BETHESDA, Md.—The EPDM Roofing Association plans to create an advisory board to help develop the right roofing systems for different climates throughout the world.
The effort is part of the association's celebration of its 10 th anniversary.
"We realize this is a critical time for the building community. People have questions about sustainability, cool roofing, recycling and the environmental impact of construction products," said John Geary, vice president of marketing at Firestone Building Products Co. L.L.C., and chairman of the ERA board of directors.
The advisory board of industry leaders will help set an agenda for the association.
The association is trying to stay in touch with the roofing industry as much as possible in this fast-paced environment, said Ellen Thorp, ERA associate executive director.
