CCTA 2014 Annual Meeting Another Resounding Success (Winter 2014)

What a way to end January! If you were lucky enough to attend the CCTA's 2014 Annual Meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico, AND avoid the record-setting U.S. blizzard, then you can be considered a strategic and planning genius! You were one of the 381 wise individuals who traveled to the Caribbean from January 27 to 29 to participate in the CCTA's 31st Annual Meeting, which was the second largest in the organization's history. Way to go!

From beginning to end, the "Caribbean Show" was crammed with top-notch speakers, exhibitions, and social events designed for networking. There were 183 companies or organizations in attendance, representing 28 distinct nations or jurisdictions in North America, South America, Europe and the Caribbean. The vibe was upbeat and non-stop, just like the lively Puerto Rican salsa that played throughout the meeting.

The only sad moment came during the Annual Membership Meeting, when it was announced that Bill Ewing, Managing Director of The Cable St. Kitts, was retiring from the CCTA Board of Directors. After Bill's farewell comments, Alan Smith of Bermuda CableVision said, "There isn't a dry eye in the house", and that was exactly right.
