Rosemont, Ill.The National Roofing Contractors Association has announced A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply, Aurora, Ill., has joined NRCA's One Voice initiative as a 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," says Reid Ribble, NRCA's CEO. “However, our work can only be accomplished with commitments from leaders from all sectors of this great industry. 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.
"A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply has always strived to be an advocate for the roofing industry," says Nick V. Polizzi, president of A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply. "As a member of the One Voice initiative, we're looking forward to partnering with NRCA for the opportunity to work with other like-minded companies to unite the roofing industry while tackling critical issues for the future of roofing."
