Founded in 1948, the National Glass Association (NGA), www.glass.org, combined with the Glass Association of North America (GANA) in 2018 to form the largest trade association serving the architectural glass and metals industry supply chain, including glazing contractors, full-service glass companies, glass fabricators, primary glass manufacturers and suppliers to the industry. It is a technical powerhouse that brings some of the best minds to the table to create technical resources and promote and advocate for glass in buildings. NGA's education and training resources—including MyGlassClass.com—and its official publications Glass Magazine and Window + Door, keep the industry knowledgeable and well informed. NGA also produces the industry's largest annual trade show in the Americas, GlassBuild America, and hosts these conferences: NGA Glass Conferences, Building Envelope Contractors (BEC) Conference, Glazing Executives Forum, and GPAD (Glass Processing Automation Days). NGA also has The NGA Foundation for training the industry and educating consumers about the many ways glass and glazing contribute to a safe, healthy, sustainable and inspiring built environment.
