CGA hires association management firm
July 14, 2014 - The Canadian Glass Association has recently selected Centric Management and Consulting to serve as their new association management company. The Canadian Glass Association provides support to glass and related industries at the national level in matters of building codes, standards and legislation.

This creates the opportunity for synergy within the glazing industry, giving added value for membership," shares Jim Brady, president of the CGA. "This partnership will closely align the two associations which should negate the possibility of duplication of efforts, while giving the glazing industry as a whole, a stronger voice. It is our belief that this is an extremely positive partnership."
