b'Presidents MessageNEW YEARRENEWED HOPEA t the stroke of midnight on December 31, we were finally able Fred Horner, MRCA Presidentto say farewell to 2020 and welcome 2021 with open arms!Hopefully 2021 will bring us closer to the old normal, but whatever comes our way, I have a feeling that this will be a great year! Thank you to everyone who participated in the virtual auction.With your help, the event was a great success and we were able to raise over $25,000! As we move into 2021, I believe we all need to concentrate on the new programs we are developing and implementing.These programs include the Safety Certification Program and our virtual CERTA Applicator Training Program.Looking into the future, the MRCA Board and Committee Members are anxious to continue planning for the November 9-11, 2021 Conference and Expo and are ever hopeful that they will all be able meet in-person in Milwaukee soon for a site visit.From myself and everyone at the MRCA, we wish you a happy new year!Stay strong, safe and healthy!Fred HornerMRCA PresidentAdvanced Industrial Roofing, Inc.fred_horner@airoofing.com 4 www.mrca.orgMidwest Roofer'
