At the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 80th Annual Conference, the association’s membership ratified the 2017 Board of Directors.
Mike DeSoto (MI Windows and Doors) is the new Chairman of the Board, and Donnie Hunter (Kawneer) took on the role of Vice Chairman. Carl Troiano (Trojan Powder Coatings) accepted Hunter’s previous Board position as an architectural representative.
“As Chairman of the AAMA Board of Directors, I will focus on three key areas to better serve our members,” said DeSoto.
“First, refining the national conference schedule to guarantee a balance of professional education, networking, and maintenance of the consensus based standards and certification programs; Second, further development of the InstallationMasters and FenestrationMasters courses, which help our member companies capitalize on a growing market. Third, building alliances with other industry organizations to ensure we are always communicating with a science-based message.” DeSoto concluded.
