Marking a new era for members BICSI has revamped its logo. The not-for-profit association serving the information transport systems industry unveiled the new logo and corporate image at its 2005 winter conference in Orlando, USA. The move was made in response to the changing telecommunications industry and includes a new tagline — "advancing information transport systems", which replaces "a telecommunications association". The new logo will begin appearing on new BICSI materials and will be phased in as manuals and other publications are updated. “For 30 years, BICSI has been called a telecommunications association, but times have changed,” says BICSI president Russ Oliver, who is also a RCDD/NTS specialist. "BICSI is not just telecommunications any more. We are much, much more," he adds. BICSI has shifted its focus from telecommunications to encompass more due to the convergence and the increased use of Internet protocol (IP) in many buildings. This means that the systems and infrastructure designed and installed by BICSI members, installers, and technicians transport all types of information. This information can be audio, video, voice, data, electronic safety and security, environmental and building controls. So BICSI has decided to serve the wider information transport systems (ITS) industry. BICSI has also adopted a new vision statement — “BICSI is the worldwide preeminent source of information, education, and knowledge assessment for the constantly evolving ITS industry.” BICSI’s new mission is to lead the ITS industry with excellence in publications, education, and knowledge assessment, advance its members’ ability to deliver the highest quality products and services, as well as provide its members with opportunities for continuous improvement and enhanced professional stature. The move also follows news that ITP Events has announced that it will organise BICSI’s Middle East conference for the next three years with Network Middle East the official publication for the event. The BICSI Middle East & Africa 2005 District Conference, the only event of its kind in Middle East and Africa, will be held on June 12-13 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The conference will draw visitors from across the region and presents an opportunity to learn more about the developments in the information transport systems industry, to hear excellent presentations and to earn continuing education credits (CECs). This is the fourth conference offered in the Middle East & Africa by BICSI, the not-for-profit association serving the information transport systems industry. With speakers, who are well-respected professionals representing diverse companies and various aspects of the industry, from Middle East, Africa, Europe and the Americas participating, the conference is set to give attendees a unique perspective on the future shape of the global information transport systems industry. Conference sessions will provide generic technical information that is timely, unbiased and relevant to the Middle East & Africa marketplace. Open to BICSI members and non-members, this event encompasses the latest in voice, data, and video technology in commercial and residential buildings. Industry professionals will present topics related to information transport systems such as fibre versus copper, wireless, Gigabit Ethernet and beyond, electronic safety and security, environmental and building controls, international standards that define activity within the industry and emerging technologies.
