The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has opened registration for the AAMA 79th Annual Conference, to be held Feb. 14-17 in Huntington Beach, Calif. A special rate is guaranteed through Jan. 21, and attendees are encouraged to book before this date.

The AAMA Western Region Winter Summit will immediately follow the conference in the same location, and separate registration is required.

Conference registrants can look forward to the annual awards banquet the night of Mon., Feb. 15. “The banquet will serve to recognize members who have contributed the time and talent necessary to build and sustain a powerful and respected organization,” according to emcee and AAMA’s president and CEO, Rich Walker. The dress code is business casual, and the theme is “surf city.”

Optional Sunday events the day before the conference include a golf scramble tournament and a dolphin and whale watching expedition. For more information about the Annual Conference, visit the event page.

Later this year, the AAMA National Summer Conference will be held at the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio from June 12-15.
