their companies and the roofing industry. And you know what? We’re making a big difference. So far, we have increased funding for career and technical education, advanced legislation that addresses workforce development needs and secured a strong buildings component in bipartisan infrastructure legislation.
This year, our Roofing Day in D.C. Advisory Committee, in consultation with industry partners, has picked three issues for Roofing Day in D.C. that unite the industry. First, we will present workforce shortage solutions, focusing on immigration reform, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and funding for Career and Technical Education Perkins State Grants. We also will support important funding for the Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office and support the Main Street Tax Certainty Act, which makes permanent the tax deduction for qualified business income set to expire in 2025.
