CRCA Membership Meeting Description

CRCA Membership Meetings are held four times per year and feature time for relationship building / networking, lunch, plus industry leading speakers.  Of the four membership meetings, one is the 'CRCA Scholarship Dinner'. 

CRCA Membership Meeting Luncheon topics are usually assigned to Committees to recruit and provide a speaker.  Topics include:

Legal – CRCA has had several attorneys speak at the Membership Luncheons.  Marjorie Newman, Esq., discussed lien rights of contractors in relation to bankers.  Risk management presentations focusing on contracts have been well recieved. Leading Construction Attorney Stanley Sklar, Esq. has also presented to the group.

Roofing & Energy Codes – CRCA has had the CIty of Chicago and State of Illinois speak to the association about energy codes as they are adpated and used by the construction industry.

Insulation Availability Issues – CRCA asked the Insulation Industry to present what the current situation is, why and how it occurred, plus an outlook to the future. CRCA announced its position paper on this important topic at this Membership Meeting.

Legislation – CRCA Members heard about HB 805, a bill that could affect workers compensation issues for all employers at the membership meeting. Jim Clune, Esq., Garafolo, Schreiber, Hart & Storm enlightened the group what the bill is, and how it could affect the contracting industry in Illinois.

Safety - CRCA Members receive safety updates from CRCA Safety Consultant Safety Check and other industry professionals on hot topics affecting the roofing and waterproofing industry.

Interesting & Fun – CRCA Members have heard from NASA Astronauts, a Mentalist, Chicago Bears personalities, a former NFL Umpire, NBC5 President Larry Wert, Entreprenuer Cherryl Thomas and more.

CRCA Membership Meeting speakers have come to us from our own CRCA Membership, NRCA, MRCA, General Contractor and Architectural Associations, plus many other groups. CRCA Membership Meetings have been an industry tradition and learning ground for CRCA Members since the inception of the Association in the 1870’s.
