Malcolm and Heather MacGregor attended the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists (AWGS) annual convention recently in Las Vegas. The weather was seasonally cool for Nevada, but much warmer than Ottawa!
Sally and Rogers Conant, owners of Orange Restoration Labs and administrators of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, have successfully guided the association since its inception in 1987.
The AWGS certifies its members and provides the opportunity to share information help each other grow. They all provide a written international guarantee for dress preservation, honoured by any other member of the Association (represented in more than 500 cities around the world). Mack MacGregor is one of the founding members of the AWGS and still sits on its Board of Directors. “The advantage of such an organization,” says Mack, “goes beyond offering customers a superior service and guarantee. It allows members to reach out to other cleaners who understand their business to get advice and feedback.”[caption id="attachment_157" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Heather and Malcolm MacGregor with Sally and Rogers Conant[/caption]
