The Canadian Glass Association (CGA), which provides support to the Canadian glass industry regarding building codes, standards and legislation, has selected Centric Management and Consulting to serve as its new management company.

“The Canadian Glass Association is excited to work with Centric, as they also currently manage the Glass Association of North America (GANA),” says CGA president Jim Brady. “This creates the opportunity for synergy within the glazing industry, giving added value for membership.

“This partnership will closely align the two associations, which should negate the possibility of duplication of efforts, while giving the glazing industry as a whole a stronger voice. It is our belief that this is an extremely positive partnership.

Centric currently provides association management to more than ten trade associations and professional societies, according to a press release. It has managed GANA for more than 20 years.

“The Canadian Glass Association provides great resources to the glass industry across Canada,” explains Bill Yanek, president of Centric. “We look forward to enhancing and assisting their efforts to serve as the conduit of critical industry information for Canadian glass and glazing professionals.”
