The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) has announced that its fall
2005 technical services committee meeting will take place during the American
Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) fall meeting, October 23-26 in
According to the announcement, scheduling the meetings together allows both
organizations to further explore areas of mutual interest, such as gas permeability,
gas retention, insulating glass unit performance and product certification.
"Joint meetings and forums allow for increased industry participation,
education and feedback on those issues of paramount importance to the insulating
glass industry," said Margaret Webb, IGMA executive director. "This
meeting will provide for direct input and feedback between the members of both
organizations, reduce the duplication of industry resources and strengthen the
focus on those areas of mutual interest."
"AAMA and partnering organizations have reaped many benefits from joint
task groups and co-sited meetings in the past few years," said Rick Walker,
AAMA's executive vice president. "Our members are eager for the opportunity
to work more closely with an association of the stature of IGMA."
