Registration for the 2019 Joint American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) Summer Conferences, to be held June 17-20, 2019, in Victoria, British Columbia, is now open. Officials say an early bird rate is guaranteed through May 17. Because this is a combined AAMA and IGMA conference, only one registration fee per attendee is required. All registrations will be processed through AAMA.
