TIA Star Awards
In 2021, TIA launched an initiative to recognize and celebrate the contributions made to advancing TIA and the ICT industry by its member and participant companies and individual volunteers. With an automated system that measures member and participant company and individual engagement in TIA initiatives such as standards development, technology programs, and government advocacy, TIA counts the total points accumulated at the end of the year to determine the winners and top performers.
