The Texas Communications Expo, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation, was chartered in 1995 to engage in charitable, educational, scientific, civil and similar purposes including promotion, advancement, development and dissemination of knowledge and information relating to the communications industry.
The primary means of fund raising is accomplished through the annual EXPO and PSAM.
The EXPO is held each year in early April and provides vendors from across the nation and around the world an opportunity to present their products and services to operating companies engaged in the business of providing telecommunication services to end users. In addition to the product displays, vendors can perform training seminars for their products. Certificates of attendance are provided to all seminar participants.
PSAM, Plant Superintendents Annual Meeting, is held in late July and provides managers and directors of telecommunications companies an opportunity to preview the latest in technology and innovations prior to presenting to the company’s standards committee.
The Texas Communications Expo, Inc. operates under the direction of a sixteen member Board who are volunteers from throughout the communications industry. Eight members are from operating companies while the other eight are from the vendor community.
In addition to the Board of Directors, there are numerous volunteers who serve on committees aiding EXPO and PSAM. The volunteers provide priceless assistance and are an integral part of the shows success.
Monies collected are donated to communications organizations that provide scholarships to promote education within the industry. Additionally, contributions are made to non-profit organizations to assist with training and education of craft and management personnel.
The Texas Communications Expo, Inc. is very proud of its “Donation to Revenue” ratio. The Board of Director’s is delighted with their accomplishments since TCEI’s inception and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the years.
