CEDIA MembershipIf you're reading this, you likely work in the “CEDIA Channel” – the home technology industry. 

But to be truly part of the CEDIA Channel, you must be part of CEDIA. Here’s why. 

CEDIA is Advocacy 

CEDIA works round the clock to advocate for its members to designers, architects, and builders. It also champions integrators to homeowners to educate them about the need for professional integration. As more regulation is introduced that impacts the channel, CEDIA works tirelessly to protect the industry’s interests before governmental bodies. Our work, and that of our dedicated volunteers, helps ensure your business can remain open to providing the best products and services to your customers and clients.  

CEDIA is Connection 

As the only global association for the home technology industry, CEDIA connects tens of thousands of members to each other in person and online. Just as importantly, it connects businesses to talented technicians and promotes the industry to those entering the workforce. Connection is the key to a thriving industry that continues to grow and provide new opportunities for your business.  

CEDIA is Education 

CEDIA develops content to share knowledge and raise the bar for industry standards. As the only globally recognized certifications in the industry, CEDIA credentials upskill employees, help retain talent, and increases the credibility of the industry. Certification is an excellent way to provide tangible evidence that your business is up to date on the latest best practices and remains abreast of such a quickly changing industry.  

CEDIA is You 

The 30,000 professionals who are part of CEDIA are supporting the industry that supports them. To do the most impactful work, CEDIA needs the entire industry to join together by joining its industry association.  

When asked to join an association, people often ask, “What’s in it for me?” In this very collaborative industry, the better question is “What’s in it for us?” By being part of your association, you help raise, mature, and enhance the custom integration industry. Your voice shapes the excellence of the industry you’ve grown (or intend to grow) a career in. 

While you focus on your business, CEDIA is focused on improving the industry through Advocacy, Connection, and Education.

As a member of CEDIA, you will truly be part of the CEDIA Channel. To join visit cedia.net/join or see us at the CEDIA booth (2H600) at ISE 2023. To renew your membership, visit cedia.net/renew.
