About Gypsum Association
ORGANIZATIONAL INFORMATION: The Gypsum Association (“GA”) represents the collective interests of the U.S. and Canadian gypsum panel manufacturing industry. Gypsum panels (commonly known as gypsum board or drywall) are used to cover the walls and ceilings in virtually all residential dwellings constructed in the United States and Canada. They are also used extensively in non-residential construction as mandated by the building codes. Members of the GA manufacture over 95 percent of the gypsum panel products sold in the U.S. and Canada. The GA was formally established in 1930 and was incorporated in Illinois in 1960. While the Association has a relatively small number of members, it represents a very large industry. The most current estimate of the industry places its market capitalization at upwards of $10 billion dollars. It is estimated that the industry directly employees between 7,000 and 10,000 people. ASSOCIATION FOCUS: The GA is a small-staff association that is focused on providing services to its members in the areas where it can create the greatest collective benefit for its constituents. It does not have a trade show or engage in broad public relations campaign...s. The primary areas of specific focus include: • Serves as a leader for the industry in the twin realms of building codes and technical product standards creation and management. • Standards and technical document creation. The GA creates many technical documents on gypsum panels. Examples abound on gypsum.org. • Serves as the sustainability leader for the industry. The Association is quite engaged in taking a leadership role in providing sustainability services for the industry. It has recently developed and published Life-cycle Analysis (LCA), Product Category Rules (PCR) and Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) documents for North American Gypsum Boards. • Coordinates the regulatory focus of the industry. This generally involves working with federal-level regulatory agencies on precise, focused issues. Occasionally, the Association becomes involved on the state regulatory level. • Targets and engages AEC professionals to educate on the proper specification, installation, finishing, handling and storage of gypsum panel products. STAFFING AND HEADQUARTERS OFFICE: Staff consists of five individuals (with the dedicated support of numerous highly qualified service providers): • Executive Director • Director of Industry Issues and External Affairs • Director of Codes, Standards and Research • Technical and Market Advisor • Office Manager/Bookkeeper Our 2,400 sf office is approximately three blocks from the Silver Spring metro station. ASSOCIATION SET-UP: The Association presently has two committees: one addresses building codes and industry technical issues (BCTC) and the second addresses external industry issues (EIC), such as sustainability, regulatory issues, and governmental topics. It also has responsibility for the safety and promotion issues that need to be addressed by the organization. The committees meet face-to-face twice each year in the spring and fall and throughout the year via conference call or video meeting. The face-to-face meetings span three days, generally in March and October. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted all meetings to virtual meeting platforms for the time being.
