RCMA names two new board of directors.

The Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA), the international trade association representing manufacturers of cold-applied coatings and cements used for roofing and waterproofing and suppliers of industry products, recently held its Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

In addition to featuring association activity updates and a panel discussion of industry experts, this meeting was an opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions of two RCMA members with industry awards and to announce two new appointees to the RCMA Board of Directors.

The RCMA James "Tim" Nelligan Industry Statesman Award was awarded to Steve Heinje. Heinje, technical service manager for Quest Construction Products, is an active and dedicated RCMA member; he serves as the association's vice president, is a member of the RCMA Board of Directors, and co-chairs both the Sustainability Task Force and the Codes and Standards Task Force.

The James "Tim" Nelligan Industry Statesman Award is not awarded every year, but rather is an award that is presented when deemed appropriate to acknowledge a member's special efforts on behalf of the RCMA in advancing the mission of the roof coatings industry. The late James Tim Nelligan, the award's namesake, was active in the coatings industry and played an integral part in the creation of the RCMA back in 1982. He started his career in the roofing industry at Owens Corning, served as president of Henry Company, and would go on to start his own reflective roof coatings business, United Cool Roof Systems. The RCMA's Martin A. Davis Award, first presented in 1985, is the highest honor bestowed by RCMA. Named for one of RCMA's founding members, this award recognizes outstanding service and significant contributions to the roof coatings industry. At its Annual Meeting, RCMA awarded the 2015 Martin A. Davis Award to Jeff Blank. Blank, vice president of R&D and Purchasing at SR Products, served as president of the RCMA from 2012-2013. He has been an active member in RCMA, serving on the Board of Directors for 14 years, and contributes his expertise to various committees and task forces.

During the meeting, the RCMA members approved the proposed Board of Directors slate. John Stubblefield, Polyglass USA, was selected to fill a regular member seat, and Steve Hollman, Univar USA, Inc., will fill an associate member seat on RCMA's Board of Directors. The terms for Stubblefield and Hollman begin in 2015 and expire in 2018. The RCMA thanked the two outgoing members of the Board of Directors, Debra Light and Jon Shaffer, for their time and dedication during their terms as board members.
