What was your first job as a journalist?

Sports reporter, Hickory Daily Record, Hickory, N.C.

Yes, but never for work.

How is social media changing news?

Social media is making news personal and sharable, which encourages people to become immersed in stories.

Pella Local Branches Earn Angie’s List Super Service Award — Select sales branches for Pella Corporation have earned the Angie's List Super Service Award in 12 different markets. The 12 regional branches receiving the award this year are located in: * Albany, N.Y. * Boston, Mass. * Dayton, Ohio * Des Moines, Iowa * Fort Wayne, Ind. * Indianapolis, Ind.

FenestrationAssociate: I Passed! — If you follow DWM on social media (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram), you probably noticed that I was celebrating a little bit last week . And with good reason. You see, I passed my FenestrationAssociate examination at the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) National Conference in Huntington Beach, Calif.

AAMA, thinkstep to Work Together on Sustainability Issues — The glass and fenestration industries have grappled with the implications of product category rules (PCRs), life cycle assessments (LCAs) and environmental product declarations (EPDs) for several years now. But a big question remains - how do they affect the bottom line?

At the AAMA Conference, Marketing Is on the Menu — The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) might be the leading code-making body for fenestration products in the U.S., but it's also deeply invested in ensuring that its member companies promote their products effectively. Chip Gentry tells AAMA National Conference attendees how to plug leaks on lawsuits.

AAMA Conference Opens with an Eye on the Future — Growth and change were the buzzwords for the 79th national conference of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), which opened on Monday in Huntington Beach, Calif. Since October, nine new companies have joined AAMA, according to president Richard Walker, and the association has welcomed 14 new members and four technical consultants during that time.

Why “Green” Might Turn Off Home Buyers — Does the language of "green building" really connect with home buyers? That was the focus of "Make It Matter! How to Sell When 'Green' Doesn't Mean 'Go,' " a session at the recent Greenbuild conference in Washington, D.C.

FenestrationAssociate Round 4: Codes and More — A new year and a big move to a new office. A week in Las Vegas for the International Builders' Show, one of the largest trade shows in the world. A massive snowstorm. Two issues of the magazine that had to be wrapped up in about two weeks.

FenestrationAssociate Round 3: Sealants, Hardware and More — It might be the hectic holiday season, but that hasn't slowed down my quest to earn a FenestrationAssociate certificate. I've written about my first dive into the professional certification program, and most recently I updated you on Round 2. I've now moved on to the third group of courses.

FenestrationAssociate Round 2: Aluminum, Vinyl and More — A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about my first dive into the FenestrationAssociate coursework. Group 1 was pretty challenging. It covered window selection, glass, performance standards for doors and windows, and special challenges such as sound abatement, wind-borne debris and blast mitigation. Group 2 was shorter, but still interesting.
