OGMA Newsletter – March 2023

The Ontario Glass and Metal Association is excited to announce the addition of five new members to our board of directors: April Donvito, Eric Diotte, Mahendra Ohujja, John Rania, and Robert Casinelli have accepted positions on the Board, joining our board meeting in March.

The OGMA is happy to announce that, for the first time since 2019, we are once again recognizing outstanding work in glass and metal construction in Ontario with our Awards for Excellence. There are two awards: one for excellence in execution and one for excellence in design. Any OGMA member in good standing and/or Ontario Architect Association architect is eligible to win an award for a project completed in Ontario. Members of the OGMA (in good standing) may submit as many nominations as they wish. Visit ogma.ca/award-for-excellence-in-design-and-execution/ for a full list of criteria and to download the nomination form. Projects nominated will be reviewed by a volunteer panel of judges. Nominations close on March 31, 2023, with the awards being presented at Top Glass Conference and Exhibits on April 19, 2023. Winners will receive their award at the show and have their submissions promoted on our website. To nominate yourself or another project participant, email Steve Gusterson at s.gusterson@alumicor.com. Our last award winners included CannonDesign for its work on the York University Student Centre and Stouffville Glass Inc. for its work on the Rob and Cheryl McEwen Graduate Study & Research Building, Schulich School of Business, York University.

Speaking of Top Glass Conference and Exhibits, OGMA will be exhibiting at the show, with members of our board of directors in attendance. Be sure to stop by our booth to say hello. We will also be returning to the Glen Eagle Golf Club in Bolton, Ontario, for our annual Spring Golf Tournament. Be sure to mark Wednesday, June 14 on your calendars and watch your inbox for more details.
