Registration for the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2017 AAMA Summer Conference in Newport, Rhode Island, is open, so those in the industry are encouraged to grab a spot at the popular event now. Early bird rates are available until Sun., May 28, and the conference takes place June 18-21.
During the Summer Conference, participants can plan on hearing from a keynote speaker about how the current Trump administration can help or hinder the industry, as well as a full slate of other speakers and presenters. Several workshops will also be available, including two timeslots for a presentation on the new AAMA website called "AAMA Website – New Tools and Helpful Tips for Members," and two chances to hear another session entitled, "Plugging the Leaks on Lawsuits: A Primer for Fenestration Companies to Avoid and Defend Lawsuits." Check the conference schedule for times and locations of these and many other programs.
Plus, as usual, AAMA has scheduled some optional events, including an experience chartering the America's Cup yachts, a tour of Newport, a reception at the Marble House mansion and a chance to enjoy a Rhode Island clambake.
This is the second conference AAMA is hosting with the association's new conference restructuring plans in place, after an initial implementation in February during the Annual Conference. As directed by AAMA's Board of Directors, the conference restructuring plan's goals are to eliminate redundancies, improve the reporting process and develop a conference schedule that enables participants to get the most value out of their financial and time investments in attending a conference. As always, participants are encouraged to visit the registration desk throughout the conference to relay thoughts or feedback.
