AWA
 
With nearly 600 member companies, representing up to 18,000 employees, the Australian Window Association is the National Industry Association representing all types of window and glazed door manufacturers and their suppliers. It  is a co-operative; all members have one vote irrespective of size and financial contribution. A full-time Executive Director manages the Association which has a full-time staff of twelve. The Association Business Plan is monitored and reviewed by an elected Board representing all states and territories of Australia and international interests.
 
We provide a National technical voice through representation on 20 Australian Standard Committees, the Building Code Committee, Residential and Commercial Building Regulation Committees and Committees for Mandatory Energy Requirements and keep the window industry informed via magazines, website, meetings, conferences and industry exhibitions and promote the industry through media outlets, trade exhibitions and presentations at industry conferences.
 
The AWA manages NATA accreditation and compliance programs for manufacturers, handles dispute resolution with consumers and manages the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) that provides the industry with energy ratings for their fenestration systems in alignment with the emerging energy regulations and greenhouse gas reduction targets and was a co-founder of the Australian Fenestration Rating Council (AFRC) and established the international partnership with the National Fenestration rating Council (NFRC) based in the USA.
 
We are a Registered Training Organisation, through our Australian Fenestration Training Institute, which runs both accredited and proprietary training offering a career path for the industry. We have strong working partnerships with Australian and international building industry associations that include the BPIC, HIA, MBA, AIBS and ABSA and government bodies including Window Associations in NZ, China, USA, Canada, UK, Japan and South Africa.
 
Our membership of the FCJ Alliance further enhances our position to advocate for and support this diverse Australian industry sector and provides the opportunity to present a united and extremely large front to regulators and government.
