ROSEMONT, Ill. — The Roofing Alliance, the foundation of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), has opened the nomination period for its 2022-23 Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award. The program celebrates workers who are outstanding employees within their companies while recognizing performance outside the workplace, such as charitable deeds, community involvement, challenges overcome and unwavering dedication and commitment to helping others.

As an employer in the roofing industry, an employee can be nominated for one or both of the following categories:

Outstanding Performance and Leadership

Dedicated, reliable employees are vital to a company’s success with one usually standing out above all others with these qualifications:

  • Has a strong work ethic
  • Shows leadership, initiative and resourcefulness
  • Has earned an outstanding safety record
  • Shows support for his or her co-workers
  • Goes above and beyond specific job responsibilities

Outstanding Community Involvement

Outstanding workers not only have a passion for the work they do and a sense of loyalty toward their employers, but they also show compassion for others outside of the workplace displaying:

  • Dedication to bettering their community
  • Exemplary service
  • Leadership
  • Commitment
  • Selfless devotion

The MVP Award program is intended to recognize field and warehouse workers who typically may not be publicly acknowledged for their efforts. Roofing contracting firms and distributor/manufacturer firms are all eligible. Judges are recognized professionals within the roofing industry and include a representative mix of contractors, manufacturers, distributors and suppliers.

One MVP winner will be chosen to be Professional Roofing magazine’s Best of the Best. Professional Roofing and OMG Roofing Products Inc., Agawam, Mass., co-sponsor this elite recognition. The person selected as the Best of the Best winner typically stands out in both categories. In addition to a special prize, the winner will be highlighted in a feature article in Professional Roofing magazine in the spring of 2023.

MVP winners and their nominators will be notified the week of Dec. 5, so winners can plan to attend NRCA’s 136th Annual Convention, March 7-9, 2023, in Dallas. The deadline for nominations is Friday, Sept. 30. Submit your application here.
