ST. LOUIS, MO, September 13, 2007−Controls Group North America hosted their annual Fall Members Meeting September 13th-September 15th at the Hilton St. Louis Airport. The meeting commenced with the CGNA Board of Directors Meeting, followed by a general session and semi-annual committee meetings.

The two-day meeting brought together over 40 distributor Members to address specific business issues and chart the course of action for the upcoming year. Mike Sackett, Executive Director of CGNA, presented material on the Smart Growth urban planning phenomena, especially as it pertains to CGNA’s integration and building automation distributors. Mike explored the future of the controls distributor’s role in the mixed-use development of buildings and the subsequent impact of mixed-use development on the commercial and residential buildings market.

Control Solutions, Inc Leslie Hoyler, Marketing Administrator for CGNA, spoke on the shift in demographics, behaviors and expectations in the 21st century workplace.
