The award is in honor of Bennett Judson, who is also the first recipient. She received the award during a Roofing Alliance ceremony at NRCA’s Fall Meetings. Receiving the first annual Bennett Award, Judson was recognized as an individual who makes things happen for the betterment of the roofing industry.
Judson began her career at NRCA more than 40 years ago. As the executive director of the Roofing Alliance since 2003, she has embodied the type of leadership that truly brings the highest level of professionalism to the roofing industry.
“The Bennett Award acknowledges the venerable Bennett Judson and her inspiring 40-year career in the roofing industry,” said Dave Lawlor, the 2021/22 Roofing Alliance president. “Bennett is an exemplary team player who is also organized, passionate, tireless, professional, humble and positive. Anyone who has had the pleasure to work with or alongside her knows this recognition is well deserved.”
Future Bennett Awards will be presented annually and recognize individuals who volunteer and offer notable positive accomplishments on behalf of the Roofing Alliance and industry. This recognition will be presented to future honorees during the Roofing Alliance spring meeting.
