San Antonio Suits Conference First-Timers
 

The American Lighting Assn. gathered key industry players Sept. 9-11 for the 2007 edition of its annual conference, held at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort in San Antonio. First-timers jumped right in, taking advantage of all the three-day affair had to offer:

“The timing worked out this year, and we thought that since we want to stay ahead of the game, [conference] would be a great avenue to help us do it. Progress Lighting hosted me, and they made sure I had a good time. Meeting people, networking, informative classes—it was all fantastic.”

“The experience is extremely motivational. The sharing of information, trends, experiences, successes and failures allows everyone to come out ahead.”

“As an upstart lighting showroom, we felt it was important to go [to conference] this year to network with our peers and learn ways to better our practices. The vendor booths also gave me the chance

to talk to the key decision makers at the manufacturer level from a couple of the lines we’d like to take on.”

ALA PAC Update

Thanks to those members who donated generously, ALA took in more than $13,000 in support of its Political Action Committee (PAC) during September’s annual conference. To date, the committee has raised $33,000, 85 percent of its $40,000 goal for 2007. Funds raised support lighting industry champions on Capitol Hill.
