Cotter Assumes Leadership of AEA
(December, 2017) TCATA CEO David Cotter recently assumed the chairmanship of the Association Education Alliance (AEA) during their recent meeting in Tucson, Arizona. AEA is a group of trade associations that meet annually to share ideas and develop common programs for the good of each Association's members. The group was formed in 1991 by several associations that primarily represent distributors, and has grown to 43 members. AEA developed and continues to sponsor the popular University of Innovative Distribution (UID).
"Of all the meetings I attend, AEA ranks as one of the most valuable," Mr. Cotter stated. "The sharing of ideas on everything from new programs and services, speakers and hotels, and learning how other associations deal with similar and issues has been of tremendous value to me in leading TCATA," he went on to say.
