GANA-IGMA Merger No Longer “On the Horizon”
September 2, 2009
During the Glass Association of North Americas (GANA) Insulating
Division Meeting, which took place today as part of the associations
Fall Conference, GANA executive vice president Bill Yanek provided
an update on status of the proposed merger with the Insulating Glass
Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA). (CLICK

Yanek explained that both groups had received and compiled the
results of a member-wide survey that was issued to poll interest
in merging the alliance with GANAs Insulating Division and
found the results to be inconclusive.
A merger is not imminent and not on the near horizon but
probably somewhere down the road, Yanek summarized.
Despite this, Yanek noted that the groups would continue to work
closely together in the future. One such example would be the joint
meeting of the groups; GANAs Glass Week and BEC Conference
will be held concurrently with IGMAs Annual Meeting, March
25- 30, 2010, at the Paris in Las Vegas (CLICK

We appreciate IGMA partnering with us during these tough
travel times, Yanek commented.
The GANA Fall Conference continues through Thursday. Stay tuned
