Rosemont, Ill.The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has announced EagleView Technologies Inc., Bothell, Wash., has joined NRCA's One Voice Initiative, upgrading its associate membership to "partner member."
In 2017, NRCA launched its One Voice Initiative to unite the roofing industry and speak with one voice about matters critical to the roofing industry's continued success
To ensure all industry sectors are given an opportunity to participate, NRCA amended its bylaws to allow manufacturers, distributors, architects, engineers and consultants that choose to participate to become full members of the association, meaning they will be granted voting rights and eligible for leadership roles within the association. Previously, such rights were reserved only for contractor members.
"NRCA's One Voice Initiative offers a unique opportunity for the roofing industry to address the major issues we face. However, our work can only be accomplished with commitments from leaders from all sectors of this great industry," says Reid Ribble, NRCA's CEO. "Only together as a roofing community can we take this transformational approach to address our issues and concerns and achieve success in the future."
Issues currently affecting the roofing industry include workforce development and certification; advancing the industry's public policy agenda; building codes and insurance; and increasing professionalism throughout the industry.
"EagleView believes strongly in the One Voice mission, and we're excited to participate in this cause," says Piers Dormeyer, EagleView's senior vice president of construction sales. "In order for real, positive change to occur in the roofing industry, alignment is crucial. As a technology leader in construction, we hope to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the table for the benefit of everyone in the industry - contractors, distributors, manufacturers, and service providers."
