Rosemont, Ill.The National Roofing Contractors Association has announced Andover, Mass.-based ICP Building Solutions Group's Polyset brand 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 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.
"ICP Building Solutions Group's Polyset roofing adhesive brand decided to participate at the One Voice membership level for many reasons," says Max Miller, vice president of Polyset. "First and foremost, we trust in its leadership and direction. In my opinion, actions speak louder than words. NRCA over the last couple of years has been a loud voice for us all. The Polyset brand has been an advocate of training workforce and governmental bodies for over 20 years and has created one of the most trusted and sought-after Qualified Applicator credentials in the industry. Without continual training and education of our current and future workforce, as well as the politicians that govern and make our laws, we and our industry are so very vulnerable. Together, we as One Voice are stronger, more professional and have the unique opportunity to leave the industry better equipped to succeed in the future."
