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

and the publication. During the dinner, as well as throughout the
