Attendees will have the chance to learn from Sarah Jane Jelin and her experiences in becoming a certified women-owned business and the opportunities that it presents.  

National Women in Roofing (NWIR) Day is taking place on Sunday, February 4, just prior to the International Roofing Expo in New Orleans. Part of the day’s activities will include round table sessions where attendees can share their expertise and learn about new topics at the same time. 

One roundtable will focus on the benefits of becoming a Certified Women’s Business Enterprise. Sarah Jane Jelin will host the table. As president and owner of KARNAK, a Certified Women’s Business Enterprise that manufactures and supplies reflective coatings, cements, and sealants for roofing and waterproofing, Sarah is knowledgeable about the process as well as the benefits. 

A WBE is an independent business that is at least 51% owned and controlled by one or more women and whose formation and principal place of business is in the U.S. or its territories. In most cases, for companies and government entities to claim a tax incentive, they will need to be sure they are working with a certified WBE.  

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, Inc. (WBENC), founded in 1997, is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States. They have developed standards that a company must meet to be certified as a WBE company.  

Businesses that are certified as women- or minority-owned help corporations and government entities obtain tax incentives. Many of these organizations have quotas to meet for the amount of work they contract with certified minority-owned businesses.  

In KARNAK’s case, in addition to the tax incentives that the customer can receive, they also benefit from a large selection of environmentally friendly options through the company’s line of cool, reflective coatings
