Rosemont, Ill.NRCA invites all roofing industry professionals to come together for Roofing Day in D.C. 2020 April 21-22. The event elevates the image of the industry and shares its message with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Roofing Day in D.C. brings together roofing contractors, distributors, manufacturers and other industry professionals from throughout the U.S. to voice the industry’s priorities to Congress. It is crucial members of Congress see roofing professionals and hear about the critical issues facing the roofing industry.
"Help us demonstrate the depth of talent and diversity in our great industry," says Reid Ribble, NRCA's CEO. "As 2020 is an election year, it is especially important for you to participate in Roofing Day in D.C. 2020."
All roofing professionals are urged to participate and consider bringing one or more employees.
Roofing Day in D.C. is the largest advocacy event dedicated solely to the roofing industry. Stakeholders in attendance will visit with members of Congress to advocate for the roofing industry regarding issues on which there is broad consensus: increased funding for career and technical education programs; immigration reform that meets the roofing industry's workforce needs; legislation to advance the use of energy-efficiency technologies; and legislation to prohibit reverse auctions in federal construction procurement.
