CDA Named North Coast Builders Exchange “Member of the Month” for November 2006
(For Immediate Release)
(Santa Rosa, CA) – November 6, 2006 – Santa Rosa based Concept Development Associates, Inc. (CDA) has been selected as NCBE’s “Member of the Month” for November. The award is presented to North Coast Builders Exchange members who demonstrate extraordinary commitment to their community and is approved by the full Board of Directors.
Concept Development Associates, Inc. was founded in 1986 in Santa Rosa by Kenn Foote and James McCracken, as Foote/McCracken Associates. McCracken left the company in 1992 and the name was subsequently changed to fit future aspirations of the business.
The company specializes in the design of business and product image, providing architectural graphics and ‘wayfinding’ signage systems for many major facilities in Sonoma and Marin Counties, which include Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa, Santa Rosa Junior College, Fireman’s Fund, and the Buck Center. In addition, they have also handled award-winning subdivision identification signage projects for many major subdivisions and developers in Sonoma and Napa Counties.
The agency services clients throughout Northern California, as well as developing and distributing products worldwide. CDA is a family-run business – Foote’s sons are in the business. Sean Foote is Vice President in charge of design services, and Tim Foote over-sees production of architectural graphics and product development. Both Sean and Tim have grown with the business, and have plans of “taking it to the next level” with Kenn.
Foote has been volunteering in the community for over 20 years. His favorite aspect of being active is the “great feeling of giving back” to Santa Rosa and Sonoma County, doing so through various service clubs such as the Kiwanis Club (past president) and the Santa Rosa Rotary.
As a graduate of Sonoma State University, he has served on the SSU Alumni Board of Directors as President of the Board, Foote has also served on the Board of Directors for Sonoma County Family YMCA for over fifteen years.
CDA staff participates regularly in Rebuilding Together’s Annual Work Day, the YMCA’s Outreach Golf Tournament, and the Santa Rosa Memorial Golf Tournament fundraisers, as well as the Santa Rosa Rose Parade and the Regional Special Olympics.
NCBE’s Board congratulates Kenn and CDA on setting the standard for community involvement.
