Connecting Connection Communities

Our October theme is the topic on my mind because I have been in dialog with several in the industry about our event at this year's AHR Expo "Why we need to be part of several Connection Communities?" One of our Education Sessions, Dallas AHR Expo 2013.

Over the last several years organizations and groups have been extremely successful in connecting our industry. The name “Connection Communities” has been attached to the purpose and function these organizations provide. I invite you to join us to learn about existing connection communities, and educate yourself to the advantage of being part of various communities.

We started our first education session at Dallas AHR Expo in 2000, and in this summary of our first year I stated, "The Automated Buildings Industry is a small tightly controlled community and is generally extremely fragmented and difficult to reach. Our involvement in The State of the Art Building Automation session at the AHREXPO 2000 helped us both inform and be informed about the rapid web growth as well as the exciting topics of evolving communication standards."

This 14th year's session has a similar message but our industry has grown immensely, control by a few has shifted to many, and communication standards have greatly evolved and their respective connection communities have grown extremely large. Connection to the cloud is no longer just buzz, but a reality and a necessity.

This has created a very different industry in which the ability to interact and change are key requirements of all. Our Free education session in Dallas will open dialog on this change  Click here for a sneak preview.

Our October content provides insight to several connection communities existing and evolving and their interactions with each other and our industry. Be sure to read our industry interviews and Andy McMillan's column A Vision for Connection Communities from several of these communities. We hope to hear more from other connection communities in our issues leading to AHR Expo Dallas.

As always this new issue is a nest of great articles, columns, reviews, new products, interviews and of course the steady stream of news depicting our rapidly evolution of "Connected Communities"
