Long Island Meeting Draws Huge Crowd

The Independent Glass Association and the Long Island Glass Association co-sponsored a meeting last Wednesday to bring area businesses up to date on the two most pressing subjects in the industry today: the NAGS rebalancing and steering.

Howard Cohen, president of LIGA, reported that 45 glass shops were represented at the evening meeting, with mot of them sending at least two people and a number of them three or four. Total attendance hovered at the 100 mark, making it one of the largest, if not the largest, meeting every held on Long Island.

Grant Healey, Pilkington, handled the first part of the program and highlighted for attendees some of the things which may happen with the new rebalancing. Cohen said that the speaker couldn't give a lot of specifics because "it's all up in the air," but that the audience had a lot of questions about the new NAGS structure.

Marck Anderson, Independent Glass Association, spoke during the second part of the program on what his group is doing nationwide, including the lawsuit it has filed against Safelite for illegal steering.
