2013 NERCA Conference

Slate Roofing Contractors Association at NERCA 2013 Boston

The SRCA had a booth at the March, 2013 NERCA convention in Boston. Shown above is board member John Mahan. Unfortunately, the postal service lost our banner when we shipped it up to Boston, so we had no banner to mark our booth! That could be why John looks a little forlorn.


New Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation

SRCA officially adopted new Bylaws and amended Articles of Incorporation, February 16, 2013. Gary Howes was elected Chairman of the Board and Chris Paulin was elected Vice-Chairman of the Board.

Joe Jenkins, SRCA Executive Director, relinquished his board of directors seat on February 20, 2013. Chris Short was appointed to fill the position. Mr. Jenkins, who continues in his position as Executive Director and who remains a member of the Executive Committee, voluntarily initiated the board restructuring in order to allow more members to directly participate on the board of directors. The intent is to enhance the growth and organizational integrity of the association. Read the letter.
