CEDIASTRONG was born from the COVID-19 pandemic and was designed to serve as a rallying cry for our industry. Under the CEDIASTRONG banner, the association organized on a global scale virtual events, roundtable discussions and webinars to empower dealers with new tools to help them build skills and their businesses. To date, thousands of members have participated in CEDIASTRONG events and services.
As a next step, CEDIA is establishing a CEDIASTRONG Scholarship Fund with the intent to award annual education grants to up and coming home technology talent: high school graduates, community college and vocational school students, as well as displaced techs who are keen to build their skills and careers in the smart and connected home space.
With the CEDIASTRONG Scholarship Fund, we are eliminating financial barriers for students to take the plunge and begin to build their careers in the Custom Install space. CEDIASTRONG Scholarship grants will cover CEDIA Academy and Bootcamp tuition fees as well as supplemental expenses for certification testing and travel. The time is now to welcome young professionals to our industry. With millions of consumers now working from home, the need for reliable technology solutions has never been greater.
