Post Time:Apr 19,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:348

The Glass Association of North America (GANA) in Topeka, Kan., will host its annual fall conference, September 19-22, at the Hilton Chicago in downtown Chicago. The event had been held in Kansas City the previous three years.


"The best technical minds in the glass and glazing industry come together in September at GANA's fall conference in Chicago," says Jay Phillips, president of GANA. "These working meetings define our industry standards and provide recommendations for the appropriate use of glass to the design and construction communities."


Several top issues of concern for the glass and glazing industry will be on the agenda for the conference. "Many critical issues will be discussed, including the appropriate glass for balconies, realistic daylighting recommendations, lifecycle analysis of glass products and defending the use of glass and glazing in commercial buildings," Phillips says. "By attending fall conference, you help shape our industry and ensure your interests are heard."


"In addition to the working meetings, fall conference will include discussions on building enclosure commissioning and what it means for the industry, ASHRAE 90.1 and ICC code activity updates and an ASTM Standards update," says Urmilla Sowell, technical director of GANA.


In other news, the association is requesting that volunteers join its Glazing Manual Subcommittee and Face Clearance Task Group.
