NGA Chapters

NGA supports the activities and growth of regional glass industry associations through its Affiliated Chapter Program and encourages glass and glazing companies to participate in their local associations. 

As part of the NGA Affiliated Chapter Program, regional glass associations benefit from NGA promotion and participation in independently run regional tradeshows and other chapter events and activities, opportunities to pass along savings to chapter members on NGA’s programs, products and services, and use of the NGA Affiliated Chapter Logo.

Members of NGA Affiliated Chapters receive special NGA member pricing on courses, industry reference & technical manuals, and GlassBuild America and other NGA events. NGA Affiliated Chapter members also have full access to NGA websites and online resources. (See below for more information on NGA benefits available to chapter members.)
