The Roofing Alliance Announces New 2020-2021 Leadership

The Roofing Alliance mirrors the best of the roofing industry.  Made up of all roofing professionals including manufacturers, distributors, service providers, and contractors, they sit next to each other with equal voting rights, working on how they can fund important initiatives, education and charities supported by the roofing industry.  The volunteer leadership are dedicated roofing professionals who offer their combined talents and commitment to guide this important foundation.
The Roofing Alliance was established within the National Roofing Foundation (NRF) to create a permanent endowment fund to serve as a highly focused resource for the roofing industry.  As the Foundation of NRCA, its objectives are to fund research projects while also supporting and funding charitable and educational programs. 
Currently, the Roofing Alliance provides funding and resources to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC ®). The Roofing Alliance and NRCA contractors have adopted the roofs of 165 stand-alone Ronald McDonald House programs, providing service and maintenance to help keep families together while their child receives medical care. The Roofing Alliance is also committed to career technical education; notably hosting an annual Construction Management Student Competition during the International Roofing Expo®.
