BICSI announces the launch of a renewed collaboration agreement with the Telecommunications Industry Assn. (TIA) 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 at TIA’s headquarters in Arlington, Va,. to discuss strategic direction and joint initiatives including development and promotion of environmentally friendly standards to the building industry.

The groups have agreed to cross-promote one another’s services, including certification and market intelligence programs, standards, case studies, and white papers. Marketing activities will include presence at one another’s tradeshows and outreach through their Web sites at www.bicsi.org and www.tiaonline.org and online mail. They will also continue to jointly promote the efforts of several sub-communities, including the Fiber Optics LAN Section.

“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,” said Edward J. Donelan, RCDD/NTS Specialist, President of BICSI. “The newly crafted twenty-seven 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.”

Both groups have been engaged in similar activities for a number of years, addressing their mutual interests in information communications technologies and trends, including standards, certifications, knowledge transfer and global technology advancement.

"BICSI and TIA are at similar stages in terms of addressing the needs of their respective membership communities,” said Grant E. Seiffert, president of TIA. “Our long-time collaboration has proven to be a solid foundation on which to build new joint initiatives.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
