Ray Sands Glass is proud to announce the election of our very own Dave Burns to the Independent Glass Association’s Board of Directors. With his extensive experience in the business and enthusiastic participation in the the independent glass community, we aren’t surprised that he was chosen for an organization with a proactive approach to preserving the industry.
The IGA, a non-profit trade association, works to protect consumers’ right to choose an auto glass provider, and to promote excellence in the independently owned glass shops around the nation. By combining efforts, the IGA hopes to give a voice to small, local glass businesses, so that they are more able to compete with the national chains that seem to be taking over. And since each member of the board owns or manages an independent glass shop, they are keenly aware of the issues and challenges that small business owners are facing in this fluctuating economy.
We are incredibly glad Dave has been chosen to be a representative in that shared voice of independent glass. With his enthusiastic approach to protecting the rights of consumers and local business alike, we know they couldn’t have chosen a better advocate!
