    Foreman Leadership Training is a program focusing on communication and leadership skills for field leaders. The roofing industry is filled with foremen and superintendents who are incredibly adept at expertly installing roof systems and who were promoted because of their reliability and expertise; however, these individuals often do not possess leadership and communication skills equal to the task of effectively leading crews. These programs introduce the concept that leadership and communication—and not only management—are tools needed to be a truly successful field manager. Several activities help participants practice tools to become effective crew leaders.

    Both courses use discussion, activities, personality profiles, and engaging examples to demonstrate to foremen (and other field leaders) that focusing on leadership will increase their crew members’ loyalty, efficiency, and overall productivity. 

    Course outcomes, Level 1

    Focus is on the dynamics of leadership, starting with self-awareness, and demonstrating how foremen can affect their crews toward positive and negative results.

    After participating in this course participants should be able to:

    • Discuss the differences between management and leadership.
    • Identify obstacles of their communication styles.
    • Discover and leverage their personality strengths and challenges.
    • Identify effective methods to interact with people, specifically, in difficult conversations.

    About the tournament

    This sporting clays event is designed for both experienced shooters and novices. Proceeds support VARP’s operations. Companies are encouraged to sponsor generously and use the event to entertain clients and reward their star employees.

    The tournament will consist of 5-person teams, 100 targets per person, and 16 stations plus a turkey shoot contest. Registration is limited to 17 teams. Because team registrations are limited, preference will be given to teams with at least one VARP member. Your team is not confirmed until your payment is received by VARP. If you do not receive a receipt, your team is not considered reserved.

    Boxed lunches are provided for teams and volunteers. Each team will get 1 golf cart and entry into the Turkey Shoot Contest for each shooter. Plaques will be given for the “Top Gun” and the top 3 teams.


    Tickets for the raffle will be sold online until the Friday before the tournament. This raffle is open to all VARP members. Proceeds go to support VARP's operations related to education, advocacy, and workforce development. Drawing will be held at the event.  You do not have to be present to win a grand prize. 

    Grand Raffle Prizes: There are two separate grand raffle prizes this year: 1) the winner's choice of a shotgun, pistol, or rifle sponsored by Hale Associates, and 2) a $700 gift card to Green Top to purchase your choice of gun or other outdoor sporting equipment.
