During the AAMA 2014 Fall Conference, volunteers rolled up their sleeves and filled backpacks with school supplies to benefit children at a Title I elementary school in the Denver area. A total of 500 backpacks were filled and distributed during the event.
The North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS) - AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440 - was developed to harmonize requirements and facilitate trade with our northern neighbor. There remain some differences in requirements, however, owing primarily to the relative severity of the Canadian climate.
AAMA's Western Region members will be meeting in Costa Mesa, CA on October 14-15 at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa Hotel. Registration is open until October 7. A golf tournament, several speakers and a unique tour of a high-performance, green-focused home await event participants in California.
The renewal process for AAMA Corporate Members will begin in early November.
Mike Hamand entered the industry in 2005 after spending 22 years in appliances. He now works at Pella and today he talks about the value of communicating with supplier partners.
While AAMA conferences are widely known for a demanding three-day schedule with a full slate of marketing and technical output, there are frequent opportunities to participate in team-building philanthropy and networking. AAMA's 2014 Fall Conference in Denver, CO, proved this to be true, as we heard from many members who have been busy donating their time and resources to make positive changes around them.
