ATAS Participates In Washington, DC Roofing Day Event
Allentown, PA - ATAS International was proud to participate in the
second annual Roofing Day event in Washington, DC on April 3rd and 4th. This event is organized by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) so that roofing industry professionals from across the country can meet with members of Congress
about critical issues facing the industry.
In addition to roofing material manufacturers, others in attendance included raw material suppliers, distributors, roof system designers, engineers, consultants, contractors and their employees. Many people from these companies, trade associations, and
organizations visited their Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill to discuss concerns and request their support.
During Roofing Day, support of the following issues was advocated:
• Immigration reform that meets the roofing industry's workforce needs
• Expanded workforce training incentives
• A robust buildings component for infrastructure legislation
While in DC, ATAS also
attended the National Women in Roofing (NWiR) Luncheon and heard presentations by Congresswoman Angie Craig and Congresswoman Suzan DelBene. ATAS is a platinum sponsor of this association whose mission is to mentor and empower women in the roofing
industry towards excellence in their chosen career.
Dick Bus, President of ATAS International and Director on the Board of the NRCA, stated, “ATAS was pleased to attend NRCA’s Roofing Day event this year, and ask for support on many issues that are affecting the construction and manufacturing
industries. It was also great to participate in the NWiR luncheon, and meet many women who are supporting other women working in roofing and related industry careers.“
