Conference Materials Format & SugarSync
AAMA is now utilizing the free SugarSync sharing system to share/sync conference files with attendees prior to the event. This service will be used in lieu of the USBs that are typically distributed to attendees upon check-in at the registration desk. Utilizing the SugarSync sharing system will enable AAMA staff to provide up-to-date information to attendees and the details can be downloaded to a variety of devices for future use.

Additionally, the printed conference packets will no longer be provided. Reducing the amount of printed materials used at AAMA events is a part of efforts to become more environmentally friendly in our practices as an association.

Note that the electronic conference packet file and agendas will continue to be accessible here.

If you have any questions or need assistance with the online registration process, please email Kaydeen Laird or call (847) 303-5859 ext. 223. (back to top)


  • Several of the sessions I attended [during the conference] were excellent with information that allows our company to focus on the upcoming issues that we will face. By attending it allows us to not be blindsided by market changes we did not know about.

  • My company has been an AAMA member continuously for nearly 40 years. Perhaps the greatest value of AAMA membership lies in the opportunity to network one-on-one [during AAMA conferences]. In general, AAMA is very responsive to the needs of the industry, addressing important issues and pursuing solutions to problems. Everyone has an equal voice, a time to be heard and their viewpoint seriously considered.

    Is it justified? Absolutely! I can honestly say there has never been a time when I have questioned the value of our investment of time and dollars in AAMA.

  • [AAMA conferences are] very useful for everything concerning green and energy performance for the window industry.

  • As always, the AAMA meetings are a great place to network.

  • I am new to this industry, and I’ve belonged to a number of other industry associations over the years and this one was one of the most organized and content rich conferences I have ever attended. I found the sessions were professionally run and the attendees to be passionate with their participation and ideas.

    Director of Marketing
  • In the last five years, we started to get involved in AAMA attending both National [conferences] and Regional meetings. AMSCO Windows has found that being involved has been very beneficial in both marketing and product development. The information provided by AAMA has helped our business. I feel we are a stronger company because of the AAMA relationship.

  • VEKA has been a member of AAMA since 1984. The depth of technical knowledge and positive involvement in related issues is a key reason that we consider our AAMA affiliation to be beneficial. In particular, the vinyl profile certification program is extremely important.

    Being my company’s representative at AAMA [conferences] for the last 11 years has also been a tremendous benefit to me personally. I am able to discuss technical issues with my peers and have easy access to the vendors, their knowledge and product lines.

    Kevin Seiling

    Vice President of Engineering & New Business Development
  • As a company, Quanex aspires to be a leader in our industry. AAMA sponsorships have always been a very visible testament to Quanex’ support of our customers/ and manufacturers, who are the heart and soul of the good work that AAMA is doing. Support of AAMA events that have the best interest of our industry in mind is something that Quanex intends to stand behind both now and into the future.

  • Our company has been a member for almost 30 years. We have dedicated our resources to AAMA because we believe by being involved in standards writing, lobbying, and ensuring our window product is installed properly, we can grow and protect our industry.

    Our company has benefited not only by participating in the writing and revising of standards that govern our industry, but also by expanding and strengthening contacts with industry vendors and manufacturers at AAMA conferences.

    Mike Kinard
    Kinro, Inc.
    Vice President of Engineering and Marketing
  • AAMA conferences represent one of the best opportunities to be able to interact with a broad base of the fenestration industry, including various component suppliers, equipment suppliers, manufacturers, laboratories, industry stakeholders, etc.
