AAMA Announces 2013 Schedule of Events, Focuses on Innovation at Annual Conference

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host its 76th Annual Conference for fenestration industry leaders and decision makers, February 24-27, at the Loews Ventana Canyon located in Tucson, AZ.

The event will feature keynote speaker, Robert Tucker, author of Innovation is Everybody's Business, who will discuss tools and strategies that can help managers and their employees hone their ability to identify opportunities for success, take initiative and develop unconventional solutions.  Immediately following the keynote presentation, Tucker will host and moderate a discussion panel with AAMA leaders, including Rod Hershberger, COO and President of PGT Industries; Georges Thiret, Consultant to Graham Architectural Products; and Ray Garries, Corporate Manager of Codes and Regulatory Affairs for JELD-WEN. “In today’s uncertain economy, it is especially imperative for fenestration companies to seek out new ways to separate themselves from the competition and provide innovative products that meet their customers’ needs,” says Rich Walker, AAMA President and CEO. “The panel discussion is an excellent opportunity to hear from a few of AAMA’s own thought leaders about their experiences in advancing the fenestration industry.”Also during the Annual Conference, Dr.Esmael Adibi, Director of the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research at Chapman University, will discuss the role of monetary and fiscal policies affecting the national economy, specifically focusing on the European debt crisis, job and residential housing market outlook, the future of interest rates, as well as the commercial real estate market.
