Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association has announced PABCO Roofing Products, Tacoma, Wash., 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 weface. 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 theindustry's public policy agenda; building codes and insurance; and increasing professionalism throughout the industry.
"The roofing community is strong and diverse with a wealth of knowledge and experience," says John Corbett, vice president and general manager of PABCO Roofing Products. "By working together to positively impact the challenges facing us all, I am confident we will effect change that will enhance our industry and strengthen our future. We are proud to support NRCA's One Voice initiative."
