Registration Open for FGIA FENBC Region 2023 Industry Summit
Registration is now open for the Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance FenBC Region 2023 Industry Summit, to be held virtually on April 12. The one-day event will feature content for both residential and commercial sectors and will honor Zana Gordon, former FENBC executive director, who retired from the industry in 2022 after a celebrated career in British Columbia.
“Because the region is committed to continuing to serve both commercial and residential markets, this event’s content will appeal to a wide audience,” says Dave Goldsmith of Ply Gem Canada, FGIA FenBC Region president. “The Industry Summit is a valuable experience for those who operate in or do business in British Columbia and can’t be missed.”
What to expect
With the Industry Summit being more focused on business operations, the commercial discussion will center around managing price escalation and other contract considerations with insights from Tyler Galbraith of Jenkins Marzban Logan. Those with more residential interests can learn about leveraging BC window replacement rebates within the sales process and the Home Performance Stakeholder Council contractor network qualification for their installer teams.
There will be a Code Talkers panel discussion addressing changes within the Part 9 and Part 3 building code requirements. Event participants will also hear about the construction industry’s workplace health and safety initiatives under WorkSafeBC. Review the schedule to read more about the sessions planned, in addition to the tribute to Gordon.
“As a respected leader, Zana advocated for the industry in the code and regulatory arenas, working with both FenBC members and government officials and ensuring that members were well informed,” says Janice Yglesias, FGIA executive director. “Under her leadership, FenBC established a well-respected reputation as a residential and commercial fenestration expert within the province and we look forward to carrying on that legacy under FGIA. Be sure to join us as we thank Zana for her guidance and dedication over the years.”
