Trade Ally Fall Session highlighted trade ally benefits

More than 80 trade allies attended the Trade Ally Fall Session on September 29. The half-day event featured a keynote address about energy-efficiency data and decision making by Richard Jett and Scott Broten, who are working with Existing Buildings on process improvements to enhance the trade ally experience. In addition, trade allies attended several breakout sessions, including:

  • “The custom process: A walk through Existing Buildings approvals,” presented by Angel Swanson, account manager
  • “Energy Trust in Washington,” presented by Kathleen Rienhardt-Waring, account manager
  • “Cool water, hot tech,” presented by Brian Watts, Rinnai
  • “Existing Buildings (re)orientation,” presented by Nick Dreves, trade ally coordinator

Following the keynote address, Jeff Schwartz and Nick Dreves provided program updates and a preview of 2016. Trade allies were also reminded of two important resources, Insider and cooperative marketing. Cooperative advertising funds are still available in 2015.
