The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) have officially combined into one organization with the new name, Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA). After a July 2019 vote by both bodies to unify, the two organizations have come together as of Jan. 1, 2020.
FGIA Vision and Mission
The AAMA and IGMA boards of directors met in early December to finalize the vision and mission of the unified organization. The vision focuses on improving home and building performance through better glass, window, door and skylight technologies and standards. The FGIA strives to be a welcoming community, leading the glass, glazing and fenestration industry through research, consensus-based standards, product certification, advocacy, and education and professional development.
FGIA Brand Launch
The new logo and branding will be revealed at the inaugural FGIA Annual Conference, to be held Feb. 10-13, 2020, along with a new promotional video. Those attending the Opening General Session will be among the first to see the new FGIA logo and will learn the story behind it. Registration for the conference is open now.
FGIA 2020 events include the following: FGIA Annual Conference (Feb. 10-13, Fort Lauderdale, Florida), Southeast Region Winter Meeting (Feb. 13-14, Fort Lauderdale, Florida), FGIA Summer Conference (June 22-25, Chicago, Illinois), FGIA Fall Conference (Oct. 5-8, Montreal, Quebec) and the FGIA IG Fabricator Workshop (Nov. 10-12).
