The OGMA is pivoting to find new ways to deliver value to our members since our bread-and-butter live events can’t go forward. Watch your inbox and ogma.ca for a series of educational white papers prepared by OGMA members. The first one, by OGMA vice-president Jeff Makimoto (TAGG) will address the issue of inspecting finished aluminum products. More will be rolling out through the year. The year 2020 has been very difficult for many of us and it has been especially challenging for the OGMA. All of our events are geared towards physical attendance, which we were not able to do. Because of this the OGMA will not be charging any dues in 2021 to companies that had paid their 2020 invoice. Although we will not be holding our spring golf tournament in 2021, we are hopeful that circumstances have improved to the point that we will be able to pull off our fall golf tournament that is booked for Sept. 23 at the Country Club in Woodbridge. With the release of multiple vaccines there is light at the end of the tunnel and we plan to resume events next year as soon as it is safe and practical to do so. We hope to see all of you in person next year and resume our role as the networking facilitator of our industry. Also, don’t miss OGMA president Andrew Dolphin’s turn at the microphone on the GlassTalk podcast, available wherever you get your podcasts.
