Know the Score

The decisions made on Capitol Hill, by regulatory agencies, and in state capitals can have a profound effect on how appliances are made, maintained and sold. Appliance manufacturers that do not have a strategy in place to influence policy and manage its impact could find themselves at a disadvantage and end up on the losing end. AHAM’s 2019 Annual Meeting, Know the Score, will help manufacturers rise to the challenge of influencing and analyzing public policy to give their company an edge. AHAM has assembled a top-notch lineup of speakers on policy, analytics, retail and the consumer experience to help manufacturers make the plays that drive their policy strategies across the goal line.
