Board of Directors

National Women in Roofing (NWIR) is pleased to announce several changes to the association’s leadership on the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is the governing body of the organization and is responsible for overseeing the implementation of NWIR’s mission, strategy, and goals.

Anna Anderson of Art Unlimited will be joining the Executive Committee, with several other members completing their terms on the Board of Directors and some new members coming into new leadership positions. Other officers of the association and current members of the Executive Committee include: Renae Bales, KPost Roofing and Waterproofing; Michelle Boykin, Rackley Roofing; Jennifer Keegan, GAF; and Jennifer Stone, Johns Manville.

Past chairs Shari Carlozzi and Heidi Ellsworth remain engaged in the association, chairing special committees and providing advice and counsel regularly to the association and to women throughout the industry.

“We normally make these transitions in February at NWIR Day,” said Ellen Thorp, executive director. “Everything is a little bit different living through the pandemic and pivoting to virtual meetings, but NWIR has continued to grow and even flourish during this time.”

A sincere note of gratitude to the following members of the Board who have completed their terms: Melissa Mulligan Chapman, The GLO Group; Melissa Walker, Johns Manville; and Chelsea Steinbock, BlueRidge Roofing and Construction. A warm welcome to the members who have been nominated to serve a term on the Board of Directors: Brittany Wimbish, Fields Roof Service; Kelley Caron, OMG® Roofing Products; and Kyrah Coker, National Roofing Partners.
