Tampa, Fla.-based BICSI, the professional association supporting the information transport systems (ITS) industry with information, education, and knowledge assessment for individuals and companies, recently renewed the collaboration agreement with the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), Arlington, Va., in the ongoing effort to reach out and deploy new business systems that will benefit information transport systems (ITS) industry professionals. Leaders from the two groups recently met to discuss strategic direction and joint initiatives including development and promotion of environmentally friendly standards to the building industry.

“TIA is the cornerstone of the BICSI Outreach Program — a program specifically designed to collaborate with industry alliances in concert with the BICSI Strategic plan and the BICSI NxtGEN business plan,” says Edward J. Donelan, RCDD/NTS specialist and president of BICSI. “The newly crafted 27 points of mutual reciprocity between our associations will enhance BICSI and TIA members’ ability to deliver the best products to their customers through education, training, and knowledge assessment.”
