Distributor Center

CGNA Hosts Meeting

ST. LOUIS - Controls Group North America (CGNA) hosted its annual Fall Members Meeting in mid-September at the Hilton St. Louis Airport. Beginning with the CGNA board of directors meeting, the two-day conference 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. He explored the future of the controls distributor’s role in the mixed-use development of buildings and the subsequent affect of mixed-use development on the commercial and residential buildings market.

Leslie Hoyler, marketing administrator for CGNA, spoke on the shift in demographics, behaviors, and expectations in the 21st century workplace. She focused on the importance of distributor business owners planning ahead for the retirement of the Baby Boomer generation and, as a corollary, developing strategies to attract, retain, and develop the next generation of workers.

CGNA also introduced its newest member, Keith Sutton, of Cumberland Trading Co., Fayetteville, N.C.
