ROCKVILLE, Md. - The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will be hosting Newt Gingrich at the opening session of MCAA 2009 in Scottsdale, Ariz., March 1-5. Former house speaker, historian, author, and conservationist, Gingrich will share his insights and perspectives on America’s pressing challenges.

According to MCAA, the presentation will be based on reasoned, thought-provoking ideas drawn from his study of the natural world, the biological revolution’s impact on health, the state of information systems, the effect of mass communications, the infrastructure and implementation of international finance, the American political system, the benefits of lean manufacturing, and the challenge of military, terrorist, and international crime threats. He intends to demonstrate how lessons learned in one discipline can be applied to another and how all fields of study share a common connection to information technology.
