Industry. CRCA Associate members are individuals, partnerships,
or corporations that furnish materials, supplies, services
or other allied products to the roofing industry. Roofing
contractors cannot be Associate members.

who has an Associate Member as part of the CRCA Board
of Directors, elected solely by the Associate Membership.
This person does have a vote on the CRCA Board of Directors

of the Membership Committee and Board of Directors for
such honor. The Honorary Membership requires no dues
payment, although the member pays for participation
in some CRCA Events.
