NWDA Hosts Successful Winter Meeting in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA The Northeast Window & Door Association (NWDA) held its winter meeting January 14-15, 2002, at the Hyatt Regency at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia. Two days full of informative sessions, board meetings, social events and industry updates took place.

The board of directors met and the exhibitor tabletops were opened for the evening portion of Monday, January 14. Here industry members could interact with association members and forge new relations or maintain current partnerships. An additional avenue for networking was the night out at Dave & Busters for all those who chose to attend.

Association information was presented after a full morning breakfast and time to visit the tabletop displays. New officers were elected and announced, and membership information was provided to members including a financial update.

NWDA Members of the NWDA 2002 board of directors are: NWDA president Keith Oakley of Air Chek Mfg., NWDA first vice president Terry Rex of BF Rich, second vice president Jon Hill of Keystone Certifications and treasurer Clark Burget. NWDA active member directors are Willis Schlabach of Sugarcreek Windows, Mike Sugrue of Winchester Industries, Jim Ruby of Lockheed Windows and Art Poland of Thermal Industries. NWDA associate member directors are Mike Mackereth of Architectural Testing, Kim Fondrk of Amesbury Group, Bill Donnelly of Custom Craft Plastics and Tom Scheg of Spectus Systems/A Mik-ron Company.

Oakley presented Peter Dalton, a representative of Habitat for Humanity, with more than $55,000 of materials donated by NWDA members as well as a check for $5,780 from the sales of mulligans for the association’s golf tournaments and other fund raisers. In return, Habitat for Humanity awarded the NWDA with a golden hammer plaque for its many contributions.

PPG provided a session on “Self Cleaning Glass: What Is It and How Does It Work,” and Henry Taylor of Architectural Testing spoke on the facts and misconceptions of acoustical performance. The meeting was well attended and members are already planning to attend the summer meeting to be held July 15-16, 2002, in Turf Valley Resort, Ellicott City, Md.
