Fenestration Canada's trip to Halifax May 30 through June 2 generated significant excitement and interest for the industry, attracting about 170 delegates from across the country to the Westin Nova Scotian on the harbourfront. The week began with a tour of Atlantic Windows in Port Elgin, N.B. – about two hours away – then moved through two days of committee and board meetings with social events in the evenings. Friday was the big day with education sessions and panels culminating in the President's Dinner and presentation of the C.P. Loewen Award and the new President's Award.

They say perception is reality so perhaps its suitable that 2017 is recognized as the 25th anniversary event of the annual Manitoba window and door industry golf event – with a slight twist. One of the most knowledgeable individuals on the topic, Roland Toker, advises that the very first Manitoba Window and Door Golf event was held in 1991.

Al Dueck is clearly a man who is willing to work his posterior off for the good of his business community. As chairman of FenCon17 – the fenestration industry conference he imagined, sold, organized and hosted on Feb. 10 with the help of his friends at Fenestration Manitoba – Dueck created a day packed wall-to-wall with fresh, exclusive education and networking opportunities aimed squarely at window and door manufacturers.
This past fall, I attended GlassBuild and WinDoor on behalf of SAWDAC. While both shows try to accomplish the same objectives, each has a very different feel, which was great to experience. At GlassBuild I connected with the National Glass Association in the U.S. and we are looking to share some best practices between our associations.

Feb. 13, 2017 - Al Dueck is clearly a man who is willing to work his posterior off for the good of his business community. As chairman of FenCon17 – the fenestration industry conference he imagined, sold, organized and hosted on Feb. 10 with the help of his friends at Fenestration Manitoba – Dueck created a day packed wall-to-wall with fresh, exclusive education and networking opportunities aimed squarely at window and door manufacturers. One wonders just how many phone calls he made to attract the all-star presenters and the healthy crowd of over 140 attendees, but it seems safe to assume that everyone in the room was contacted more than once. Thanks to the organizing talents of Nancy Zubriski, Fenestration Manitoba executive director, the result was a polished event that remained friendly and accessible. It isn't hard to imagine FenCon becoming an important recurring forum drawing visitors from all over the country.
