OGMA Newsletter – June 2016
The legal review of the Construction Lien Act has been ongoing but the review group requested another extension to the end of April 2016. Prompt Payment Ontario has begun the lobby effort by mailing letters to all MPPs requesting their release of the report to PPO and to a timely vote in provincial parliament. A lobby day at Queens Park was also held. To review up-to-date information on issues, surveys, and submissions, go to constructionlienactreview.com/documents.
In August, get ready for an evening of exciting thoroughbred racing, outstanding food, and great camaraderie in the decadent Woodbine Club dining room at the Woodbine Racetrack. It’s the perfect venue for getting to meet and have a drink with industry colleagues. Keep your eye open for your flyer or look on the OGMA website to register.
If you like getting up early and welcoming the sunrise with a beer, the OGMA Fishing Derby is for you! Details shall be forthcoming.
The Ontario Glass and Metal Association presented its Awards of Excellence to two Ontario companies at the Top Glass trade conference on April 20. TAGG Industries won the award for Excellence in Architectural Glass Execution, and Perkins Plus Will won Excellence in Architectural Glass Design. TAGG won for its work on Google’s Canadian headquarters in Kitchener, Ont., and Perry Plus Will won for Mohawk College’s David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre. The award was judged by Adrian Phillips and Paul Marcoccia of CS&P Architects. Only OGMA members could nominate winners, but any Ontario architectural glass provider was eligible to win the awards. The OGMA is accepting nominations for its 2017 Awards of Excellence, which will be presented at Top Glass on April 19, 2017.
