GAF Wins Prestigious ARCA Associate Member of the Year Award

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, was recently presented with the Arizona Roofing Contractors Association (ARCA) Associate Member of the Year Award. The award is open to roofing manufacturers, distributors, and supplier firms, and is given annually to recognize one ARCA associate member from throughout the state for outstanding contributions to the roofing industry. 

Roofing companies make the nominations based on exceptional achievements in the categories of: long-term commitment to ARCA and its members, dedicated support to ARCA roofing contractors’ training through sponsorship, exceptional associate employee volunteer contributions, exceptional field technical support, and outstanding service to the roofing industry in Arizona. Current ARCA roofing contractors are eligible to vote, determining each year’s winner. 

“Winning the ARCA Associate Member of the Year Award is an outstanding accomplishment and a great honor,” stated Mike Hurley, area vice president at GAF. “We are certainly proud to be recognized with this award and appreciative that ARCA found us to be ‘exceptional.’”
