This presentation will provide an update on the Research projects that RCABC is presently engaged in as well as a review of the recent changes to the guarantee standards for roofing & sheet metal installed in the RGC Guarantee Program.
Jim Watson has been in the commercial roofing industry for 40 years. Mr. Watson is a trade qualified Journeyman who spent 16 years as Co-owner and President of a Roofing Contractors Association of British Columbia (RCABC) member commercial contracting firm on Vancouver Island.
Jim has been involved with RCABC for over 25 years. During that time he served 11 years on the Association’s Board of Directors which included terms as both Ethics Chairman and President in 1988 – 89. Mr. Watson has been in his current position, as the RCABC Technical Manager, since March 1995.
Mr. Watson also represented British Columbia for five years on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Roofing Contractors Association (CRCA), serving three years on that National Associations executive. In addition, Jim has been a member of the CRCA National Technical Committee since 1995.
In 1989, Jim was among the first eight RCABC contractor members to be awarded the Professional Roofing Contractors designation (PRC). The PRC is the association’s most prestigious award that presented to RCABC professional members for their service and leadership in the British Columbia roofing industry.
Jim is also a member of RCI Inc. and holds the Registered Roof Observer (RRO) status with the Roofing Consultants Institute and he is one of a growing number of Canadian roofing professionals to do so.
At RCABC today, Jim makes good use of both his paid and volunteer roofing industry experience by managing the associations guarantee program as well as providing technical services and advice to people requiring assistance with British Columbia roofing industry issues.
