GAF Joins NRCA's One Voice Initiative, Becomes NRCA Partner Member
The National Roofing Contractors Association announced GAF of Parsippany, N.J., 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," saidNRCA's CEO Reid Ribble, . "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.
"GAF is proud to the join NRCA's One Voice initiative to increase awareness of the issues affecting the roofing industry, and to drive for sustainable change," said GAF President, Jim Schnepper.
