Make Your Voice Heard
Our committees develop new resources and address critical issues facing the industry. Make your voice heard by volunteering for one of NGA’s Committees—Advocacy, Forming, Fabricating or Installing.
Committee Structure and Leadership
Join NGA in promoting and defending the use of glass in the built environment. NGA represents and advocates for the industry’s interests, collaborating whenever possible with other trade groups.
Made up of industry fabricators and suppliers, the Fabricating Committee produces Glass Informational Bulletins, manuals and other technical resources related to decorative, energy efficient, fire-rated, insulating, laminated, protective, and tempered glass products.
The NGA Installing Committee serves as the hub for all discussion and activities related to installing companies—including contract glaziers, building envelope contractors and full-service glass companies—with a focus on education, technical resources, events, and communication across the supply chain.
GICC works directly with NGA’s code consultants to build greater knowledge and acceptance of architectural glass, glazing materials, and glazing systems as safe, efficient, effective, and economical construction products. GICC seeks to educate model code, standard-setting, and building code organizations and officials, as well as the general public.
The GICC meets virtually to discuss updates to the ICC Building Code and the Canadian Model National Building Codes. GICC is led by the Executive Committee:
- GICC Chair - Devin Bowman of Technical Glass Products replaces Greg McKenna of Kawneer Company
- GICC Vice Chair - Steve Thomas of Guardian Glass replaces Darrell Smith of IWFA
- GICC Secretary/Treasurer - Ron Hull of Kuraray continues his service in this role
- Thanks to our GICC leadership for their time and dedication to serving the glass and glazing industry interests in the building codes.

Current Committee Task Groups
Our active task groups meet every four to six weeks to develop new technical resources and revise existing publications. Task group meetings generally last 30 to 60 minutes, with additional time on a volunteer basis to draft content. See our current volunteer openings and get involved.
