The Roofing Alliance, the foundation of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), has released its 2018-2019 Annual Report. The report highlights the organization’s funding initiatives, membership, communications, and awards. It is reported that a total of $281,870 in funding was approved for 2018-2019 going towards the National Women in Roofing Diamond Day Sponsorship, along with continuing funding for employee outreach, construction management schools initiative, Colorado State University’s CM Cares Program, the Gold Circle Awards Program, NRCA’s Silica Objective Data Collection Project, and the continued partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities®. At the time of release, $5,383,923 has been used to fund 46 projects since inception.
A priority was the adoption of 165 standalone Ronald McDonald House roofs by Roofing Alliance and NRCA members. This partnership includes annual roof inspections to ensure the roofs are properly maintained, perform emergency repairs when needed, and be involved when the roof systems need to be replaced. The real work and excitement begins as members reach out to the Houses not only to maintain their roofs but also to connect their staffs through different volunteer opportunities.
The Roofing Alliance is committed to shaping the industry’s future by funding education, research, scholarships, and philanthropic initiatives, all for the purpose of securing the industry’s future excellence. Composed of 170 members representing leaders from the contracting, manufacturing, distribution, and service provider communities, the Roofing Alliance has committed $13 million to enhance the performance and long-term viability of the industry and allocated more than $5 million to fund 48 research, education, technical, and philanthropic programs and projects. Serving as the foundation of the NRCA, Roofing Alliance members are focused on giving back and supporting high-quality educational programs and ensuring timely and forward-thinking industry responses to major economic and technological issues.
