The second annual Glass & Glazing Advocacy Days will be held March 27-28 in Washington, DC. This is our opportunity to gain the attention of agency officials and congressional members to showcase your business and the value of the U.S. architectural glass industry. Policy priorities at the 2023 event are Recyclability/Sustainability, High-performance Glazing, School Security and Workforce Development.
There is no registration cost, but space is limited to participants from NGA member companies on a first-come, first-serve basis. Contact Amber Johnson with questions or to RSVP.
Based on last year’s success, NGA will again host NGA members, stakeholders from DOE and EPA, and congressional members.
This is an important opportunity to directly engage with agency officials and congressional members* on the most meaningful ways NGA member companies and the glass and glazing industry at large contribute to the economy; the workforce; and the safety, health and wellbeing of our fellow citizens.
*Participation by congressional members is subject to availability and subject to change due to late-breaking congressional floor proceedings. Congressional members may be represented by their staff.
(As of March 17; subject to change; more details will be provided as they become available.)
