Benefits of TIA Membership

We encourage you to find out how TIA can help you! Through TIA's initiatives in government affairs, exciting new technology areas, important standards, networking events, market intelligence and branding opportunities, you'll discover a wealth of resources available to you as a TIA member.

TIA GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS, POLICY & ADVOCACY INITIATIVES PROVIDE ACCESS AND INFLUENCE: You need to be at the table in TIA-coordinated, frequent and effective dialog between government and industry on the fast-moving global policy implications of technological advances, convergence, and communications ecosystem shifts. TIA helps protect members from potentially harmful regulation with the power of strength in numbers as we advocate for industry's interests. TIA also filters the relevant, crucial information you need to know about the numerous issues that affect your business.

TIA's annual Policy Innovation Agenda is outlined in the short-read Playbook and the more in-depth Innovation Agenda. TIA Manufacturer and Supplier members are invited to join TIA Policy Committees and Divisions.

TIA TECHNOLOGY AND STANDARDS PROTECT AND PROMOTE YOUR INTERESTS: Your company's products need the backing and support of a respected standards process, which TIA offers through our many ANSI-accredited standards in the information and communications technology arena. Even as the industry moves toward open-source, software-driven networks and data centers, there is a necessity to ensure interoperability across industries and globally - and TIA membership provides a path toward this goal.

TIA has a global reach to international standards bodies, driving global market development, and promotes standards extensively through IHS Global (which TIA members receive at a 25% discount). Find out more about TIA's engineering committee work and strategic technology initiatives in areas such as Internet of Things, Data Centers, Cabling, Public Safety and Mobile Devices.

TIA NETWORKING AND INTELLIGENCE WORK TO ADVANCE YOUR BUSINESS: Take advantage of business development and branding opportunities through TIA! Members are encouraged to participate as speakers, sponsors and attendees in events including TIA's annual Conference on the Network of the Future, as well as the TIA Spring Policy Summit, and other networking events such as workshops, roundtables and conferences. With the annual TIA Market Review and Forecast, members receive in-depth research and analysis needed to compete globally.

For outstanding branding opportunities, turn to TIA's online video network, TIA NOW, producer of documentaries, executive interviews, and expert industry panels on a variety of relevant topics such as 5G networks, Internet of Things, the Changing Value Chain, Broadband and Spectrum, and much more.

Now available on the TIA website, the Solution Sets presentation provides you with details about important activities and their impact on your business, as well as key upcoming dates, and their implications.

On TIA NOW, John Jacobs, Vice President, Market Intelligence & Research at TIA (pictured at left) explains how these solution sets apply to ICT businesses as our industry continues to change and evolve.

Members also receive informative newsletters including TIA Member Connect, Washington Weekly Advance, Policy Update and others, depending on member interest and business area.
