CHICAGO -- Bill Glasgow Sr. of William T. Glasgow Inc., which organized the Amusement and Music Operators Association's trade shows for the past 15 years, has received a commemorative plaque from AMOA president Andy Shaffer of Shaffer Services (Columbus, OH) and executive vice-president Jack Kelleher at a recent luncheon here.
The plaque's message reads: "We say 'thank you so much' for your efforts in directing AMOA trade shows that have made an important contribution to the betterment of our membership, organization and industry." It includes a laser carving of Bill's likeness, and lists the names of the 15 AMOA presidents who served during the years that he managed shows on behalf of the operators association.
Glasgow, who retired in June, headed the organization, which originally ran trade shows for the American Amusement Machine Association. The group later expanded to run shows for AMOA. | SEE STORY
