Craig Brightup is Chief Executive Officer of The Brightup Group LLC. Previously, he was Vice President of Government Relations for the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), having opened the Chicago-based NRCA’s Capitol Hill office in 1990. His program covered all federal issues for the $30 billion commercial and residential roofing industry, with an agenda including labor relations, worker safety, health care, energy, environment, transportation, insurance, procurement, regulatory reform, taxes and immigration. During his tenure with NRCA, Brightup’s advocacy and political achievements led to being named to Fortune Small Business magazine’s Power 30 list of “influential insiders” in the nation’s capital, September 2000 issue.

Brightup also ran NRCA’s political program from 1990-2008 and continues as treasurer of its political action committee, ROOFPAC. For the 2008 election-cycle, the program generated roughly $500,000 hard-dollars for ROOFPAC and $300,000 for its soft-dollar account.
