The Roofing Contractors Association of Texas (RCAT) is gearing up for its 48th Annual Texas Roofing Conference in Houston, Texas happening October 4-6, 2023. That’s why in a recent episode of Roofing Road Trips, host Megan Ellsworth sat down with Sarah Ramon, the executive director of RCAT, to share exclusive details about this year's event.
This year's conference offers an expansive range of networking and learning opportunities. Sarah emphasized that the conference will feature a two-day expo with 150 exhibitors and 22 educational seminars on diverse topics like marketing, legal issues and safety. "I'm excited too about our keynote, Dave Dolin. It's really steered toward this change in work dynamics, marketing dynamics, this world of inflation that we're dealing with following the pandemic," she said.
Beyond the regular sessions, attendees who are also looking to relax and have fun have a lot to look forward to. An awards luncheon will honor industry contributors and a golf tournament is also on the agenda. Additionally, a welcome reception on the rooftop of the Marriott Marquis promises a stunning view of Houston's skyline.
Sarah also talked about RCAT's voluntary licensing program for roofing contractors in Texas, aimed at enhancing consumer confidence by setting high standards for contractors. "It's a voluntary self-regulation program, and the purpose of it is to really boost consumers' that these contractors go above and beyond," she said.
Contractors interested in attending can find more information and register for the conference on RCAT’s website. "We've got a great group of exhibitors, so we definitely want them to get down there and get hands-on," Sarah noted. "I hope to see all of you there.”
