With voices from the code, architect, and glazing contractor communities, this panel will address how initiatives like the New Green Deal in New York City can impact the glass industry, and what glass companies can do to engage in the conversation proactively.

A New Type of Glazier: From Glass Company to Building Enclosure Expert
with David Ben-Israel
For contract glaziers, the last few years have brought multiple changes and challenges. Façade systems are more integrated; material and labor costs are increasing; and, design responsibility is shifting. This session will address what can glass contractors do to meet these challenges and provide a better solution for their clients, while remaining competitive.

Labor Power Hour: Engage Your Front Line to Increase Your Bottom Line
with Mack and Ria Story
Employees are often hired for what they know and fired for who they are. In this session, attendees will learn strategies to increase the productivity of the employees they have, create a pipeline of leaders, and develop a company culture that attracts and keeps new labor. The result: increased profit, improved morale, and reduced turnover.

Ask the Expert Presentations & Interactive Breakout Sessions
Led by industry experts in their respective fields, these interactive presentations will address some of the leading business concerns of today's contract glaziers: recruitment and retention, cash flow and financing, and the impact of technical codes on your business. Attendees will participate in Q&A and coaching sessions with the experts of their choice.
