Industry Talking - Events to fill the social calendar

Australian Radio Communications Industry Association
Monday, 16 April, 2012

ARCIA attended the APCO Australasia conference on the Gold Coast in March where we attracted new members and presented on disaster planning and the need to coordinate plans to provide interoperability, particularly in remote areas where infrastructure is limited.

APCOA announced an affiliation with ARCIA, which will enable the industry to contribute to requests for technical comment on APCO proposals. This affiliation is part of a worldwide move to develop alliances between what have been seen to be competing technologies and organisations, where in fact they should be considered to be part of a global interoperation to continue the development of two-way radio and its ability to provide public safety communications.

By the time of publication, the inaugural Queensland ARCIA Industry dinner will have been held at the Victoria Park Golf Course and the preparations for this event will have ensured the success of the evening. The Queensland event is the most recent of the regional networking dinners following Sydney, Adelaide and Perth, which will all be regular entries on the ARCIA networking calendar along with the gala dinner in Melbourne.

These events provide an unequalled opportunity for the industry to meet not only socially but to experience a wider view of the industry and where it is going. The next event will be in Adelaide in September and this again promises to be an entertaining evening at the National Wine Centre, a tremendous venue.

Membership continues to grow and ARCIA welcomes recent new members: AusOptic International, ComTel Network Solutions, STI Engineering, TCQ Pty Ltd, CSE-ComSource, Rojone Pty Ltd, Vinci Technology, and the South Australian Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure along with John Pepper, a new individual member. They join the growing list of over 130 corporations, manufacturers, suppliers, small businesses, end-user organisations, individuals and students that have joined together to promote and develop the radio communications industry.
