The former Protective Glazing Council (PGC) announced a name change at its annual Symposium last week in Arlington, VA.

The organization is now Protective  Glazing Council International, a change approved by the membership as part of the  Symposium. “The PGC International Board of Directors began considering the name change as a part  of the intense strategic assessment and planning process this year,” explained Sara  Neiswanger, Account Executive for the association. “One of the new goals for the  organization is to expand its reach into a more global arena.With the increasing need for  the technologies and systems developed by the members of PGC International, we will  focus on ways to bring them to the many countries that are looking for this exact type of  resource.”

In addition to the name change, PGC International held its Board of Director elections,  with Michael Burriss of Cytec Industries Inc., Raj Goyal of Graham Architectural  Products, Carl Kernander of Madico Inc., and Jim Stewart of Tremco Inc. being elected  to the Board. They replaced outgoing Directors Valerie Block of DuPont and Julie  Schimmelpenningh of Solutia Inc., as well as two Board vacancies.

Elected as President of PGC International was Ron McCann of Viracon, while former  President Scott Haddock of Glasslock, Inc., was elected Vice President of the  organization. Darrell Smith of the International Window Film Association was re-elected  as Treasurer, and Goyal was elected as Secretary.

“PGC International is an excellent organization that has tremendous growth potential,”  said McCann. “I am very grateful for being elected President of the association, and I see  a lot of excitement from our members. Together, we will build on that excitement and  make a stronger and more influential organization.”
