National Roofing Partners (NRP), the leading network of commercial roofing contractors in North America, is proud to share information concerning National Women in Roofing’s (NWIR) Mentoring and Networking Reception featuring Kaney O’Neill. This inspirational speaker will share real-life experiences as a women-owned and disabled veteran-owned roofing company with over 300 roofing professionals.

NRP has played an important role in recruiting the 2017 NWIR Mentoring Speaker, Kaney O’Neill. With a special video, focused on not only running a women-owned business, but also dealing with the challenges of being a disabled veteran, O’Neill will deliver an incredibly inspirational story. NWIR is planning on over 300 people at the upcoming reception being held February 28, 2017 at 5 pm in the Mandalay Bay Islander I. Mallory Payne, National Account Manager for NRP and Chair of the NWIR Mentoring, and her committee, have worked with Kaney O’Neill and Jill Bloom from Roofing Contractor Magazine, to bring Kaney’s story to the mentoring event.

“Kaney is extremely inspirational and her outlook as a business women is exactly what we are trying to share through NWIR events,” stated Payne. “NRP has built a strong relationship with Kaney and her roofing company, it was a natural fit to ask her to speak at the NWIR annual event. The idea of using video worked for everyone and we were thrilled to partner with Roofing Contractor Magazine, also a NWIR Founding Sponsor, on the video which will be shown during the reception.”

“NRP believes in the strength of men and women working together for success,” stated Dale Tyler, president of NRP. “Heidi J. Ellsworth, Chair of NWIR and Mallory Payne are both integral to NRP. Early on, we made the commitment of being a NWIR Founding Sponsor. We know the importance of women-owned businesses and women in leadership both in the office and on the rooftop. It is the future of this industry.”
