NGA Glass Conference Next Week - It's Not Too Late to Register

The inaugural online conference hits Zoom July 28 through July 30

Embracing the opportunity to reach a wider audience online, NGA Glass Conference 2020 will offer sessions beneficial to the entire glazing and glass building products supply chain; from glazing contractors to float glass manufacturers and everyone in between.

NGA has accredited several of the sessions for AIA Learning Units (LUs)—a total of 9.5 LUs – and now has 275 architects and counting registered to attend. Many non-members and first-time attendees have been registering and all are encouraged to participate.

“It’s exciting to have both our veteran attendees along with the first-timers and architects participating this year,” says Urmilla Sowell, NGA advocacy and technical director. “This makes for more robust discussions and interesting learning opportunities for all.”
