Associations, Awards, Affiliations
Gamka has received too many plaques for outstanding sales achievements to list. We welcome interested parties to stroll along the office hallways to see the manufacturers’ awards displayed on the walls. Also displayed are many of the Membership Signs for the associations we are in. There are many other groups on whose rolls we appear. For details on who they are and their function, open the file entitled “Associations”. If you are in a related field, we encourage you to join as we did. There is no point in reinventing the wheel if you can learn from someone else. And you can always learn something from your peers.
