The newly formed Technology Channel Association, which represents the communications industry’s indirect sales channel, announced its new management team and headquarters.
The association will be based in Princeton, N.J., at 191 Clarksville Road and can be reached by phone at +1 609 799 4900.
The headquarters management team includes Lynn McCullough and JoAnna Laskas as association managers; Danielle Barsuglia as association coordinator; Angela Cino as director of finance and administration; and Jeff Barnhart as executive advisor.
The staff is employed by CMA Association Management, which TCA has hired to run the day-to-day functions of the association. CMA Association Management is accredited by the Association Management Company Institute as a company that meets or exceeds the requirements of the ANSI (American National Standard Institution) Standard of service, quality and excellence in professional and trade association management.
TCA President Dany Bouchedid said with CMA’s help TCA is working on programs, such as health insurance, to rollout to members at the spring Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas. Other programs will be announced in the next 12-18 months, he said.
TCA was launched in August to represent – as the name implies – indirect channel organizations selling technology solutions.
Since its inaugural membership drive at The Fall 2008 Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Boston, TCA has gained the support of 33 partner members and nine suppliers.
