A new NTRCA branding campaign was also launched at the annual event. As part of the organization’s rebranding effort, an updated logo was created to set NTRCA apart and to give the association a strong, clear identity. A new tagline, “Who’s On Your Roof?” was designed to reinforce the association’s commitment to serve as the premier resource in North Texas for its members as well as for homeowners and businesses looking for roofing contractors who maintain high standards.

The new tagline is the basis for an upcoming NTRCA campaign that will raise consumer awareness and help arm consumers with questions to ask any roofing contractor before hiring them. The new tagline and logo will be incorporated into all NTRCA communications and marketing efforts, including the website, membership bumper stickers, the NTRCA facebook page and other marketing materials.

“We’re excited to welcome the new board of directors and recognize leaders who exemplify the highest standards and dedication in the roofing industry,” said Karen Vermaire Fox, executive director of NTRCA and owner of Quindigo Management, a Fort Worth-based company that manages trade associations. “We’re also excited to launch a rebranding campaign that will help NTRCA continue to raise the bar in the roofing industry in North Texas.”
