Glass Show Separates from the Art Glass Association
Co., owner and manager of the Art Glass Show, announced that it
will no longer manage the Art Glass Association as of January 18,
"It was a decision made with a heavy heart," said president
and CEO Walter Offinger.
Requests from members of the association's board to set up systems
outside of those already established by the management company was
the reason cited for the split. Offinger's systems are in accordance
with its ISO 9001 registration, and the American Society of Association
"If the board chooses to implement different systems that those
we use, it takes away our efficiencies to the membership as a full-service
association management company," said Offinger.
Offinger will continue to own, produce and manage the Art Glass
Show, which is scheduled for July 8-11 in Portland, Oregon.
