Advisory Committee

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 in the roofing construction and maintenance industry.

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

We want to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to our Advisory Committee for their time, hard work, and dedication to helping us develop the IRE conference program.
