Fenestration Canada continues to be very active in all aspects of the industry to ensure our members are well represented and receive value for their membership. We are very fortunate to have a dedicated Executive Committee and Board of Directors from across the country who is working actively on behalf of our members.
Preparations are moving along well for our spring meeting in St. John’s NF. The event is scheduled from May 30th to June 1st. at the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland. We plan to have some great networking opportunities and social events, along with a significant business program featuring topical speakers on timely subjects!
The FC Committees continue to work very hard in support of the association’s agenda. They focus on such key issues as the Win-door show, Membership and Marketing, Education, Technical and Government Relations. These Committees continue to do a significant amount of work on behalf of the association and the industry. We have to recognize the Chairs and members of these committees for their efforts.
WINDOOR 2013 is Nov. 12-14, 2013 Our Show Committee is already at work to make the 2013 Win-door Show successful for everyone. We were very impressed with the exhibits in 2012 and with the number of attendees coming out to the educational seminars.
Our Win-door Show Committee continually looks for new ways to reach out to new businesses and individuals to participate in this event - either as an exhibitor or an attendee. We encourage all fenestration industry associations to consider holding their meetings at/during our tradeshow to capitalize on the opportunity to have their business sessions, attend the show, network with businesses and individuals and attend the educational conferences.
Our Technical Advisor, Jeff Baker continues to concentrate his efforts on codes and standards work, to ensure that code bodies understand the industry and our technical issues, so that we are represented and people and organizations are educated about windows, doors and skylights. In concert with this work, our Technical Committee is active in providing input and opinion on key issues that potentially impact our products
Our committees combine their talents and expertise at times to address critical issues
Members are always encouraged to visit the Fenestration Canada website at www.fenestrationcanada.ca for regular updates and access to important industry information in the members’ login area.

Fenestration Canada is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with and partner with provincial window and door associations in Quebec and BC and also with IGMA and SAWDAC at the national level. We look forward to continuing to partner and enhance the co-operation between the key organizations within the sector.
In closing I would like to thank all our volunteers for their contributions. We have a special group in our association and their commitment to enhancing our association is impressive!
