One of the weird things about working on a website and a monthly magazine is that you spend a large chunk of your time working in the future. It’s not even Christmas yet, but we’re already working on the January issue of Roofing Contractor and the first print issue of ARW. We’re also working on the show dailies for the 2012 International Roofing Expo, which will be held Feb. 22-24 in Orlando, Fla.

I know the IRE seems a long way off now, but it will be here before you know it. If you have any show-related news or if you’re launching a new product at the show, please let us know and we can possibly include an announcement in the IRE show dailies.

Feel free to e-mail me any press releases or contact me for more information at

For new product releases, just send a 100-word write-up, a JPG photo, and your website and booth number. The deadline is Dec. 31.

Now, where is that DeLorean? I have to some Christmas shopping to do.
