We started ARW in 2006 with the intent of providing roofing and waterproofing technical information for architects and engineers. The publication initially appeared as an e-zine that was produced four times a year. The publication is now produced six times a year with three e-zines and three print publications.

We started ARW in 2006 with the intent of providing roofing and waterproofing technical information for architects and engineers. The publication initially appeared as an e-zine that was produced four times a year. The publication is now produced six times a year with three e-zines and three print publications. We also provide monthly supplemental e-newsletters that contain industry information and other selected technical articles. Our subscription list continues to grow and we are able to provide all of the print, media and webinar services at no cost due to our expanding list of advertisers.

In the past two years we established the ARW University, which is a series of webinars on a wide range of both roofing and waterproofing technical topics. In 2010 we are providing twelve webinars (one a month), and they are all accredited through AIA for CEUs. Visit our Web site at  www.arwmag.com for the upcoming dates and topics and to sign up.

In addition to the webinars, ARW also conducts a daylong roofing and waterproofing seminar at our annual Best of Success Conference, which will be held in Denver, Colorado on Sept. 27-28, 2010.

We hope that our expansion is due to the success that we are having providing the technical information to you - at least we would like to think it is. However, instead of wondering what you are thinking, I thought it would be best to ask you directly. After all, this publication is provided solely for your education. So, at this time I would welcome any comments you may have at my e-mail address:  john_paragon@ameritech.

Please let me know if there are any specific topics that you would like us to cover or if there are any details that you need help designing. I will take your comments and use them to plan our upcoming editions.

Thank you for your support and I hope to hear from you soon.
