IGA/NWRA Conferences On Par For Strong Start

Both the Independent Glass Association (IGA) Independences' Days and the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA) Annual Conference officially began today with seminars starting at 8:00 a.m. but if yesterday's golf tournament is any indication, this year's event will be more than fulfilling and a rousing success.

Fun on the Green

More than 30 golfers signed up to play in the opening golf tournament and the winning foursome of Rick Mathis (Sika), Bradley Gross (Creative Extruded Products), Jeff Woodford (Sika) and Dan Johnson (Johnson's Auto Glass and Trim Shop) each came away with one hundred dollar gift cards to Legacy Golf Course for their combined team score of -11 par.

Mathis was also recognized for the longest drive and Bernie Defreitas was recognized as the golfer with the shot that landed closest to the pin.

Events continued in the evening with more than 100 people attending a very successful cocktail party sponsored by Dow.

Continuing Education

IGA seminars began this morning with a conference welcome and overview by Association president Dave Zoldowski. Topics on the schedule include the state of anti-steering lawsuits, formation of state chapters, and two combined seminars, one on the METRYX systems and one on industry standards.

NWRA president Paul Syfko opened the NWRA seminar track and the afternoon includes an open board meeting.

Stay tuned to glassBYTES for updates as they happen at both conferences.
