Brian Chalsma, president, and Kevin Miller, production supervisor, were proud to represent The Roofing Company at the 10th Annual Slate Roofing Contractors Association Conference, held September 24-27 at the association headquarters near Grove City, PA. Members came from all over North America and as far as Spain and Brazil to attend the four-day event.
The SRCA conference kicked off on Thursday with a day-long slate roof installation training workshop. One of the most important roles of the SRCA is to develop slate installation guidelines and educate members on slate roof installation and other slate-related topics. Educating more roofers on proper installation techniques is essential to the future of slate roofing in the United States.
Friday continued a full day of training with several presentations, followed by a member meeting, social reception, dinner and evening entertainment by the Junction PA Band. Seven more presentations were held on Saturday, after which attendees enjoyed a catered dinner, live music and a live auction. The event wrapped up on Sunday morning with presentations and farewells.
An important milestone was reached this year: representatives from both State Farm Insurance and Erie Insurance attended the event. Now the lines of communication have been established between professional slate roofing contractors and two of the top homeowner insurance providers.
