ARCIA Partnership Program.
The past few months have seen the renewal of our annual Partnership Program, this is a very important source of funds for the Association, which makes it possible for us to undertake many of the tasks we do on behalf of the industry, plus it keeps our ticket prices to a reasonable level for our networking events.
This year saw Motorola Solutions, JVC-Kenwood, Radlink Communications, RFI, Tait, Zetron, Icom, Ace Communications, Harris Communications, Codan Radio, Omnitronics and GME all renew their partnership agreements, something we do sincerely appreciate. GMG Solutions opted to reduce their partnership contribution this year but we are very pleased they are still able to support us, plus we have also had Simoco and Metwide Communications come on board as partners. Unfortunately BAI Group and Benelec were not able to continue and we do sincerely thank them for their support and look forward to them remaining supporters of the industry in other roles.
As you may be aware, ARCIA under-writes the costs of the one-day Comms Connect conferences in Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane each year. As an association we feel it is important to bring relevant industry information to members and users in these locations as well. To help offset the drain on our members’ funds with this role we have developed a smaller sponsorship program to contribute to this important part of our role. So far this year Vicom and Spectrum Engineering have come on board and are sponsors of these events, please make sure you thank them (as well as our main partners) for supporting the Association and allowing us to offer extra services for industry and users.
If you would like to help with sponsoring the Perth and Brisbane events early in 2017 please contact a Committee Member or email the Association and ask for details.
