WORTHINGTON, Ohio - Guardian’s Custom Glass Solutions will be exhibiting at the FMCA 96th International Convention, “Crossroads to Fun,” July 12–15, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Rally will include seminars, exhibits, entertainment, food, games and a youth program. Representatives from Guardian’s Custom Glass Solutions will be positioned at booth 424.

“We are very excited to spend time with our FMCA family in Indy,” Guardian's RV Glass Network General Manager Matt Eder says. "We’ll get firsthand feedback on our new FMCA Windshield Replacement Program and, for the first time, we will present a seminar to help FMCA members get a better understanding of what goes into replacing an RV windshield.”

CGS will be presenting the seminar at the rally on Wednesday, July 12, at 8:15 a.m. The seminar will focus on the challenges RV owners face when getting their windshield replaced as well as information regarding FMCA’s newest member benefit, the Windshield Replacement Program.

The Windshield Replacement Program was announced at FMCA’s 95th International Convention in Chandler, Arizona in March. This new member benefit gives FMCA members access to a dedicated phone number (855 FMCARVG) where Guardian’s RV glass experts can help manage the entire windshield replacement process from insurance claim to final installation. Stop by the CGS booth or attend the seminar to learn more.
