“In today’s
uncertain economy, it is especially imperative for fenestration companies to
seek out new ways to separate themselves from the competition and provide
innovative products that meet their customers’ needs,” says Rich Walker, AAMA
president and CEO. “The panel discussion is an excellent opportunity to hear
from a few of AAMA’s own thought leaders about their experiences in advancing
the fenestration industry.”

Also during the annual conference, Dr. Esmael Adibi, director of the A. Gary
Anderson Center for Economic Research at Chapman University, will discuss the
role of monetary and fiscal policies affecting the national economy,
specifically focusing on the European debt crisis, job and residential housing
market outlook, the future of interest rates, as well as the commercial real
estate market.

Two additional national conferences and two regional meetings are planned for
2013. AAMA’s complete 2013 schedule of events includes:

the full spectrum of framing materials sold into both the commercial and
