Just like Compass Ironworks is being constantly scrutinizing its methods for improvement and excellence, Amos Glick is taking the same thought leadership to the industry on the national level through NOMMA, the National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metal Association.
Compass Ironworks was the sole AIA, ASID and ASLA educational provider from the industry to help the design communities better fulfill their clients, needs with the timeless beauty of Iron. This past March, Amos put his experience to work and presented on a national level at the National NOMMA Conference to architects, designers and landscape architects that attended. Amos is also on the NOMMA Industry Marketing committee to facilitate this same learning experience all across the country.
Amos is also involved in the Accreditation and Certification committee to raise the bar for the Iron industry and advocate education and knowledge to better the industry. The goal is for the industry to deepen their individual knowledge, promote quality awareness which will translate into a better Ironworks experience for consumers across the country.
The standards for the workshops are still being developed with there being 3 tiers to be designated, silver gold or platinum. The shops knowledge base and sophistication level will dictate what rank that shop reaches. The North East Chapter of NOMMA meets periodically at different workshops across the region.
