    We are pleased to welcome back one of our most-requested speakers – NRCA’s Mark Graham. Mark not only talks about how the various codes have changed, but why. More than that, he explains how those changes affect real-world installations.
     
    Mark will be updating us on many of the recent code and technical changes affecting the industry, but he is also willing to address any questions that you might have. If you have a question, please be sure to let us know on your registration form.
    Graham joined NRCA in 1993 and is responsible for the association’s Technical Services Section which responds to inquiries for technical information and assistance. He serves as the association’s technical liaison with outside organizations and develops and maintains the association’s technical documents, including The NRCA Roofing and Waterproofing Manual.

     
    Graham is the staff liaison to NRCA’s Technical Operations Committee and Manual Update Committee. He also is contributing editor for Professional Roofing magazine. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Engineering from the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
     
    We encourage you to come to this informative meeting!
