The Architectural Glass and Metal Certification Council (AGMCC) named six new board members for 2023. The AGMCC and its board oversee the North American Contractor Certification (NACC) and Architectural Glass and Metal Technician (AGMT) programs.

The 18-member panel includes split representation from glaziers/glazing contractors and general contractors, architects, component manufacturers, curtainwall consultants, specifiers and other glazing project stakeholders. Members serve two-year terms.

The six new members are:

  • Dana Landis, PE, building enclosure consultant and architectural engineer with Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates Inc. and president of the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants;
  • Michael Laughlin, executive at large of District Council 21, representative of Glaziers Local Union 252, and president of the Atlantic and Cape May County (N.J.) Building Trades Council;
  • Patrick McIntyre, CEO of Synergy Glass & Door Service of Collingdale, Pa.;
  • Jeremy McLain, vice president of operations with Chandler Architectural Products of West Springfield, Mass.;
  • Kyle Sharp, CEO of Sharp Glass of San Antonio; and
  • Mike Villeneuve, professional glazier based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The AGMCC states that Landis represents design and construction industry interests while Laughlin, McIntyre, McLain, Sharp and Villeneuve represent glazing interests on the board. The six replace founding AGMCC board members Jim Stathopoulos, Paddy Byrne, Terry Webb, Joseph Ashdale, Felix Munson, and Michael Spence, whose terms have expired.

“I bring a dual perspective,” says McIntyre on his new role. “My background includes the knowledge of a glazier in the field and understanding the hands-on requirements for installations. I’ve also built my company and understand how to run a business. Both perspectives are important to shape the NACC and AGMT certification programs – and ideally help them lead to more work for certified companies and individuals.”
