The 2014 Community Charities Program recently opened for nominations. Since 1993, the CCTA has contributed more than $281,000 to charitable organizations in the region. The charities are nominated by the Active Members and then reviewed by the members of the Board of Directors who make the final selection. Nominations for this year's program must be submitted by May 15, 2014. Over the years, the grants have ranged between $750 and $1,000 each. Active Members are urged to use the presentation of the checks to their nominated charities to promote their companies, the association, and the cable television industry in the Caribbean.

Did You Know...

... that Montego Bay is the capital of St. James parish, located on the northwest side of the island of Jamaica? Frequently called Mobay, the city is situated on the ocean and surrounded by majestic hills. The city has its own airport, Sangster International Airport (MBJ). Don't make the mistake of flying into Kingston, because then you'll have to rent a car and drive for hours before glimpsing enchanting Montego Bay.
