This hospitality event will be an opportunity for roofing industry professionals to network with peers. In keeping with National WinR's mission, the 90 minutes event is focused on creating educational, mentoring and networking opportunities for those interested in membership. The event will be held Tuesday, Feb. 16 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm at Executive Ballroom H located inside the Rosen Center.
Lindy Ryan, NRCA's first female Chairman of the Board and Heidi J. Ellsworth, Chairperson of WinR, will both share how women can find strong and lasting career paths in roofing and how women are making a difference in the overall industry. Ryan will speak about her remarkable corporate and volunteer leadership tenure in the traditionally male-dominated roofing industry. Ryan's positive message of focusing on the job, not the gender, offers a powerful lesson in developing talent across our rapidly diversifying industry. Ellsworth will share the vision for National WinR and its role as a national industry association, officially launching at the largest annual industry-related event.
