National Women in Roofing (NWIR) will host a hospitality reception, sponsored by SRS Corporation, on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 at 5:30 pm at the International Roofing Expo. The hospitality event will be an opportunity for roofing industry professionals to network with peers. In keeping with NWIR’s mission, the event is focused on creating educational, mentoring and networking opportunities for those interested in membership.
Lindy Ryan, NRCA’s first female Chairman of the Board and Heidi J. Ellsworth, Chairperson of NWIR, will both share how women can find strong and lasting career paths in roofing and how women are making a difference in the overall industry.
Ryan will speak about her remarkable corporate and volunteer leadership tenure in the traditionally male-dominated roofing industry. Ryan’s positive message of focusing on the job, not the gender, offers a powerful lesson in developing talent across our rapidly diversifying industry. Ellsworth will share the vision for NWIR and its role as a national industry association, officially launching at the largest annual industry-related event.
