With GANA’s technical efforts stronger than ever, GANA is broadening its scope to include energy related issues and taking on the Glazing Industry Code Committee’s mission under its newly formed GANA: Advocacy Committee. As part of these efforts, Sowell will collaborate with a variety of consultants including Carney.
