In this meeting, 26 men represented 45 stained glass firms in person or by proxy. The major impetus of the meeting was money. The stained glass industry felt that European competition was unfair.
Even more devastating than foreign competition was the domestic competition with debilitating price-cutting being the norm in the difficult depression-like era at the turn of the century.
Lloyd in Stained Glass in America lists eight points of the early aims of the Association: To put an end to cutthroat competition that did nothing more than encourage poor quality and discourage honest craftsmanship To educate the public and help churches and architects to have a better understanding of stained glass To promote real aesthetic values and standards for the craft To combat low quality and low prices of foreign competition To promulgate friendship and understanding among the craftsmen themselves To counteract the pressure of organized labor that, at the time, caused unsettled conditions in a largely unorganized craft-industry To establish economic standards that would end the practice of ridiculously low pricing that came about through ignorance of how to figure a job To raise the standards of the craft both artistically and economically Ludwig Von Gerichten of Columbus, Ohio was undoubtedly the chief catalyst in the founding of the National Ornamental Glass Manufacturers Association.

Following an Association meeting, complete minutes down to motion for adjournment were included.
A great deal of column space was devoted to promoting tariffs on low price European imports, but with few results except during World War I, when France and Germany were completely shut off.
