This year’s trade show will offer over six hours of Continuing Education Credits through educational seminars. Don’t miss the exhibit floor for products and services from over 120 manufacturers, suppliers and service providers! Kick off the event on Wednesday, January 17 with round table discussions led by CRCA’s Chicagoland Women in Roofing (CWIR) and Emerging Leaders Committees to explore mentorship and multi-generational issues in the workforce, career path structuring and other key topics affecting the industry. Then, continue the networking as you relax and unwind during the Kick-off Cocktail Party as the start of Roofing Week in Chicago. 

On Thursday, January 18, 2024, start your day with the keynote breakfast with speaker Kevin Carey of Mountain Movers.
