WinR at the IoR AGM
When the Women in Roofing Management Project was launched in September 2014, there were just over twenty female members of the Institute of Roofing.
The project supported both male and female learners through the Roofing Management and Technician Course which can lead to membership of the IoR following sucessful completion.
It is worthy of note that the last two winners of the IoR Student of the Year have been female, and are now members of WinR and IoR.
Livia Williams is one of the founder member of Women in Roofing, and is Fellow of the IoR and now also Vice Chair of the Institute of Roofing. She is also Honarary Treasurer. It is a tribute to Livia's efforts with IoR recruitment that the female membership of the IoR is now greatly increased and the membership of the Board of Directors of the IoR now includes a total of five women from a board of twelve members.
Denise Cherry (another WinR founder member) was co-opted onto the Board of the IoR earlier this year and now chairs the Education and Training Committee, responsible for the complete training offering of the Institute of Roofing following her formal appointment to the Board at the AGM on Thursday 20th October 2016.
Other WinR members of the IoR board include Lynn Street of SIG (Chair of WinR), Kay Rose of Axter (Winner of the IoR Student of the Year 2015) and Maureen Johnson of A1mazing Roofing (known as the Roofing Fairy Godmother)
