It is necessary for an association to have a good quality governing body which comprises those who are recognised both inside and outside the industry as leaders.  A governing body should be comprised of member representatives.  

The LRWA Board of Directors (governing body) comprises of the following:

  • Four director positions representing manufacturer members
  • Two director positions representing contractor members
  • One director position representing associate members

"It is vitally important for Sika to have a recognised presence on Industry Trade Organisations, ensuring that we are at the decision making table when changes are made to improve both quality and safety in the industry. Richard has served on LRWA (amongst a number of other organisations) with distinction and Sika are right at the very forefront of the industry defining activities taking place. Being voted onto the Board of Directors is very well deserved recognition for all Richard’s achievements in that field and I look forward to seeing the further impact he can have in the coming years. A warm congratulations from all of us in Roofing." Alex Coward, Head of Technical - Roofing
