USGNN Original StoryGANA Staff Passes Torch During Glass Week Celebration

Now that the Glass Association of North America's (GANA) joint Glass Week and Building Envelope Contractors (BEC) conference have drawn to an end, the association is preparing for changes within its staff.

During a dinner on Friday night, Glass Week attendants recognized outgoing GANA executive director Stan Smith who will be retiring as of March 1. The association honored Smith with many thanks and the presentation of a ticket for a seven-day cruise, a token to lead the hardworking staff member into his retirement. In addition, USGlass magazine presented Smith with a personalized cover in recognition of his frequent contributions to both the industry and the publication. During the dinner, as well as throughout the week, Glass Week attendees and GANA members were introduced to incoming executive director William Yanek (CLICK HERE to read more) who has worked closely with Smith for the past six months.

The GANA members next turned their attention to one of their own. William Coddington of W.S. Coddington Consulting was brought to the stage during the Friday night reception where he was formally presented with a GANA Honorary Membership due to his valuable work over the course of 40 years in the industry (CLICK HERE for more on Coddington's contributions).
