Justification Toolkit

We understand it can be difficult to ask for approval to attend the 2018 International Roofing Expo [IRE], February 6-8, in New Orleans, so we have created this Justification Toolkit to assist with gaining approval. We encourage you to review the materials in this section to gain a greater understanding of the IRE and how to communicate the value it can provide when attempting to hack attendance approval from your manager.
 
IRE has created 3 simple steps in order to gain funding for your attendance in one convenient location. With expert advice, pre-conference justification documents and post-conference reporting templates, your manager or supervisor is sure to appreciate the investment made into your training and development as well as to your company's success.
 
Below are the contents of the Justification Toolkit to help you explain why you should be attending the 2018 IRE. 

 

Cost and Benefits Worksheet

Download the cost benefit worksheet to calculate the cost of attending and organize your key objectives for attending the expo and/or conference programs.

Justification Letter

The Justification Letter will help you with "the ask." Simply complete the areas in yellow and customize it to fit your needs.

Post-Show Report

Complete the Post-Show Report and submit to your supervisor so they can see how valuable the IRE trip was.

Remember: You should be ready to answer any question that your supervisor may have. After you provide all the necessary information to your supervisor, he/she will assess the information before making the decision. Your supervisor’s decision will likely depend on the information you provide and how well you sell the benefits of attending the convention. Good luck!
