NGA and GANA Combination Finalized
The National Glass Association, Vienna, Virginia, and the Glass Association of North America are now one, united voice representing the flat glass and glazing industry. The associations embarked on the combination quest in spring 2017 with the NGA and GANA memberships voting to approve the deal in less than a year. The newly combined association will be known as the National Glass Association; a name change will be considered within two years of the closing date.

I am very pleased, and as someone who has worked for both organizations and knows the strengths and weaknesses on both sides, this really is an excellent union.
