Founded in 1967, the Virginia Association of Roofing Professionals (VARP) is the trade organization for roofing and related professionals in Virginia. VARP’s mission is to promote the roofing industry in the Commonwealth of Virginia through education and advocacy and to promote high business and ethical standards. VARP is a non-partisan, non-profit organization supported by voluntary membership dues with a broad-based membership including over 130 professional roofing companies.


VARP is pleased to announce the Summer Convention Special Guest Speaker: Lisa Sprick

Lisa Sprick is president of Sprick Roofing Co. Inc., Corvallis, Oregon, a family-owned business established in 1952 that she joined in 1990. The company installs low- and steep-slope roof systems on commercial and residential buildings.

An active NRCA member since 1996, Sprick’s service to the association has included serving two terms on the Executive Committee and three terms on the board of directors. She has chaired numerous NRCA committees, including Career Path, Enterprise Risk Management, Executive Management Institute, Future Executives Institute, the Insurance Board of Governors, NRCA University, Residential Contractor Management, Steep Slope Technical and Workforce Solutions.

Sprick also has served on several task forces, including Asphalt Shingle Repair Manual, OSHA Residential Fall Protection and Strategic Plan Review, and she has testified before Congress on behalf of the roofing industry’s interests.

Sprick has facilitated and presented at a variety of conferences during the past 25 years covering business management, technical roofing installations and safety topics.
