Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association has announced that Boral Roofing LLC, Irvine, Calif., has joined NRCA's One Voice initiative, joining NRCA 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 be 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.
"Boral Roofing is proud to join NRCA's One Voice initiative," says Eric Miller, vice president of sales and marketing for Boral Roofing. "United together, we will ensure our collective voice is heard, protecting and enhancing the roofing industry at large."
