This promotional arm was consolidated into NWMA in 1975. -In 1985, the name was changed to the National Wood Window & Door Association to provide an even better awareness of the products manufactured by its members. -In 1998, the name was changed again to the Window and Door Manufacturers Association reflecting the increasing diversity of manufacturing materials. -In 2008, opened an office in Washington DC that greatly expanded the Association's legislative and regulatory advocacy initiatives.
