Graeme Miller has been elected as the President of the International Federation of Roofing Trades (IFD).
Elected unanimously by the IFD board, Graeme Millar will now take over the three-year term presidency from Walter Bisig. He is only the third British presidency holder in the organisation’s history.
Graeme Millar has previously served as the IFD board member responsible for technical – heading up five separate commissions of metal roofing, pitched roofing, flat roofing, facades and health, safety and wellbeing.
Taking over the presidency at the 67th World Roofing Congress in Edinburgh, hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) last week, Graeme commented:
“I’m very pleased and honoured to become the IFD President and look forward to helping make the world a better place for roofers.
“I want to increase networking with the UK to help improve roofing and, through the NFRC, promote best practice as well as the percentage of people who possess a qualification.
James Talman, CEO of the NFRC said, “The NFRC is proud and delighted that Graeme Millar has been appointed President of the IFD, particularly at this time when the world is faced with the major problem of climate change. As a group of nations, we all need to consider the contribution our roofing industry can provide to tackling the impact of this very serious challenge to our future.”
