Political Involvement Training Program - Meeting 1

  • 04/13/2022
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Hertless Brothers Roofing with Zoom Option


Registration is closed

This is the introductory meeting for an on-going program.  All members are welcome to participate either in-person or via Zoom.

Program Goals

1. Train VARP members how to advocate for the Virginia roofing industry with their state legislators.

2. Support members in advocating on behalf of the Virginia roofing industry through bill tracking, sharing VARP public policy positions and other relevant information.

Program Mission

Our ultimate goal is to have Virginia Delegates and Senators seek VARP member advice on legislative matters dealing with roofing, construction, and small business. If legislators rely on VARP members as subject-matter experts and our members become engaged in the public policy process, we’ll know we have succeeded.

Agenda for Meeting 1

1. Advocacy Training

  • Do’s & Don’ts with legislators
  • Be Seen/Show up
