NWiR to Hold Sixth Annual Conference in Dallas

Dallas – National Women in Roofing (NWiR) announced that the sixth annual NWiR Day will take place in Dallas on March 5. The one-day conference will use the theme of “Follow Your Path” and is a chance for multidisciplinary women professionals in the roofing industry to get together to learn about the latest business strategies and tactics and share their secrets to success.

The mission of NWiR is to empower women in the roofing industry. The content of NWiR Day will be focused on the needs of women; everyone is invited to attend, and to listen and learn from the lived experience of women in the roofing industry.

Michelle Boykin, chair of the board of directors and executive committee, says, “We are focused on a purposeful movement highlighting the success of NWiR’s talented members. These women (and our allied male members) are working daily to transform the roofing industry to be more inclusive and balanced. We are honored to have a slate of such gifted speakers who represent the very best of our industry.”

Sessions will cover topics including business development, communications, career development, mentoring, recruitment, roofing technology advancements, and networking. This program is intended to foster conversation and learning, and will include a light breakfast, lunch, snacks, and the evening activity. The first 400 attendees will also receive a swag bag of gifts from NWiR sponsors.

A book discussion, wellness session, brunch, and a roof walk will take place on March 6. NWiR Day is held in conjunction with the International Roofing Expo, sponsored by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA).
