GAF served as the Grand Patron of the 2012 NRCA/ROOFPAC Silent Auction at the International Roofing Expo February 22 – 24, 2012. Based on preliminary figures, the GAF-sponsored event raised over $30,000 for ROOFPAC. This funding will be instrumental in NRCA’s efforts to support pro-business members of Congress and other candidates for federal office in the upcoming 2012 elections. The biennial auction was conducted on Feb. 22 and 23 in the NRCA/ROOFPAC booth on the IRE trade show floor, with all proceeds benefiting ROOFPAC.
ROOFPAC is NRCA’s Political Action Committee (PAC), the only PAC dedicated solely to protecting and advancing the interests of the roofing industry in Washington, DC. Today, federal policy issues facing our industry are more challenging than ever, and thus the role of ROOFPAC in NRCA’s efforts to remain engaged in government policy in Washington, DC, are likewise more important than ever before. During the 2009-10 election cycle, ROOFPAC raised and contributed over $300,000 to pro-business candidates from both major political parties.
