GANA Announces Return of “Squaretable” Meeting
The Glass Association of North America (GANA) will hold a GANA Northeast Roundtable November 8 at the Renaissance Newark Airport Hotel in Newark, N.J. The event will be hosted by John Dwyer, president of the Syracuse Glass Co., and Arthur Berkowitz, president of JE Berkowitz LP. The November 8 meeting marks a return of the former “Squaretable” meeting that was held annually by GANA for industry leaders to gather and discuss various issues involving glass fabrication. In addition to an update by GANA executive vice president Bill Yanek, a technical and advocacy update by GANA technical director Urmilla Sowell, Chris Barry of Pilkington North America Inc. will give a presentation titled “How to Calculate Glass and Sealant Stresses in IG.”

The meeting also will include an open session during which all attendees will have the chance to discuss three to five topics, selected from ideas submitted by all attendees, approximately two weeks prior to the event.

“GANA and the Flat Glass Marketing Association before it held a regional executive conference in the Northeast for many years,” says Dwyer. “We thought we would do a reprise of this event. This meeting that we’re calling the ‘roundtable’ is intended to interest executive representatives of GANA member firms and prospects. Attendees will get an update on the important work GANA staff is performing for members and for the industry, have the ability to share information in interactive discussions concerning current issues, all in a convenient location for many of our executive representatives. If the event proves popular, it could lead to other regional meetings of this type.”
