Staying with the "wind" theme, June is the beginning of Hurricane season so it makes sense that the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association (FRSA) would choose to hold their annual convention this month. FRSA's convention and conference is one of the largest in the country. They have fantastic training, great networking time with roofing industry professionals and a massive exhibition floor.
The convention begins on Thursday, June 16, 2016 with sporting events (golf tournament, fishing tournament and a clay shoot tournament), and the Tile Roofing Institute Certification class.
