NWRA Announces New Director of Operations

The National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA) has named Patrick M. Smith as its new director of operations. He succeeds longtime employee Peg Stroka, who has moved on to work on standards development fulltime. She has been serving as a staff liaison to the Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standard (ROLAGS), a joint effort between the NWRA and the National Glass Association (NGA). Stroka will continue to work on the standard as an employee of the NGA.

Smith is an employee of Key Communications Inc., which provides association management services for the NWRA. He has served as the marketing manager and member benefits manager for a large health membership organization before coming to Key more than a year ago.

"We are very excited about the future of NWRA," said association president Paul Syfko of Glass Medic. "We are inaugurating a number of new services for every facet of the repair industry and look forward to providing even more value to our members over the next few months. Every company involved in any type of glass repair should be part of the NWRA," said Syfko.

The National Windshield Repair Association is the only association in the world devoted exclusively to the needs of companies that repair glass in cars and buildings. It provides services and programs to meet those needs and hosts two conferences annually. Its next conference will be held November 3-4 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
