AHFA helps member companies compete in the global marketplace by offering presidents and chief executives timely communications on key issues affecting the economy and the industry.
AHFA created the first education program dedicated specifically to the needs and interests of executive leadership within our industry. Although other entities have tried to duplicate the Annual Meeting and CEO Conference, AHFA’s November event remains the industry’s only non-commercial program addressing topics such as business strategy, economic analysis, emerging consumer trends and political analysis. Executives have also come to value the Annual Meeting for the opportunity it provides to step back from the rapid pace of daily operations and network with their industry peers.
In addition, as the official voice of the home furnishings industry before legislative and regulatory officials, AHFA offers presidents and CEOs a direct link to important compliance information and regulatory updates long before they reach the industry trade press through its Member Bulletins.
Corporate leaders also have the opportunity for political engagement through AHFA to strengthen our industry’s impact in Washington, D.C., and around the country. Executives who are willing to make Congressional contacts in their district or in Washington can help AHFA build valuable relationships with lawmakers and advance pro-industry policies.
Finally, AHFA provides easy access to a variety of industry reports on the general business environment and the outlook for the industry.
