By Clark Napier, TARC President.
This winter has been wet and cold, but it’s almost over. Spring is right around the corner, and with it sunshine, flowers, and happy roofing days! I want to thank everyone that came out to the 2019 Mid-Winter meeting. It was a very successful meeting with a lot of wonderful speakers, including keynote speaker Greg Hayne, President and Founder of Hayne Coaching Group, Inc. During the meeting, the NWIR TN Council made a presence and collected used shoes for Soles for Souls. Thank You for the donations to this great cause! We also saw several new faces representing both contractors and associate members and hope this event grows even bigger in 2020.
The International Roofing Expo will be February 11-13 in Nashville at the new Music City Center. We will have a booth set up and look forward to seeing everyone there. Visit our website at www.tarcroof.org for more information. Also, if you have not been able to renew your TARC membership or still owe dues, please make sure you get those in soon. On April 3-4, the roofing industry nationwide will come together in Washington, D.C., to meet with members of Congress on Capitol Hill during Roofing Day in D.C. We would like to be well represented this year. Anyone needing information please contact NRCA’s Washington, D.C., office at 800.338.5765.
Finally, our summer convention will be back at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Front in Pensacola, FL from June 5 - June 8. Please consider booking your room now and make plans to attend! Registration for the meeting is available now online. I hope to see everyone there and I wish everyone a busy and successful 2019!
