Breaking with tradition, no individual will be presented the CTAM Chairman's Award. Instead, show chairman Joe Rooney is presenting the honor to the nation's CTAM chapters.
Local executives, who volunteer their time to run chapters, are being honored for their "exceptional efforts to engage and educate members about the industry and the marketing of its products and services," according to CTAM.
The organization has 15 chapters: a dozen in the U.S., and one each in the Caribbean, Europe and Canada.
"The educational and networking opportunities the chapters afford CTAM members in regional and local markets are a hidden jewel in CTAM's portfolio of resources, tools and ideas that help to advance the cable business," said Rooney in a prepared statement. "The volunteers in the chapters richly deserve this recognition."
The award will be presented during the closing general session in Boston on Nov. 11.
