Many Active Members of the Caribbean Cable & Telecommunications Association have been severely impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. The cable systems on St. Maarten, St. Thomas, St. John, Puerto Rico, the British Virgin Islands, the Turks & Caicos, and the Bahamas were damaged, some much more so than others. In particular, communications to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, St. John and the British Virgin Islands have been sporadic. Many of these islands have very little infrastructure remaining, and airports and post offices have not yet reopened. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the staff members of the affected cable systems, and to all residents of these islands.
Shortly, the association will be issuing invoices for 2018 membership dues. Normally, members’ payments are mailed to St. Thomas. However, since post offices are not open, we are asking our members to send their checks to a secondary address in South Carolina. Full mailing details will be included with the invoices, which are emailed to the primary representative of each corporate member.
Due to the disruption of many facilities in the Caribbean, future announcements on the 2018 Annual Meeting will be somewhat delayed. We are hopeful that registration details will be available by the middle of November.
