(TOPEKA) - The Glass Association of North America (GANA) today announced the re-election of two Division chairs for a second two year term. Re-elected were Max Perilstein of Arch Aluminum & Glass, Co., as the chairman of the Building Envelope Contractors (BEC) Division; and Bob Larson of Craftsman Fabricated Glass, Ltd. as the chairman of the Insulating Division.

Additionally, Stephen Weidner of Pilkington North America, Inc. assumed the chair of the Flat Glass Manufacturing Division, a role previously held by Henry Gorry of Guardian Industries Corp. The Flat Glass Manufacturing Division chairmanship is a one year rotational position.

"We greatly appreciate the commitment of our Division chairs," said Stanley L. Smith, GANA Executive Vice President. "We continue to rely on them to push the Association's standard of excellence forward as we address the needs of the commercial glass and glazing industry."
