Several optional events will take place at the American Architectural Manufacturers Association Fall Conference, Sept. 30-Oct. 3, including a reception at which suppliers can display their products, a World Vision-partnered philanthropic event at a local Title I school and more. Registration is now open for the conference, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines in Austin, Texas. Please note, separate registration is required for most optional events.

Supplier Product Display Reception
Conference participants are invited to view products and services during a dedicated Supplier Product Display Reception at the conference. This annual event is open to all registered attendees. The exhibitors, who are AAMA members and industry suppliers, will offer 90 minutes of display time in an informal networking setting from 5:30-7 p.m. on Oct. 1. This reception is an opportunity to meet with several suppliers at one time. Those interested in displaying their products or services should register and reserve a spot before Sept. 13.

World Vision Backpack Build
AAMA will once again partner with World Vision for the annual fall backpack build and delivery. Spouses attending the conference will be rolling up their sleeves for approximately two hours to fill backpacks with school supplies to equip under-privileged children with essential tools. This year, Bluebonnet Elementary Title I school, located about six miles from the conference location, has been chosen to receive the backpacks. After the backpack build, volunteers will visit the school and personally distribute the backpacks to the students. AAMA is committed to meeting a goal of 500 backpacks.

Optional Events
Other optional events at the conference include the Rich and Diane Walker Presidents Cup at Wolfdancer Golf Course, taking place Sept. 30. That same day, those registered for the conference also may choose to take part in an outdoor skills competition featuring a utility vehicle and zip line. This event is limited to 40 spaces. Finally, on Oct. 2, a backyard cookout will take place on site at the hotel at an additional fee. Cowboy hats and boots are encouraged, though not required.
