Roofing Alliance Seeking Nominations for Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award

The award spotlights roofing industry professionals committed to the industry and excellence in roofing.

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, Massachusetts, 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 December 5, so winners can plan to attend NRCA’s 136th Annual Convention, March 7-9, 2023, in Dallas, Texas. The deadline for nominations is Friday, September 30. Submit your application here.

For more information about how to get involved and make a commitment to the Roofing Alliance, please contact Alison L. LaValley, CAE, executive director, at alavalley@nrca.net or visit roofingalliance.net.


Celebrating 25 Years!

Roofing Alliance 25 Anniversary

 

Since its inception in 1996, the Roofing Alliance has remained steadfast in its vision to serve as a valuable, effective and influential organization that shapes, improves and advances the future of the roofing industry. Established in 1996 within the National Roofing Foundation to create an endowment fund to serve as a resource for the roofing industry and its customers, the Roofing Alliance has 173 active members—122 contractors; 35 manufacturers, distributors and suppliers; seven service providers; seven individuals; and two supporting members— who have contributed more than $13 million to the Roofing Alliance’s endowment fund to help preserve and enhance the U.S. roofing industry’s success and performance.

To make the Roofing Alliance work, member participation is vital, and the Roofing Alliance is continually seeking new members. To meet and encourage participation, the Roofing Alliance offers varying levels of membership to encourage small-, medium- and large-sized firms to join and have a voice in determining the roofing industry’s future. Commitments to the Roofing Alliance can be pledged for three- to five-year periods. Public recognition is given in accordance with donors’ wishes and levels of commitment and include national public acknowledgement during NRCA’s annual convention and other special events and programs. Roofing Alliance members also are invited to participate on committees and task forces established to guide the Roofing Alliance’s agenda and are invited to the semiannual meetings and networking events of the full Roofing Alliance.

In addition, roofing professionals are encouraged to support the Melvin Kruger Endowed Scholarship program, which provides financial support for students pursuing careers in the roofing or building construction industries. Gifts to the scholarship program are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law and can be paid during a period of up to and including five years. The Roofing Alliance also provides roofing professionals the opportunity to fulfill their philanthropic goals through its formal Planned Giving Program. Planned giving investments, such as bequests, gifts of real estate or appreciate stock, life insurance policies and retirement plan assets, and charitable trusts from individuals will go a long way to fund research and programs that advance and shape the roofing industry for years to come.

For more information about the Roofing Alliance, contact Alison L. LaValley, CAE, the Roofing Alliance’s executive director, at (847) 493-7573 or alavalley@nrca.net, or visit the Roofing Alliance’s website, www.roofingalliance.net.
