March 21, 2023  By FGIA


Registration is now open for the Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) FENBC Region 2023 Industry Summit, to be held virtually on Wed., April 12. The one-day event will feature content for both residential and commercial sectors and will honor Zana Gordon, former FENBC Executive Director, who retired from the industry in 2022 after a celebrated career in British Columbia. Register now for this important regional industry event.

“Because the region is committed to continuing to serve both commercial and residential markets, this event’s content will appeal to a wide-ranging audience,” said Dave Goldsmith (Ply Gem Canada, https://www.plygem.ca/), FGIA FENBC Region President. “The Industry Summit is a valuable experience for those who operate in or do business in British Columbia and can’t be missed.”

With the Industry Summit being more focused on business operations, the commercial discussion will center around managing price escalation and other contract considerations with insights from Tyler Galbraith of Jenkins Marzban Logan (JML, https://www.jml.ca/). Those with more residential interests will learn about leveraging BC window replacement rebates within the sales process and the Home Performance Stakeholder Council (HPSC, https://homeperformance.ca/) contractor network qualification for their installer teams.

As with previous FGIA FENBC Region events, there will be a Code Talkers panel discussion addressing changes within the Part 9 and Part 3 building code requirements. Event participants will also hear about the construction industry’s workplace health and safety initiatives under WorkSafeBC). Review the schedule to read more about the sessions planned, in addition to the tribute to Gordon.

“As a respected leader, Zana advocated for the industry in the code and regulatory arenas, working with both FENBC members and government officials and ensuring that members were well informed,” said Janice Yglesias, FGIA Executive Director. “Under her leadership, FENBC established a well-respected reputation as a residential and commercial fenestration expert within the province and we look forward to carrying on that legacy under FGIA. Be sure to join us as we thank Zana for her guidance and dedication over the years.”
