IG certification and as an advocate for the insulating glass
manufacturers and their suppliers in North America,” says Cooper.
“Working at Guardian’s Science and Technology Center has provided me a
great deal of leadership training, and I am honored to take over as
president of IGMA. I look forward to serving the growing IGMA membership
as well as the IG community.”
 
David replaces outgoing president Ray Wakefield of Trulite Industries. The board thanked Ray for his contributions as president and his active
participation at all levels of IGMA over the past 11 years.
