Attire for NWIR Day is whatever you are comfortable wearing. If you feel your best in yoga pants, wear them. If you feel your best in a dress and pearls, then wear that. Most people dress casually, but you should do you!
Registration for this event is through the IRE registration.Please see the section at the bottom of the page for some notes on registration and the appropriate links to use to register.
Sometimes it can be challenging to help an employer understand the value of professional development, so NWIR members have prepared a Justification Letter to help you.

Before you register…
To determine if you will receive $50 member pricing, the system uses the exact first name, last name, member number and email address that is on the NWIR member list. If you enter your first and last name but use a personal email, the system will not provide member pricing if the member list has your work email (or vice versa). Same thing if the you enter as your name Cindy, but you are listed has Cynthia. It must be an exact match in all 4 fields.
NWIR members were sent an email on September 26, 2018 with their member number and you can also see your member number on the new member database at https://nwir.memberclicks.net/member-landing-page
If you are using the proper information as outlined above, and you still aren’t getting the member pricing, please contact Elizabeth Miller in the NWIR office if you have joined or renewed your membership in the past month; it could be that our upload that includes your member renewal hasn’t gone through yet.
FULL REGISTRATION ATTENDEES:
If you are an attendee, click https://www.theroofingexpo.com/en/register.html if you are attending NWIR Day and the IRE education sessions or special events; use discount code XTK400.
EXHIBITORS / EXHIBITING COMPANIES
If your company is an exhibitor and you will be working in the booth, provide your NWIR member number to your company’s point of contact and ask them to register you. Alternately, get your exhibitor code from your company’s point of contact and update your registration to include NWIR Day. If one person at your company is registering a large batch of employees at the same time, please contact Elizabeth Miller in the NWIR office and she can send you a list of all NWIR members (and their member number) who have indicated your company name as their organization.
If your company is an exhibitor and you are NOT working the booth, the best case scenario is for your company to add you as booth personnel and then follow the process above. If this isn’t possible, then please contact Elizabeth Miller in the NWIR office for further instructions.
