National Roofing Legal Resource Center

Annual Luncheon Program

Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018
11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
New Orleans

As an old saying goes, in this world nothing is said to be certain except death and taxes. Although the interpretation of the new corporate tax policy is somewhat cumbersome, it is clear this new plan significantly will change the business landscape for U.S. roofing companies of all sizes.

Join us for the National Roofing Legal Resource Center's (NRLRC's) Annual Luncheon Program in New Orleans immediately following the 2018 International Roofing Expo® (IRE) keynote address Tuesday Feb. 6 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Our luncheon speaker will provide you with insight into the effect and nuances of the tax policies aimed at strengthening small businesses, including understanding the challenges for pass-through entities such as S Corporations and the intricacies related to business' tax planning strategies.

Also during the luncheon, we will be joined by two widely respected technical experts, including Rene Dupuis, principal at Structural Research Inc., Madison, Wis., who will share his reflections and perspectives from 40 years in commercial roofing, and Mark Graham, NRCA's vice president of technical services, Rosemont, Ill., who will provide you with the latest updates regarding moisture-related problems with low-slope membrane roof systems applied to lightweight structural concrete roof decks.

Open to all roofing contractors attending the show, we encourage you to reserve your seat early. Luncheon tickets are $75 per person for NRCA contractor members and $95 per person for non-NRCA contractor members and may be purchased online by visiting For more information about NRLRC's luncheon program, please contact Alison LaValley or Anne Schroeder on the NRLRC staff at (847) 299-9002 or
