This council is committed to providing innovative leadership to the controls distributors and our manufacturer partners with priorities on distributor profitability, open communications, expanding the distribution channel value proposition and educational opportunities.

We will improve the value Controls Distributors provide in the supply chain utilizing the four foundational pillars of HARDI, Advocacy, Benchmarking, Education, Networking, with a focus on our customers and a close working relationship with our suppliers.


All leadership positions are held for a term of 2 years. After the term, current committee members will identify possible replacements to the board from within the Supplier Membership. The current members will fill the role of nominating committee and present the possible candidates to the full membership for a vote.
