How We Serve Our Members

Safety Training and Certification
In cooperation with Cal OSHA, URCA is continually working to upgrade job standards and working conditions. URCA conducts workshops that address the major safety concerns of the industry. URCA provides member contractor employees with up to date safety training including CPR, Fall Protection, Forklift Certification, Respiratory, Confined Space, and more.

Employee Eligibility Verification Program
The EEV Certification Program trains URCA contractors to understand and meet their obligations to verify new employee's eligibility to work in the US, and certifies that the contractor has met the requirements to participate in the Federal E-Verify program.

Legislative Activities
URCA maintains a vigilant stance on California and Federal issues that directly affect property owners and managers, and the performance of its member contractors as it pertains to roofing, waterproofing, and contracting.

Green technology and environmental issues are here to stay and URCA member contractors are in constant training with current technologies as well as future means of providing state-of-the-art service in areas such as photo voltaic and energy saving cool roof systems.

Community Activities
Members of URCA are a giving group. URCA provides resources to needy
organizations including Central Los Angeles Rebuilding Together Project,
Bob Hope USO LAX, Bob Hope Burbank and Ontario airports, and a financial
contribution to the Wounded Warriors Foundation.

Membership Meetings
URCA continues to keep its contractor members informed of industry issues with membership meetings such as its annual General Membership Meetings. Past meetings have included the announcement and implementation of Workers’ Comp group insurance, and a meeting with guests from the Los Angeles Mayor’s Office and the L.A. Dept. of Water and Power regarding photo voltaic energy demands.

The Don Banks Memorial Scholarship
Each year URCA awards a number of scholarships for undergraduate or
graduate studies at an accredited college or university as well as those
planning to continue their education at a technical or vocational
school. Those scholarships can total $28,000 and all employees and
members of their immediate families may apply. Click here for more information and to download an application form.
