Conference 2024: Sand to Sash

Every year, our community comes together for all things stained glass.

For more than 100 years, The Stained Glass Association of America’s annual conference has served a vital role in the industry, bringing together artists and studios from across the country to exchange ideas and perspectives. Each year's national conference provides an educational and creative hub for glass artists, historians, manufacturers, and architects. Whether you're an established studio or just learning stained glass; if you're an architect or building caretaker; if you're making public art or small panels for private homes, our conferences have something for you.

Please plan on joining your friends and colleagues both familiar and new for an inspirational and thought-provoking conference that will bring every facet of our industry together in celebration.
