FRSA: Many Opportunities to Learn

Networking, Educational Opportunities Abound

by Karen Knapstein

The 2022 Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Expo (www.floridaroof.com), will be held July 20-22 in conjunction with FRSA’s 100th Anniversary Convention at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida, July 19-22

The Expo features more than 230 exhibiting companies that will display the latest products and services, making the Expo the largest regional roofing show of its kind in the country. It’s a strategic event for professional roofing and sheet metal contractors. 

The State of Florida requires every licensed contractor operating in the state to earn 14 hours of continuing education (C.E.) credit during a two-year cycle. FRSA’s Convention will be offering 22 hours of C.E. credit, along with 11 hours of non-C.E. business courses. “It’s important that we offer a variety of educational topics, including business courses that are valuable to contractors but carry no credit,” stated FRSA Executive Director Lisa Pate. “With the addition of so many new roofing companies and licensed professionals, basic business training is essential to help ensure these companies remain solvent for years to come.”

In addition to educational offerings, the Convention includes two luncheons, a Welcome Reception and the Officer Installation Dinner – perfect opportunities for networking. 

Expo hours are Wednesday, July 20, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.; Thursday, July 21, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Friday, July 22, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The Expo is free to all contractors. 

To show their appreciation to the industry, FRSA is giving back by offering free seminars on Friday, July 22. In addition to free seminars, this package includes refreshment breaks, free lunch (sponsored by SOPREMA) and free admission to the Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Expo.

FRSA offers more than 20 classes with continuing education credits
