Why Become A Member?

Organizations and individuals join RICOWI to provide support for unique roofing industry programs, to become part of a professional group with shared interests and ideas, to have the opportunity to participate in hail and hurricane investigation programs and to encourage and coordinate industry research projects.

At our meetings, information from each industry segment, from people that are involved, is presented and discussed. As a member, you will be given an opportunity to provide a report at the meeting on any industry related issue and get feedback from the participants. Shared data and test results helps the organizations understand the dynamics of more wind and weather resistant performance for their products. You can bring your knowledge or concern to another group of experts. They can peer review your ideas, suggest tests or procedures, or confirm that you are headed in the right direction. This interaction with other roofing professionals may help your organization to get the data it needs for future support in code or regulatory areas.

Sponsor Members have a voting representative on the RICOWI Board of Directors. The Board reviews and approves the business of the organization and the publications emanating from RICOWI.

All members receive reduced registration rates for RICOWI workshops and seminars. Members also have the benefit of RICOWI website links to increase awareness of their business.

You also have the opportunity to participate in two powerful programs: (1) the Wind Investigation Program (WIP) launched in 1996 and (2) the Hail Investigation Program (HIP) launched in 2004.
