Advisory Committee

To create our world-class educational conference program, IRE staff works closely with an Advisory Committee and an Education Alliance to design an unsurpassed program that focuses on the latest trends and challenges for professionals involved in the roofing construction and maintenance industry.

This year our distinguished IRE Advisory Committee is made up of ten industry leaders representing contractors, consultants, architects, roofing associations, manufacturers and publications. The committee members reviewed hundreds of "Call for Presentations" forms in order to select the best topics to be included in the IRE Conference Program.
