The National Glass Association named Paul Bush as the volunteer leader of the NGA Advocacy Committee. Bush, director, quality and technical services, Vitro Architectural Glass, also serves as chair on the National Fenestration Rating Council board of directors, and as first vice president of the Glass Materials Council at the American Architectural Manufacturers Association.   

“Paul is well positioned and very knowledgeable about the issues our industry must address proactively moving forward,” says Nicole Harris, NGA president and CEO.   

The Advocacy leadership position is the last of the four NGA committees to be filled for the 2018-2020 term following the formation of the Forming, Fabricating, and Installing committees under the Association’s combined structure. The Advocacy, Forming and Fabricating committees will gather at the Annual Conference, Naples, Florida, Jan. 22-24; the Installing Committee will gather at the BEC Conference, Las Vegas, March 3-5.
