TAIT has been rated
high on elections, internal meetings and awareness programs. What do
you think, is the crucial part of these three?
Awareness programs are the
most crucial. With internal meetings, the plans are discussed, but
unless we make the members aware, it will not materialize. Activities
like seminars, new product launches, exhibitions and new initiatives,
like we did with the recent Microsoft genuine software keeps on
happening periodically. We make it a point to communicate with our
members on a regular basis, discussing about their problems and
Do you see that regular
business events helped TAIT to top the chart? Please elaborate.
Yes. In fact we also
organize stress management programs and financial programs in order
to improve logistics efficiently. We also make sure to have at least
one meeting with the family members of our association members in
order to help bond with them as well.
Besides other programs,
regular website updation was one of the important part of information
sharing. But most of the IT channel associations lack this. Do you
think that other associations should adopt it for activities
Now the information
sharing is moving towards Web. Everybody is online and it is
convenient to access information by checking the website. Even
government is encouraging more and more usage of websites for
government information and as such the habit is being developed. In
fact every organization should try and adopt this now.
What are the challenges
that you face as an association, and how are you responding to them?
Members welfare and growth
is the most important challenge in today's competitive scenario.
How our members can adapt to changing technologies and scenarios is
crucial for the association and various seminars, awareness programs,
exhibitions of new technologies and regular interaction with vendors
is what we intend to focus in times to come. We have also become a
member of MAIT, which will help in growth of our member and will also
help us get regular updates on the latest government policies. In
future, we also plan to form an advisory board which would only
consist of CEOs of top companies, which will help in sharing
information based on new products and distribution strategy.
Where do you see a room
for improvement in the regular functioning of TAIT?
Learning from mistakes and
improving is the key to success . Every activity demands better
improvement and aiming for the higher goals.
