Established in 1886, the National Roofing Contractors Association is one of the construction industry's oldest trade associations and the voice of professional roofing contractors worldwide. It is an association of roofing, roof deck and waterproofing contractors; industry-related associate members, including manufacturers, distributors, architects, consultants, engineers and city, state and government agencies; and international members. NRCA has more than 3,500 members from all 50 states and 42 countries and is affiliated with 85 local, state, regional and international roofing contractor associations. NRCA contractor members range in size from companies with less than $1 million in annual sales volumes (46% of the current membership), to large, commercial contractors with annual sales volumes of more than $20 million. Greater than half perform both residential and commercial roofing work, and more than one-third have been in business for more than a quarter of a century.
NRCA's 133rd Annual Convention will be held in conjunction with the 2020 IRE.
CERTA Training Program
The CERTA training program is ideal for contractors whose work involves torch applications. The full-day program trains experienced roof system installers on the safe use of roofing torches used to apply polymer-modified bitumen roofing products. CERTA training shows how proper roof system configuration design and application techniques can result in fire-safe installations. CERTA training sessions are offered each year at IRE (advance registration is required).
Future Executives Instutue
NRCA’s Future Executives Institute is a comprehensive and powerful learning experience focusing on leading and managing a thriving roofing business. This three-year program offers participants an in-depth look at leadership theory and practice, and a unique industry networking opportunity while developing their management and communication skills. FEI is built on 10 core areas essential to small-business operations: leadership, management, strategic planning, human resources, financial management, sales and marketing, roofing industry issues, risk management, family relationships/succession and personal-development skills. Courses are held at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management in Chicago and in conjunction with IRE and are taught by Northwestern University professors, industry leaders and field experts. Class size reflects qualified candidate applications and can vary.
Through NRCA ProCertification, NRCA's national certification initiative, experienced workers who demonstrate substantial roofing skills and knowledge can become certified by NRCA in specific roof system installations. ProCertification exams are offer each year at IRE (you must apply in advance for the exam).
