The IGMA Leadership Development Program focuses on the soft skills a leader needs to achieve his or her full potential. Everyone in the workforce develops hard skills required to be employed in the insulating glass industry, but developing soft skills (communicating effectively with people, recognizing a company's culture and effectively aligning with that culture, understanding accountability in the workplace, etc.) provides the necessary intangibles to become a great leader. Once again, IGMA is leading the glass industry into the future by creating the first leadership development program for manufacturers and fabricators of its kind.

It really is a new Fenestration Canada. Last year was a transition year that started with the hiring of a new association management team in Zzeem. The Zzeem team have been on a steep learning curve since they started in March of 2016, but by all accounts have managed to bring our association through a very vital period. Our new executive director, Cindy Gareau, has been a fireball from day 1 and has become an important cog in the operation of Fenestration Canada and all the committees that endeavour to bring effective programs to our membership.
Last year, the IGMA held two fabricator workshops in Texas and Minnesota, where more than 80 practitioners from the IG industry were led through the most important aspects of fabricating and testing IG units by the experts of our industry.
