I think the new window and door dealer group is:
A good idea, and I plan to get involved.
Potentially positive, and I'll continue to watch it.
Not really necessary, as other associations can serve their needs.
Not sure yet.

Christina Lewellen, senior editor of Window & Door

There's lots of dealer-related news to report this week. In addition to announcing our annual Dealers of the Year winners, we're also talking about the newly-launched Window and Door Dealers Alliance. Supported by the National Glass Association, publisher of Window & Door, the new group's organizers are looking at educational programs and other efforts that can help raise the level of professionalism at the often-overlooked retail segment of the window and door industry.

I'd like to hear what you think of this new initiative. Are you intrigued by the fresh energy going into a group of this nature? What do you think a window and door dealer association should focus on as it attempts serve specialty retailers? Send me an email to share.
