During this already active hurricane season, the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host a webinar about lessons learned from 2017’s Hurricane Irma, which primarily impacted Florida. Chris Matthews, vice president and senior consultant of GCI Consultants, will speak about glazing system performance during Hurricane Irma.

Observations from hundreds of inspections conducted from the Northeast to the Southeast to the Southwest of Florida will be shared. Register now for “Hurricane Irma | Lessons Learned,” which will take place at 11:30 a.m. EST on Thursday, September 27. The webinar is open to the public.

“The takeaways from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma are even more important now in the midst of another storm season,” says Dean Ruark, president of the AAMA Southeast Region and director of product management at PGT Innovations. “We are committed to getting the latest possible information out to our membership about how to best prepare in the future.”

“AAMA knows hurricane preparedness is a critical issue to those in the industry,” adds Janice Yglesias, AAMA’s executive vice president. “Our webinar series seeks to address these topics and share important information like what Chris has to say about what was learned in Florida during Hurricane Irma.”
