Join us! NWIR is hosting the second annual National Women in Roofing Day, Saturday, February 9th in Nashville, Tennessee. 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.

Be among professional, like-minded, good-spirited women from all facets of the roofing industry to gain insight and inspiration. Learn how to maximize your career in this exciting industry through  discussions with colleagues and by leveraging the opportunities to grow professional networks and meet new peers throughout the day. The first 200 registrants will receive a wonderful swag bag of gifts from NWIR and our sponsors.

This program is intended to foster conversation and learning. You will be able to select each activity in which you choose to participate and we hope you come prepared to fully engage and get the most out of this event.  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. Background: Details on the 2018 NWIR Day were also covered by Lisa Lambrix and Tara Gerhardt co-chairs of NWIR Day in a webinar on October 26, 2017.

Encourage your colleagues to attend by sending forwarding this flyer (coming soon).

NWIR Member Pricing for NWIR Day

To determine which registrants receive member pricing, the system uses the exact first name, last name, member number and email address that is on the NWIR member list. If the registrant enters her first and last name but uses her personal email, the system will not provide member pricing if the member list has her work email (or vice versa). Same thing if the registrant enters Cindy but the member list 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.

Registration Instructions
