AMHA 2014 Multi-State Convention on the Alabama Coast!
The 2014 Multi-State Convention was an overwhelming success with over 292 registered attendees from the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee at the Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach, AL. The large gathering of industry professionals featured the annual meetings and continuing education opportunities for each state, and both golfing and fishing tournaments stretching from Sunday, August 3rd to Tuesday, August 5th.
The convention kicked off on Sunday with each State holding their Board meetings and an SEC themed reception. The reception was well attended and signified the start of a lively convention. Monday morning gave attendees the opportunity to participate in any of three (3) events: the Multi-State Golf Tournament, Deep Sea Fishing Tournament, or a Cooking Demonstration. All three events were well attended and gave the attendees a day of relaxation, while enjoying the beautiful amenities of the Gulf Coast. Monday evening concluded with the Multi-State Dessert Extravaganza, which gave attendees from all four States an opportunity to network over dessert and coffee.
The Convention concluded on Tuesday evening with the Multi-State Convention Awards Banquet. This fantastic event featured Person of the Year awards from each state. David Brewer of Southern Homes was honored as Alabama's Person of the Year for 2014.
The event as a whole was successful with a total of 292 registered attendees over the three days of the Convention. We are looking forward to another successful Convention next year. Be sure to join us for next year's convention on August 1 thru 3, 2015, at Perdido Beach Resort, Orange Beach, AL.

Owning your own home
It's the ultimate American dream. In fact, buying a home is probably the most important purchase you'll make in your lifetime.
As housing costs continue to climb, home ownership is simply beyond the financial reach of a growing number of Americans. Increasingly, the need for more affordable and efficient homes is being met by today's manufactured homes. Manufactured Housing offers all the qualities and amenities you want at a price you can afford.
