Continuing Involvement Requirement for Members
The CRA Board continually looks for ways to strengthen the value and benefits of being a CRA member. Consistent with our Mission Statement, the Board encourages active participation in promoting the ethics, education & image of the roofing industry in our State, through meetings and actions of the members. That is why we implemented the Continuing Involvement Requirement for Members (CIUs) at the beginning of 2017. We would like to see our entire membership get more involved and to participate in the many association activities provided throughout each year.
CRA recognizes that continuing education is significant to advancing and improving our profession. CRA CIUs will keep members up-to-date, let them master new knowledge and skills, plan for the future and responsibly meet the role CRA members play in the community and the roofing industry in Colorado. To remain in good standing, CRA Member will be required to submit 8 CIU’s for the period of January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022 for their company’s renewal in 2023 and each year thereafter. This requirement is for all current and new contractor members. Associate members are exempt from the CIU requirement but are encouraged to participate for their own personal benefit and that of the roofing profession. Records will be kept for all members.
Note: Contractor Members can also check your CIU Status at any time by going to the Contractor Member Directory Search. Your current CIU’s are listed right on your company profile page.
How to earn CIUs
Continuing Involvement credits can be earned in a number of ways and variety of learning formats by attending CRA approved seminars, workshops, trainings, events, etc. The units are calculated per person and then totaled for each company.

In those instances where any of the above qualifying events/seminars are held virtually, each person will need to log-in separately for tracking purposes and no partial credits will be given; participant must stay on virtual call the full time to receive CIU credit.
- CIU must be earned by your company employees.
