Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association has announced Georgia-Pacific Gypsum LLC, Atlanta, has joined NRCA’s One Voice initiative as its 40th 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.”
“Georgia-Pacific Gypsum is honored to join NRCA’s One Voice initiative. For more than 120 years, NRCA has been a valued resource for roofing contractors. The vision set forth around safety, training and increasing professionalism throughout the industry is one we all can stand behind,” says Greg Hudson, director of commercial Dens® sales for Georgia-Pacific Gypsum.
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.
