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.”
