Message From Leadership

By Amanda Fields, RCAW Executive Director.

Why membership is important.

As we skip out of a wonderful summertime, we walk to the fall and melt into the winter, I’m looking forward to the upcoming informational and engaging times we have planned for you ahead. 

Recently, I asked a member company, why are you members of RCAW. He responded with, “Why wouldn’t I be?” I said, “I know times have been tough for some of the roofing community and budgets are being slashed and people laid off, some seem to be cutting it back. I want to thank you for being present and showing up.” He said, “Hanging out with RCAW is officially work, but it is my fun work because I have a great time wherever you are, whether it is at the tradeshow, golf tournament or the salmon derby. I learn from every single roofer, manufacturer and distributor that I talk to, plus I always generate leads and work at your events. It is a win-win to be here. I get to make new clients, talk to old friends, and make new friends.” 

This is exactly why RCAW is here for each of you, to build your company and stay in business. Engaging with others through RCAW will give you access to great exposure to increase your credibility, expand your network, and set you apart from your competitors. Sharing your insights with others can help your business grow and solve difficulties more effectively. Participating in our Lunch and Learns, events and meetings are a great way to keep learning and growing as a person and business owner. Being a member of RCAW can only skyrocket your business to success.

Please join us at our end of the year event, our Annual Winter Gala and Auction on Saturday, December 2 at the Seattle Marriott in Bellevue starting at 5 p.m. This elegant event will be a night in the 1920’s Speakeasy/Prohibition era with amazing auction items, delicious food, beverages, casino tables, photobooth, DJ, music, games, dancing and more! 

On March 1, 2024, we have the sensational RCAW 2024 Pacific Northwest Regional Tradeshow being held at the Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. We have a remarkable educational line-up for you next year as well as RCAW’s very first Fastest Shingle Competition! This is one tradeshow you do not want to miss.
