Industry volunteers gather for Fall Conference at the industry's largest trade show.

The Glass Association of North America (GANA), Topeka, KS, is bringing its Fall Conference to GlassBuild America in Atlanta for a first-time integration of its important committee work and presentations with the annual trade show where the industry gathers to meet and buy. 

The GANA Fall Conference runs concurrently with GlassBuild, Sept. 12-14 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The combination of the two events provides a larger audience and opportunities for new participation to address technical and advocacy priorities on behalf of members and the industry at large.  

"We encourage our peers to attend our joint Express Learning sessions and other Fall Conference opportunities," said Doug Schilling, GANA president. "The agenda includes ample time for our volunteer activities, plus time to visit exhibiting companies on the trade show floor to take advantage of all that GlassBuild America offers."

The boards of directors for GANA and the National Glass Association (NGA) will also jointly announce the outcome of the association combination talks during the GlassBuild America Opening Session on Tues., Sept. 12 at 8:00 am. The Opening Session, open to all attendees, features keynote speaker Cam Marston and includes a continental breakfast.
