About us

Company details

Founded in 1948, the National Glass Association (NGA), www.glass.org, combined with the Glass Association of North America (GANA) on February 1, 2018 to form the largest trade association representing the architectural glass and metals industry supply chain, including glazing contractors, full-service glass companies, glass fabricators, primary glass manufacturers and suppliers to the industry.

NGA represents and advocates for the glass and glazing industry on international and North American building codes, international and North American glazing standards and regulations, and publishes best practices, guidelines and sets standards for the industry.  NGA maintains committee leadership positions at all glass and glazing standards and codes organizations such as ISO, ASTM International, ANSI, ASHRAE and other decision-making bodies.

NGA member volunteers, consultants and staff produce essential industry technical documentation.  These technical resources include peer-reviewed papers, bulletins, manuals, monthly webinars, and architect education sessions to inform the industry and its stakeholders.

NGA's many education and training resources also include the online curriculum portal, MyGlassClass.com, serving U.S. apprenticeship programs.   The NGA Foundation, the charitable arm of the trade association, funds education and training individuals and programs across the United States.    

NGA’s two magazines--Glass Magazine and Window + Door--are relied upon around the globe for accurate and timely information about the glass and fenestration industries, with a focus on North America.     

NGA also produces the industry's largest annual trade show in the Americas,  GlassBuild America, and is the official sponsor of the North American Pavilion at glasstec.
