The National Roofing Contractors Association has announced Carlisle Construction Materials LLC has joined NRCA's One Voice initiative, upgrading its associate membership to "partner member."
In early 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.
"Now is the perfect time to launch NRCA's One Voice initiative. There is unique opportunity for the roofing industry to address the major issues we face. 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 the industry's public policy agenda; building codes and insurance; and increasing professionalism throughout the industry.
"CCM is looking forward to working with the NRCA to help address some of the issues that challenge and limit the U.S. roofing industry," says John Altmeyer, CCM's president and CEO. "By working together in a cooperative and imaginative manner, roofing manufacturers and contractors can insure their respective futures are successful and the roofing needs of building owners are met."
