ARCIA expands partnership program
The Australian Radio Communications Industry Association (ARCIA) has implemented changes to expand its partnership program and open it up to a wider range of participants, suppliers and associated industries.
Gone are the limitations on how many partners there could be in each partnership category — there are now no limits — and the categories have been rationalised from five down to three.
Incorporated in May 2007, ARCIA is a not-for-profit peak body that seeks to promote and foster the continued growth and success of the radiocommunications industry in Australia. Its membership base reflects a cross-section of the communications industry at all levels, including dealers, network operators, manufacturers and end users, as well as communications consultants.
The organisation is active in:
- training and education
- professional accreditation
- regulatory and spectrum consultations
- industry networking.
According to ARCIA’s newly published 2019–20 partnership prospectus, “Contingent with our aims for increasing membership and promotion of the Association, our vision requires support from our partnerships to fund the many plans in place for the improvement of the industry and those who are employed within it. These plans are essential for the growth and health of our industry. We now have a significant membership base spread across Australia and it continues to grow every year.
“This coming year we will be encouraging those organisations who provide support services to the wireless industry to become members and show support. This will include organisations that provide software or other indirect support products that help our industry to become more efficient.”
The benefits of becoming a partner of ARCIA include:
- high-level exposure at its industry networking dinners, reaching around 1000 people in total;
- exposure via regular industry newsletters;
- recognition as supporting the peak body for the wireless communications industry, especially in ARCIA’s discussions with government, regulators and the public safety sector;
- recognition at other industry events throughout each year.
