The National Roofing Contractors Association is one of the US construction industry's trade associations and a voice in the roofing industry for information, education, technology and advocacy. Founded in 1886, NRCA is a nonprofit association that represents all segments of the roofing industry, including contractors; manufacturers; distributors; architects; consultants; engineers; building owners; and city, state and government agencies.

The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress was established in 1996 to improve the roofing industry by bringing together all industry segments to help fund research and educational programs; provide industry responses to major economic and technological issues; and enhance the long-term viability and attractiveness of the industry to roofing workers.

The National Roofing Legal Resource Center (NRLRC) is open to roofing, roof deck and waterproofing contractors and acts as a legal advocate for roofing contractors throughout the U.S. Issues such as contract language, employee relations, regulatory compliance, payment provisions, insurance coverage, and codes and standard can threaten a contractor's profitability and even its existence. NRLRC provides its members with assistance in addressing issues such as these.
