AAMA Summer Conference Opens in Chicago
June 7, 2010

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) conference opened its summer conference in suburban Chicago on June 6, with a preview of its newly-redesigned website, www.aamanet.org. The website officially launches today.

“We have revamped the look and feel of the site,” said association marketing manager Angela Dickson, “you’ll see a lot of member feedback incorporated in it.”

The association held 23 committee, working and task group meetings Sunday afternoon to open the conference, which runs until Wednesday.

Dickson also provided a preview of some of the new professional training programs being developed for window installation professionals and scheduled to launch in September. “It’s a 30-hour course,” she explained, “and a lot of work and effort has gone into it.

"Now all we need is a name,” she quipped as she previewed several possibilities for those in the marketing committee meeting.

The committee also learned that results of the association’s annual research report, authored by Ducker Research, should be imminent.

The association’s membership committee discussed a variety of programs and outreach efforts to non-members. As with almost every professional and all construction membership organization, the group’s membership numbers are down - but ever so slightly (less than five percent), a testament to the high value members see in such membership.
