The Glass Association of North America (GANA) is an amazing organization for many reasons, most of which is its ability to evolved and the ability for members to affect change. One such new program that has evolved out of a need for regional discussions is the Regional Roundtable Programs. Successfully being kicked off in the NE, the next event is right here in the Pacific NW. Geared towards the busy senior executives of the glass and glazing industry, this all day event will feature lecture and discussion of topics that matter to our area of the world. Here is the complete scoop from GANA, registration is open so get it on! ICD is a proud sponsor of this event. Come see Kris Vockler talk about social media and how it can help as well as hurt you. 


The Glass Association of North America is hosting its NW Roundtable event in Tacoma Washington, October 15th at the Museum of Glass. 

The GANA NW Roundtable is designed for senior executives of the glass and glazing industry, who want to spend one-on-one time with their peers to learn and discuss matters facing their industry. The Roundtable is a combination of educational sessions along with open session discussions that allow for attendees to learn from each other. This is the first time a roundtable is being held in the Pacific Northwest, imitating the highly successful NE Roundtables that GANA has held in the past. 

Registration Fees:

GANA Members $    99
Non-Members $  200
