The International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants came out in force at this, the second annual Roofing Day in DC held April 3-4 on Capitol Hill. Seventy-six individuals out of 378 who checked in identified themselves as IIBEC members—some 20% of the total. This was a slight improvement over last year, when 72 IIBEC (then RCI) members participated. IIBEC members were second only to those from the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), which organized the event. IIBEC and numerous other industry organizations co-sponsored the gathering with NRCA.

IIBEC members representing 56 companies (plus IIBEC itself) and hailing from 24 states took part in the two-day event, meeting with their representatives and senators and discussing critical issues facing our industry, such as regulatory reform (including procurement), workforce development, and immigration reform.
