Name Change

         RCI, Inc., a nonprofit association originally incorporated in 1983 as the Roof Consultants Institute, has officially become the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants.  The change, approved by its membership after extensive study, brand assessment, and industry-wide feedback, will align the association’s name and brand with its purpose and strategy heading into the future.

         RCI has grown from a small core of dedicated roof consultants to represent some 3,600 members, comprised of building enclosure consultants and other industry stakeholders specializing in roofing, waterproofing, and exterior wall specification and design.  The evolving focus of the institute’s members in embracing the entire building enclosure called for a name that would clearly define its purpose as: an international association; a professional institute representing building enclosure consultants, architects, engineers, and others such as ex-contractors who have gained the required education and experience; a knowledge hub and leading authority on all things building enclosure, including roofing, waterproofing, and exterior walls; an institute attractive to professionals of all ages, races, and gender; and an industry leader endeavoring to increase exposure, recognition, and usage of the institute’s resources by nonmember architects and engineers, government agencies, and more.
