The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) have officially combined into one organization with the new name, Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA).

After a July 2019 vote by both bodies to unify, the two organizations have come together as of January 1, 2020.

FGIA Vision and Mission 

The AAMA and IGMA Boards of Directors met in early December to finalize the vision and mission of the unified organization. The vision focuses on improving home and building performance through better glass, window, door and skylight technologies and standards.

The FGIA strives to be a welcoming community, leading the glass, glazing and fenestration industry through research, consensus-based standards, product certification, advocacy, and education and professional development.
