The Finishing Trades Institute of Southern California, in collaboration with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), hosted its first Glass & Glazing Forum on April 14, 2022, at the new Apprenticeship Training Center in Commerce. The forum offered architects the opportunity to earn AIA HSW credits by attending their continuing education sessions throughout the day. The architects were joined by vendors, glazing contractors, and other industry leaders joined together for a day filled with educational presentations, vendor demonstrations, raffle prizes, and plenty of networking opportunities. Southern California Glass Management Association hosted our own booth at the event complete with business card raffles, prizes, and an interactive safety activity!
