Founded in 1995, the IGA is the oldest, largest and leading professional organization for the automotive glass repair and replacement (AGRR) industry. The IGA inspires and enriches our members by promoting the value of safety, quality and business know-how. Professional members of the IGA must pass rigorous acceptance standards, including a combination of accredited safety education and/or full-time work experience and passage of a accreditation examination administered by the National Council for Auto Glass Qualification (NCAGQ) or the Automotive Glass Safety Council (AGSC) formally known as AGRSS.
IGA Industry Partners include suppliers and distributors with some 500+ individual representatives, uniting the professional member with manufacturers of industry-related products and services.
