The Board of Directors is made up of women leaders from all sectors of the roofing industry who govern the association and are committed to the advancement of the organization. The slate of the new Directors on the Board is approved by the members at NWIR Day, which is generally in February of each year.

The Executive Committee are the officers of the association who provide a vision for the association for the upcoming 1-3 years, serve as liaisons for 2-3 committees to provide guidance and strategic oversight, and address significant issues that affect the association.  

The committees of the association provide most of the major programs and initiatives and coordinate the national and industry events in which NWiR participates. The leadership of the committees are generally members of the Board of Directors.

Association Management

NWIR is professionally managed by an association management firm, Civica Management. Ellen Thorp serves as the independent Executive Director of the organization.  As a volunteer-based association, many of the responsibilities are performed by the Executive Committee, Board of Directors, and committee members.  Every effort is always made to fill association needs by member volunteers before looking outside the association.

NWIR headquarters are housed in the Civica office in the Denver, Colorado metro area. Association staff may be contacted using the Contact Us page on this website – inquiries are monitored daily.
