The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has named Diana Hanson its new regulatory affairs manager. Hanson comes to AAMA with association experience as a founding member of the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA).

While with NADRA, she presented at International Code Council hearings, which will aid her in her codes-related work for AAMA. Hanson also has experience in the legal field, previously working as both a paralegal and technical writer.

“We are very fortunate to have Diana join AAMA in the role of regulatory affairs manager,” says Rich Walker, AAMA’s president and CEO. “She will be a valuable asset of the association and our members, bringing with her a wealth of code-related knowledge, technical writing and editing, and association experience. Her legal background will also serve us well in the regulatory affairs and energy advocate arenas, and we are pleased to welcome her to AAMA.”

Hanson operates from her home in Idaho and will participate in the upcoming AAMA Fall Conference in Cambridge, Md., scheduled for October 18-21.
