I hope you had the opportunity to attend the Midwest Roofing
Contractor’s Association (MRCA) National Conference Nov. 12-14 at the Gaylord
Texan Resort & Convention Center near Dallas.
Not only was the venue the most beautiful resort you will
ever be in; the hospitality offered by the MRCA staff was near flawless.
The MRCA’s motto is: A Commitment to Education is a
Commitment to Your Company’s Future.” So it was no surprise that the estimated
1,000 people in attendance were treated to an array of educational programs and
a trade floor full of the newest products in the roofing industry, including
the continued push of advertising for “green” products.
A trusted provider of malls, a genuine supporter of educational facilities, and a reliable booster of automotive plants, Royal Roofing Co. Inc. of Orion, Mich., clearly understands the importance of properly installing commercial roof systems.
The commitment to safety at Belcher Roofing Corporation runs from top to bottom. The Montgomeryville, Pa.-based company, which performs commercial and industrial work, has made a commitment to its employees to continually improve existing safety programs and create a safer working environment.
As the United States becomes more ecology
conscious, Prospect Waterproofing Co. of Sterling, Va., is keeping up with advancements
in green technology and securing its position as a leader in the installation
and maintenance of vegetated roofs.
Contractors learn about installing shingles from
a variety of sources, including on-the-job training, apprenticeship programs,
manufacturer-sponsored seminars and educational opportunities at industry trade
