OGMA Newsletter – April 2018

After a lifetime of serving on the boards of the OGMA and prior to that the Metro Toronto Glass Association – and putting in a few terms as president – Ennio Rea decided it was finally time for a break and to move on to make room for some new blood. Ennio was the face of the association for a long time and his years of dedication and countless contributions are greatly appreciated by everyone in the industry. Ennio has no plans of retiring from his day job any time soon so you’ll still see all you can stand of him.

The board would also like to thank Doug Morris for his service to the OGMA, particularly in recruiting new members and driving our charitable contributions.  Doug is also moving on.

Jim Shepherd
