AAMA Concludes its Annual Meeting
When Richard Walker, executive vice president of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) welcomed attendees to the association's annual meeting this week on Monday, February 27, he addressed the packed room by thanking them for what may have been "the biggest attendance ever." This included more than 40 first-time attendees and four prospective members who traveled to Palm Springs, Calif., for the annual event.
John Brunett of Simonton Windows and president of the AAMA board of directors
confirmed for attendees that consolidation discussions between AAMA and the Window
and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) are over.
Brunett outlined AAMA's future objectives as the association moves forward. One of these goals, according to Brunett, "Is to keep AAMA positioned as the official source of information for the fenestration industry."
Another item he mentioned, and discussed at length in several of AAMA's individual sessions, is the association's focus on its certification program.
"We have to differentiate our program from others in the marketplace," said Brunett.
AAMA members worked hard while in Palm Springs attending council meetings, task groups and committees. A full report of the meeting will appear in the April issue of DWM magazine.
