Chicagoland Communication Technologies Forum

CTF logoThe Communication Technologies Forum was created to bring together all disciplines within the voice and data communications fields in a venue where they can network, be informed and have quality education.

As a member of the CTF, you will benefit from leading edge information via seminars, printed materials and workshops on new products, services and installation methods.  There will be several opportunities throughout the year to network with your colleagues in social and meeting enviroments, to share experiences and learn from others.  We intend to work closely with national and local regulatory agencies to influence codes and standards to meet your needs.  As a member of the CTF, you will have input into these changes.

So who should belong to the CTF?
Anyone who manufactures, sells, installs, works with, or plans to work with Voice and Data products, including manufacturers, agents, distributors, engineers, contractors, service providers, and others.  If your company is currently a member of the Electric Association, any employee can join the CTF by completing a regular member form and sending it with $75.00 for the annual dues to the E.A. office.  For $215.00 an E.A. corporate member can sign-up an unlimited number of employees as CTF members. There is no limit to the number of people from your company who can become members.

For companies not currently members of the Electric Association, the annual corporate membership fee is $395.00.  To join as an individual, annual dues are $195. Corporate members can register an unlimited number of employees as CTF members.
