NRCA Membership Terms and Conditions

As an NRCA member, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of NRCA membership as set forth below. NRCA may change its membership terms and conditions at any time without notice, and each member’s continued participation in NRCA shall be considered acceptance of such changes.

An NRCA membership term is 12 months. Companies and individuals can purchase consecutive terms when payment is received at the start of the initial term. The term of membership is based on the anniversary date of joining NRCA (joining NRCA in April means your membership will expire at the end of April the following year.) You also can elect an auto-renew option where your dues will renew automatically every year.

NRCA membership may be granted to any company, corporation, individual or other entity that:

  • Meets the criteria set forth for the appropriate NRCA membership category
  • Shares interest in and supports the purposes of NRCA
  • Abides by NRCA’s bylaws, Pledge of Professionalism, membership terms and conditions, and other policies, rules and regulations NRCA adopts
  • Meets additional criteria for the appropriate NRCA membership category as established by NRCA’s board of directors and/or Executive Committee

Applicants for NRCA membership must submit a complete and accurate membership application along with the appropriate dues payment. Applicants must provide accurate contact information and select the appropriate membership category based on the company’s or individual’s role in the roofing industry and, in some cases, annual sales volume. Applications will be approved by NRCA, and qualified applicants will become members upon notice from NRCA.

Any established roofing, roof deck, roof system and/or waterproofing contractor located in the United States or its possessions actively engaged in the application of roofing materials, roof systems, waterproofing, roof decks and/or related sheet metal may be granted Active Membership in NRCA. Each company, corporation or other entity granted Active Membership in NRCA shall file with NRCA’s chief executive officer the name of the individual selected to be the entity’s NRCA representative with the authority to vote and hold office on the entity’s behalf. Upon the acceptance of any Affiliated Group, the chief staff executive of such group will have the privilege of one vote, and he or she will be considered an Active Member provided he or she is not otherwise eligible to hold an active membership in NRCA.

Honorary membership in NRCA may be granted by a majority vote of NRCA’s Executive Committee for such time and with such privileges as the Executive Committee determines.

Any individual, company, corporation or other entity engaged in the manufacturing and/or supplying of materials, equipment and/or services used by the Active Membership of NRCA; or any firm or individual engaged in the design, specification and/or inspection of roofs, roof decks and roof systems may be granted Associate Membership in NRCA. NRCA’s board of directors or its designee(s) may, from time to time, establish various categories of Associate Membership as well as the dues, benefits, privileges and obligations of such categories. Each company, corporation, individual or other entity granted Associate Membership in NRCA shall file with NRCA’s chief executive officer the name of the individual selected to be the NRCA representative with the authority to vote and hold office on the representative’s behalf.

Firms or institutions that employ the services of active members of NRCA and wish to be associated with NRCA can become industrial/institutional members. Dues, benefits, privileges and obligations of industrial/institutional members will be determined by NRCA’s board of directors and/or Executive Committee.

Companies, corporations, individuals or other entities engaged in the roofing industry outside the United States and its possessions that would otherwise qualify for active membership in NRCA can become International members. Dues, benefits, privileges and obligations of international members shall be determined by NRCA’s board of directors and/or Executive Committee.

NRCA membership dues vary by a company’s or individual’s category of membership and are based on either the annual sales volume of roofing-related revenue or specific dues rate for the appropriate membership category. Members can pay dues with a single dues payment, a monthly recurring dues option or a quarterly recurring dues option. Members also can renew their dues through NRCA’s automatic renewal option.

Members can pay by check, Automated Clearing House (ACH) or preauthorize renewal payments for annual membership dues using a credit card in one of three ways:

  1. Full Payment by Check or ACH Terms:
    Pay the current annual NRCA membership dues in a single payment. No additional dues payments are required for the year. Prior to your membership anniversary, a renewal invoice will be sent unless your membership has previously been canceled or terminated.

  2. Full Payment by Credit Card or ACH Terms:
    Pay the current annual NRCA membership dues in a single payment. Your membership renewal will be billed one year later and each following year at the applicable NRCA dues rate. If automatic renewal is chosen, NRCA will apply the same form of payment used at the time you joined for the next year’s renewal (and so on).

  3. Monthly or Quarterly Payment by Credit Card or ACH Terms:
    Pay the annual membership dues amount in either 12 monthly installment payments or four quarterly installments; by doing so, you are committing to a 12-month NRCA membership. Payments will recur every 30 days or quarterly thereafter. Renewal payments will continue on the same schedule on your renewal date and any future renewal date at the applicable NRCA dues rate with the same form of payment used at the time you joined NRCA or on your most recent dues renewal date.

Choosing option 2 or 3 and selecting an automatic renewal option will opt you in for preauthorized automatic renewal dues payments. NRCA will provide an email acknowledgment of the transaction. Once a payment has been processed, NRCA will send an acknowledgement showing how payment has been applied. Please print and retain a copy of this automatic renewal authorization for your records.

NRCA will notify you before implementing any change to the terms of the automatic dues membership renewal by sending a notification email, including the updated automatic membership renewal terms, cancellation policy and contact information to cancel.

A 3% credit card surcharge will be applied to the membership fee due less any applied discount(s) at the time of checkout. Monthly or quarterly recurring selections also will incur a 3% credit card surcharge to each recurring payment scheduled for processing until dues are paid in full.

In the case of a check or ACH returned as nonsufficient funds, NRCA will make an attempt to communicate with you to select an alternative payment arrangement. A nonsufficient funds fee of $30 will be added to the outstanding balance due.

If you cancel your membership prior to one year, the remaining prorated dues amount will be due—and processed—immediately. To cancel your membership or change your automatic annual membership renewal or preauthorized installment payments of NRCA membership dues, you must contact NRCA at (800) 323-9545 or membership@nrca.net at least 10 days prior to the anniversary renewal date and specify the service(s) you wish to cancel.

Dues to NRCA are not deductible as a charitable contribution but are deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. However, a portion of dues is not deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense to the extent that NRCA engages in lobbying. The nondeductible portion of dues attributable to this provision currently is 5.5%.

Members will be adequately alerted if their dues become past due and termination of NRCA membership is being considered. Active membership status will cease upon a lapse of 60 days delinquency in payment of annual dues.

Failure to comply with NRCA’s terms and conditions may result in the suspension or termination of your NRCA membership; such suspension or termination will be determined by the sole and absolute discretion of NRCA. Additionally, NRCA may pursue legal action and/or equitable remedies.

NRCA respects the privacy of members and treats their personal and financial information as confidential. NRCA will not disclose any information specific to a member company without prior written permission or authorization.

The NRCA member logo features the NRCA shield and membership designation. This designation is reserved exclusively for members in good standing. If your membership has lapsed, use of the logo on any public listings, materials, websites, contracts, marketing materials, etc., is prohibited.
