The Tennessee Association of Roofing Contractors held their annual
Mid-Winter Meeting in January at the Four Points by Sheraton in Brentwood. This year’s meeting proved a success with a near sold out attendance record!
Educational speakers for the event covered a range of the different industry topics and trends, including what to expect in the roofing industry from our new president, pricing through satellite imaging and a review on National Women in Roofing. A highlight of the meeting was a innovative workshop on Leadership Communication presented by the Dale Carnegie Training Center of Tennessee.
Another highlight of the event was the presentation of National Women in Roofing by President of HJE, Heidi Ellsworth. Heidi brought a unique dynamic to TARC with her discussion of women in roofing. The trend of women in the work place continue to rise and roofing contractors have hired more women in recent years. Heidi raised questions about where women fit in the roofing industry and what they bring to the workplace that is usually male dominated.
The conference ended with a well attended reception in which participants had the opportunity to network with industry partners and colleagues. If you missed the meeting, please visit our website at tarcroof.org to download the presentations.
