The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) invites roofing contractors and their crews to head to the nation’s capital and make their voices heard during the 2022 Roofing Day.

After going virtual in 2021 due to the pandemic, Roofing Day is back for an in-person event on April 5 and 6. RC Publisher Jill Bloom sits down with Teri Dorn, the NRCA director of political affairs, to discuss what’s new about this year’s event and what contractors can expect. This includes information on relaxed COVID-19 safety protocols.

Roofing professionals will gather on Capitol Hill to speak with members of Congress and their representatives about important issues facing the industry, whether it is immigration reform or investing into career and technical education to encourage the next generation to pursue the skilled trades. The NRCA has coordinated a panel of experts who will give pointers for those who attend, and the association handles scheduling the meetings with Congress.

“The top issues we’re going to be presenting and going to members of Congress and their staff about are issues that have been cultivated and collaboratively agreed upon by all walks of the industry,” said Dorn.

The itinerary also includes a member of Congress who will speak to attendees on April 5 as well as a cocktail reception. For more information and to register, visit Visit our podcast page for the audio version of this interview.
