THANK YOU NGA VOLUNTEERS

This week is National Volunteer Week, which is dedicated to celebrating the impact of volunteer service and the collective power of our volunteers to come together to tackle tough challenges and build a stronger, more resilient community. Thank you to our many volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to the initiatives of the association in our glazing and glass building products community.

We know your volunteerism extends well beyond just this week, and we are grateful for each activity and interaction we have with you. We also encourage you to inspire others to take action and discover their purpose towards creating meaningful change.
