Events to Attend
Sunday, January 30 | 9:30am – 7:00pm
National Women in Roofing Day
2:30pm – 3:30pm Breakout Session - A Few Good Guys Become Allies: How Women Can Identify Male Allies and Partner to Impact Change
Our Director of Technical Services, Todd Nathan, will be speaking during events with National Women in Roofing Day along with several other speakers in a breakout session. Inclusion strategies often overlook the idea to include and work with the majority group. However, helping today’s majority to buy-in is essential since they still hold the reins in many cases. Whether we like it or not, men matter when it comes to the advancement of women and under-represented groups. So, let’s talk and work together in bringing this to life!
JM Live Demo: 10:45am – 11:45am
JM Technical Representative, Anna Swiontoniowski, will be demonstrating using mock ups of various common roof penetrations, the presentation will go over all the components of a proper flashing system, pros and cons of each detail, required tools and equipment, and installation methods. The live demo will show:
- Prefabricated pipe boot detail
- Field-fabricated pipe wrap detail

Monday, January 31 | 4:00pm – 7:00pm

Lessons…An insider’s look at 40 years of learning, falling, failing, and succeeding.
All of us, no matter our age, have learned from the lessons of living life. Reid Ribble will share a life’s worth of lessons learned from his father, his roofing business, his time in Congress, and leading the roofing industry as the CEO of the NRCA.
