NWIR is so fortunate to be supported by other not-for-profit associations, non-governmental organizations, and business coalitions. We seek these colleagues both in and outside the roofing industry, in adjacent industries, those that represent women in male-dominated fields and those that we have issues in common with.  All the acronyms may look like alphabet soup, but these organizations offer free resources for education, industry information, and/or opportunities for women in male-dominated fields.

The roofing-related media outlets that cover NWIR events and activities are also an excellent news resource for the entire roofing industry.


The mission of IIBEC is to advance the profession of building enclosure (roofing, waterproofing and exterior wall) consultants.


Be sure to check out the NRCA University offerings, located under the Education tab on the website.


NAWIC has an extensive listing of educational programs in the architecture, engineering, and construction fields for youth and adults.


CWiR is a committee of the Chicago Roofing Contractors Association.

We add a few organizations to this list every year, so please feel free to reach out through our contact page if we have resources to offer each other’s members.
