In 1988, Joe Hale agreed to chair RCI’s (now IIBEC’s) Asbestos-Containing Roofing Material Committee, the first new committee to have been formed by the association since its inception. Another new joint committee was formed with the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) to explore mutually agreeable professional relationships between roof consultants and roofing contractors.

In November 1988, the association hired its first full-time paid employee, Paula Baker, as administrative assistant to the executive director (Bob Phillips) at the headquarters office in Raleigh.
