On June 5, Tampa, Fla.-based BICSI and Washington D.C.-based Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) signed an honorary and friendship agreement intended to promote further growth of the telecommunications industry. The agreement includes maintaining a regular exchange of information and considering possible cooperative activities between the two associations.

This agreement marks the second partnership BICSI has joined within the last 18 months — the first was signed with InfoComm International, the trade association of the professional audiovisual and information communications industries.
