The Roofing Alliance, the foundation of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), announced the release of a special eBook celebrating the Top 25 Accomplishments of the Roofing Alliance over the past 25 years.
Starting with the inception of the Roofing Alliance in 1995, the eBook notes, “The Board of Trustees of the National Roofing Foundation decided to either ‘fold up the tent’ or make the foundation a real organization. Consultant Charlie Fazio was hired to do a feasibility study and believed the founders could build an endowment fund of $6 million. NRCA President Bennett Hutchison secured commitments from a group of NRCA contractor leaders and fundraising began in earnest.”
The eBook also highlights the $1 million donation by Firestone Building Products that launched the capital campaign for the new foundation now over 25 years ago. It summarizes the many successful research programs, philanthropy initiatives and technology and sustainability programs that have defined its mission of promoting the advancement of roofing through research, education, technology and charitable programs.
“This is a succinct and interesting means of really understanding the overwhelming influence of the Roofing Alliance for the betterment of the roofing industry,” said Dave Lawlor, Roofing Alliance president. “I would encourage every roofing professional to download the eBook and share it with your company and others in the roofing industry. It is an excellent reflection of the outstanding professionalism of our industry.”
