Welcome to National Women in Roofing (NWIR) an independent association for women in the roofing industry launched in February of 2016.
We embrace the following goals:
- Mentoring – Mentor and empower women in the roofing industry towards excellence in their chosen career
- Education – Create high-quality learning programs and experiences for men and women to build successful businesses and careers for both genders
- Networking – Provide opportunities to meet women in the roofing industry, creating strong, long-lasting networks
- Recruiting – Reach beyond traditional recruitment to enable and promote careers in the roofing industry to current and future workers
We will be launching membership, sponsorship and additional information on our plans for councils in June of 2016 at the WSRCA expo and FRSA convention. We foresee NWIR Councils across the country affiliated with roofing contractor associations, roof consultants, manufacturers, distributors and anywhere that women want to network and grow by starting a local or regional council. Councils should start forming by late summer and NWIR will make it easy with full support material for every council group.
So stay tuned! If you can attend events at the various trade shows, please do. It is a wonderful way to network and meet other amazing women who work in this great industry.
