If you don’t currently follow us on social media, we encourage you to like us and share our posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. We think Leverage Digital is doing a great job with the graphic design, content and frequency of our posts, but more people need to see the posts to see our programs, projects and activities. We want to increase our followers! Please share our posts with your marketing/social media teams and ask them to follow us and share our posts with your customers.

Our first month in the fiscal year has been a busy one, and we know the pace will continue. We need more members to become involved—we need competition team mentors and judges, as well as people to serve on our Gold Circle Awards Committee; the Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards Task Force and our Project Review Committee. Please let either one of us or Bennett Judson know if you are willing to serve on one of these committees or task forces. Remember, staying actively involved and engaged strengthens the Roofing Alliance and helps shape the future of our industry!
