Roofing Alliance

Since its inception in 1996, The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress (The 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 Alliance has grown by 20 percent over the last three years and has 165 active members—115 contractors; 37 manufacturers, distributors and suppliers; five service providers; six individuals; and two supporting members— who have contributed more than $12 million to the Alliance’s endowment fund to help preserve and enhance the U.S. roofing industry’s success and performance.

To make the Alliance work, member participation is vital, and the Alliance is continually seeking new members. To meet and encourage participation, the 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 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. Alliance members also are invited to participate on committees and task forces established to guide the Alliance’s agenda and are invited to the semiannual meetings and networking events of the full 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 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 Alliance, contact Bennett Judson, the Alliance’s executive director, at (800) 323-9545, ext. 7513 or bjudson@roofingindustryalliance.net, or visit the Alliance’s website, www.roofingindustryalliance.net.

Alliance - study of US roofing

A Study of the U.S. Roofing Industry and its Workforce (Electronic) Report

Labor shortages and worker retention issues have created many challenges for the roofing industry. And because there has been little reliable workforce data available, the industry had been ill-equipped to fully understand the magnitude of these challenges.  To help bridge the gap, in 2019, the Roofing Alliance commissioned Arizona State University to study current roofing workforce demographics, including types of work, skilled and unskilled labor shortages, effects of labor shortages at national and regional scales, and industry challenges and potential solutions. Get your copy and you can access all the findings from this comprehensive survey.
