Members of the Rooflight Association met together for the first time since the rebrand, at Swindon’s National Self Build and Renovation Centre last month. The Rooflight Association was formerly known as NARM: the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers.
Reflecting the association’s decision to open up its membership to allow contractors, installers, specifiers, consultants, distributors and other businesses or individuals involved in the rooflight industry to join, the meeting was busy and had a detailed agenda, outlining the association’s goals for the coming years. Sarah Spink, CEO of the Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association, was a key speaker at the event.
“Our mission has always been to support best practice and to ensure growth and sustainability in our industry,” said Ian Weakford, the Rooflight Association’s chair. “Broadening our membership base will enable us to address these goals more effectively, with a unified voice that represents and supports the whole sector.
“In addition to our ongoing close involvement with influential industry working groups, legislators and standards bodies, we are now also developing new initiatives to engage with and support our new membership groups.”
Sarah, the meeting’s keynote speaker, added: “We support the Rooflight Association and share a common mission to support excellence and professionalism in the roofing sector. It was a pleasure to share my experiences as a trade association CEO and to meet up with like minded colleagues and friends.”
The Rooflight Association publishes freely available technical guidance that aims to cover all aspects of rooflight design, specification and installation. Those documents can be downloaded from the Association’s website: rooflightassociation.org. For information about joining the Rooflight Association, visit this link.
