The 2022 AD Electrical North American Meeting between Sept. 19-21 brought together AD members and suppliers from the U.S., Canada and Mexico to “connect, celebrate their recent successes, and collaborate on opportunities for mutual growth,” independent distributor organization AD said.

AD said the theme for the meeting and AD’s 2022-23 meeting season is “What’s Next,” a call for AD members and supplier partners to “embrace new ideas and anticipate the future of their companies.”

During the meeting — which was held in Aurora, Colorado — divisional leaders shared financial updates that reflected the growth of members and supplier partners. Across AD’s three Electrical divisions in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, sales by AD Electrical members in 2022 are forecasted to increase by 33%, and member purchases from AD suppliers are expected to increase by 67%, AD said.

“It is an honor to work with you (our members) to execute on the programs and initiatives that help us grow together,” said Marisol Fernandez, President of AD Electrical & Industrial Business Unit, during the U.S. member business meeting. “We are committed to the continued financial success of the AD community, enhancing the AD network experiences moving forward, and helping our members and suppliers leverage the full scale of AD’s available resources.”

AD Electrical-Canada forecasts that member purchases from AD suppliers will increase 11% in 2022, and AD Electrical-Mexico forecasts 44% growth of member purchases from AD suppliers.

The North American Meeting also included a reception for AD’s Women’s Network Group, which “helps members make connections, share industry insights on leadership, and work together to attract and retain diverse talent,” according to AD.
