New Update


Computer and Media Society (CAMS), Madurai became the first association in

Confed-ITA to launch a monthly bulletin for its members. The bulletin was

launched at the annual general meeting (AGM) of the association held in Madurai

on June 9. Titled 'Winchester', the tabloid will be circulated among the members

free of cost and will inform the members about the association activities along

with other interesting stuff. Renganathan, Editor, Winchester said, “The

bulletin in print will have bi-lingual content and will be circulated among the

members absolutely free. The main aim of this bulletin is to keep our members

updated about the association's activities and introduction of any exclusive

product by the member. Apart from this, the bulletin will carry interviews of

key personalities in the IT business domain.

“This bulletin will also serve as a platform for the members and their

families to share their ideas. We believe this would bring the members and their

families together as one community. Other than this, it will also carry some

jokes and entertainment stuff,” Renganathan added.

The association has planned to conduct an expo in September this year and has

also rolled out a new set of regulations for their members relating to the

advertisements placed by the partners in the print media.


As per the new regulation, the members should not mention the price of the

product in the print media advertisements. However, if the product is advertised

with the price, then the members can avail a discount of 2.5 percent. Mainly,

the association has brought in the regulation to avoid any price confusion in

the minds of end-users.

After the incident of sales executive of SES duping the partners in Madurai

region, the association has asked for a statement of accounts from the

distributor and has pledged to be united in the face of the service tax issue.

G Ravikumar, President, CAMS, said that the association has even planned for

a get together and a family tour.

On the other hand, the association has increased its member strength from 62

to 85 and has plans to increase it further. A team under G Jegannathan, CEO,

Asian Computers and Vikas Daga, CEO, Vijay Trading has been formed to increase

the count. In an attempt to increase the number of members, the association has

planned to conduct vendor meetings in the city, which only members would be able

to attend.

CAMS also approved Confed-ITA's Soul Project unanimously after A Muthuswamy,

Secretary, Confed-ITA explained the project to the members in the gathering.
