August is CEA Member Appreciation Month

Gary Shapiro, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™

At CEA, we’re fortunate to have the support of more than 2,000 companies big and small, domestic and international, seasoned and startups. We work hard to provide a platform for companies across the industry to display their latest innovations at the International CES® every January. But CEA’s industry involvement is a year-round endeavor, and we rely on support from our members at every turn – from legislative advocacy in Washington to industry promotions across the country. So, we’ve designated August Member Appreciation Month and plan spend the next four weeks demonstrating our appreciation of you, our members, and highlighting all that CEA can do for you.
Week 1: CEA’s Benefit Highlights and Volunteer Groups:  CEA member benefits include access to educational webinars, perks at CES and top division and council incentives. Our division and council volunteers provide invaluable direction, goal setting and governance for our industry. You can get involved by checking out our volunteer groups or participating in this week’s contest to win a $100 AmEx gift card by submitting a selfie of you and your company.

Week 2: CEA’s Top-Rated Market Research: CEA’s studies are supported by more than 90 years of historical data, making our research the most comprehensive in the industry. We carefully craft all of our studies with our members in mind, such as our U.S. Consumer Sales and Forecast reports, CE Ownership and Market Potential Studies and Black Friday Recaps.

Week 3: Your Voice Through Government Affairs:  From lobbying on Capitol Hill to participating in CEA’s grassroots Phone2Action campaigns, you can influence the direction of this industry. We are here to listen to your policy priorities.
Week 4: CEA Loves Startups: Startups are key players in the health of the tech industry. CEA has more than 300 vibrant startup members, who help provide the spark at CES and contribute innovative perspectives here at CEA. We want to provide every avenue possible for our startups to make their dreams come true through CEA’s startup membership.
We rely on all of you for innovation, creativity, hard work, and inspiration. And you can follow CEA on social media to keep up with August’s activities, contests and initiatives to celebrate Member Appreciation Month.

Thank you, CEA members, for your continued support.

CEA, President & CEO
