This year’s theme, “People. Profit. Planet.

“Today’s economy requires our strong commitment to both sound public policy and technology innovation,” said Frank Stewart, AABE President and Chief Operating Officer. “As our national policy encourages participation in our green economy, it is important to appreciate that industry is increasingly challenged to balance the needs of consumers and the impact to the environment in an ever changing business milieu.
