Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association is inviting all roofing industry professionals to celebrate National Roofing Week Aug. 23-29.
Each year, National Roofing Week increases awareness about the significance of roofs to every home and business and shares the good deeds of the industry. NRCA encourages industry professionals to participate in National Roofing Week by engaging in their communities and informing the public about the essential role roofs and professional roofing contractors play in every community.
In celebration of National Roofing Week, NRCA will host the We are Family Raffle, sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply, Aurora, Ill. Open to all NRCA member companies, the raffle involves companies taking a group photo of all employees—their roofing family—and submitting it to NRCA for a chance to win a prize. NRCA encourages members to stay safe and practice social distancing when necessary when preparing their raffle entry. The deadline for entries is Wednesday, Aug. 19.
Additionally, in the spirit of the industry’s generosity, NRCA Giving Day will be held Tuesday, Aug. 25, to benefit the Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship Program. The Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship Program helps individuals seeking to further their education to pursue careers in the roofing or building construction industries; employees of NRCA contractor and supplier members and their families are eligible.
NRCA also will share roofing professionals’ stories through its social media outlets and Professional Roofing magazine. Companies throughout the U.S. are encouraged to share their stories of charitable giving, crew and staff appreciation, employee training and signature roofing projects with NRCA.
National Roofing Week 2020 is sponsored by ABC Supply Co. Inc., Beloit, Wis.; A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply; Carlisle SynTec, Carlisle, Pa.; GAF, Parsippany, N.J.; National Women in Roofing; and Polyglass U.S.A., Inc., Deerfield Beach, Fla.
