Cambridge, Ohio – August 27, 2009 – Edgetech’s regional sales manager, Jim Plavecsky, is once again presenting at the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s (AAMA) “Architects of a Better Mind,” which will be held in conjunction with GlassBuild America 2009 on Sept. 30 in Atlanta.  Architects of a Better Mind is an AIA-approved continuing education seminar offering courses related to the residential and commercial window, door and skylight industry. Plavecsky’s presentation, “Designing Windows for Improved Sound Attenuation,” covers how sound travels through the window, sound testing and design factors that will dampen sound, such as argon gas filling, glass laminating, controlling air leakage and the use of structural foam spacer systems.  Architects who attend the full program will earn eight learning units (LUs), all of which qualify as Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) credits—that's the full year's HSW requirement for AIA members. For a listing of topics and more information, please visit the "Architects" section of www.aamanet.org.    Plavecsky has more than 20 years of industry experience and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from Gannon University in Erie, Penn., and an MBA in marketing from Oklahoma State University. For more information on Edgetech’s news and upcoming events, visit www.edgetech360.com.  Edgetech to Offer Continuing Education Credits at “Architects of a Better Mind”  About Edgetech I.G.
