NRCA Is Accepting Applications for Its Future Executives Institute

The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) now is accepting applications for its Future Executives Institute (FEI), a comprehensive, powerful three-year program focused on leading and managing a successful roofing business. FEI’s first session is slated to be held Sept. 28 — Oct. 1. Classes will take place at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management campus in Chicago.

FEI, which is taught by Kellogg professors, industry leaders and field experts, offers participants an in-depth look at management theory and practice. Those who attend also benefit from unique industry networking opportunities while developing their leadership and communication skills.

“It is rare to have access to such accomplished and insightful minds in such a focused setting,” says 2013 FEI graduate, Marc Farrell, manager at A.W. Farrell & Son Inc., Salisbury, N.C. “NRCA has done an excellent job providing us with the opportunity to make improvements to ourselves, our companies and our industry.”

FEI provides basic business information, current industry topics, leadership and personal development opportunities, and team building exercises. Class size is limited to 30 roofing professionals to allow for in-depth conversations and class relationships during the three-year program.

The deadline for early-bird applications is June 1, 2014. Those who apply by this time will receive notice if they are accepted by June 16. The regular application deadline is Aug. 1.

Atlas Roofing to Host Contractor Meetings across the U.S.

Following the positive reception to last year’s Innovations Roadtrip events, Atlas Roofing will again be offering a series of informative contractor meetings in several cities across the U.S.

This year’s events, referred to as “The House Always Wins”, begin in March and will carry through to October, with eight cities slated in between. Atlas representatives and executives will speak at each one to detail the many ways Atlas designs with the contractor in mind. Attendees will get in-depth and hands-on introductions to new Atlas products, technology tools and incentive promotions.

Presentations are scheduled during the Atlas “House Always Wins” events for the latest shingle and underlayment technology, including the power of Pristine Shingles featuring Scotchgard Protector. There will also be demonstrations on the free iPad ProAPP for contractors. Using Cloud-based technology, this app allows contractors to create, calculate, and manage projects directly from an iPad. Demonstrations will also be given on the benefits of using Eagleview Aerial Roof Measurement Reports, which are included on the ProAPP, to enhance the estimating process.

Contractors will learn how to earn unlimited cash rewards through the new “4 Of A Kind” Contractor Rebate Program.

Every registered attendee at each event will have a chance to win an iPad, Yeti Cooler and other great prizes. A free catered buffet lunch will be served and each attendee will receive Atlas product samples, literature and a goodie bag.

Contractors must RSVP to attend. Continue to watch this website for updates on times and locations.
