Leonard Pianalto, P.Eng, the technical committee chairperson for the conference says the CGA technical sessions will provide valuable information for professionals involved in all aspects of the glazing industry. “The CGA represents glazing contractors across the country who are specialists in their field. We tapped into this resource to develop the seminar topics for this conference and we have successfully recruited the combined talents and thinking of some of the top experts in the industry,” he says
Richard Verdon, president of the CGA says the Glass Connections Conference is a national program that will be rolled out to other regions in the coming year. “The CGA has a mandate to represent glass professionals in Canada no matter where they are located. We made a promise to provide a service to association members that allow glaziers to benefit from the resources and programs we now offer and we are taking this directly to our members by providing a valuable educational venue,” he says, adding that the conference dates will be announced in other provinces after the inaugural event in British Columbia. “This is the ultimate goal of CGA. To reach out and help all glass professionals across the country.”
