National Roofing Contractors Association Encourages All Industry Stakeholders to Participate in Roofing Day in D.C. 2018

Roofing Day in D.C., taking place March 6-7, is an unprecedented effort to elevate the image of the roofing industry and share its message with lawmakers on Capitol Hill. 

NRCA is urging all roofing professionals—NRCA members and nonmembers—to participate and consider bringing one or more employees.

 “To effect change in Washington and elevate the image of the roofing industry, we must speak with one voice: contractors, distributors, manufacturers, designers, labor and management together,” says Reid Ribble, NRCA’s CEO. “When we are united and organized, we present our industry as a united voting body.”

Roofing Day in D.C. will bring together all industry stakeholders from across the U.S. with a goal of having every state represented in Washington D.C. It will be the largest advocacy event dedicated solely to the roofing industry.
NRCA has selected three issues for discussion with members of Congress that are matters on which there is broad focus within the roofing industry. They are: 

Regulatory reform: The roofing industry supports the Regulatory Accountability Act (RAA), bipartisan legislation aimed at reducing burdensome regulation by reforming the regulatory development process.

Workforce development: The roofing industry supports legislation to address the chronic workforce shortages in the industry by improving career and technical education (CTE).

Immigration reform: Roofing industry employers provide good jobs for qualified workers but face chronic workforce shortages because of an aging workforce and other demographic trends. The industry supports immigration reforms that include increased border security, improved workplace enforcement, providing for temporary workers to enter the U.S. legally when our economy needs them, and addressing the existing unauthorized workforce in a balanced manner.
