On March 15 the Centers for Disease Control strongly recommended the cancellation of all events involving more than 50 participants because of the ongoing public health crisis related to the novel coronavirus. Also on March 15, the District of Columbia government issued regulatory guidance effectively prohibiting meetings of more than 250 people within Washington, D.C.
In light of this situation and after careful consideration with the health and safety of participants foremost in mind, Roofing Day in D.C. 2020, scheduled for April 21-22, has been cancelled. Unfortunately, given the unique size and scope of Roofing Day in D.C. 2020, it is not feasible for the event to be rescheduled during the remainder of this year. More information will be sent soon regarding hotel cancelations and other details.
NRCA will begin planning for Roofing Day in D.C. 2021, which will be held on March 23-24, 2021, so please save these dates. Your registration fees for Roofing Day in D.C. 2020 will be rolled over and applied to Roofing Day in D.C. 2021. If you will be unable to attend in 2021, please contact NRCA’s Washington, D.C., office at (800) 338-5765.
Please know this was a difficult decision, and NRCA is extremely disappointed Roofing Day in D.C. 2020 will not take place. However, it is clearly the correct decision at this time given the threat to the health and safety of participants and recent actions by government bodies. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
