In addition to dynamic keynote speakers and presentations from industry leaders, the Storm Restoration Contractor (SRC) Summit is celebrating diversity in the industry.

Held Jan. 21-23 at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas, the SRC Summit is inviting women in the industry to bond with like-minded women in a male-dominated industry. The SRC Summit brings contractors from around the country together for a three-day conference filled with networking, education, relationship building and more.

Among the events taking place this year is a women leadership panel at 3 p.m. on Jan 22 consisting of visionary female leaders in the storm restoration industry. The leadership panel is made up of the following members:

  • Stefany Dant, co-founder of Soderburg Roofing and Contracting
  • Erika Girard, owner of StoneScape Steel Roofing and Construction
  • April Hall, president of Storm Consultants and the SRC Summit
  • Whitni Graves, co-owner of ScopePro Management
  • Debbie Smith, project manager of Crest Exteriors
  • Elizabeth Calzadilla, CEO of Business 411
  • Flo Tarque, director of business development at ATA Loss Consulting
  • Stephanie Giesel, founding partner of Brahma Roofing and Construction

In addition to the panel, the SRC Summit is hosting a women's networking luncheon at 12:15 p.m. on Jan. 21. Because inclusion is important to the SRC Summit, all women who are registered to attend will be automatically included in the luncheon at no additional price.
