Unless there is a side interest in building controls software, event scheduling, CMMS (and their integration), I don't think this event is for me. Perhaps a virtual discussion on those topics sometime? 214-291-8096 "Birchy"

Hey James, thanks for checking this out. I can put you in touch with our Building Management Supervisor. Perhaps you and John Sharpe might want to talk shop with him on the items you listed above? Have a great weekend! James Bentley
