2009 Telecom Association Members Choice Award Logo

Who Can Vote

"Active and independent" telecom agents, auditors, consultants, VARs and or other "1099" business owning individuals who distribute or recommend telecom or data solutions directly to businesses and who have an informed opinion about which solution providers do the best job can become free registered voting members of TA and nominate and vote for those providers qualified to be called the “Members Choice”.

The voting eligible status of all TA members casting ballots will be verified by TA. "Active" is minimally defined as having a publicly accessible business telephone number that answers in the member's name or business. "Independent" is minimally defined as the capability of representing more than one vendor. Only one "voter" per agency is allowed to cast votes. TA reserves for itself the final authority to qualify voters. All votes cast are considered provisional until qualified and accepted by Telecom Association.

Who Can't Vote

W-2 employees, customers, friends and family can not vote. Master Agents can not vote for themselves. Agent managers can not vote for their own company. "Internet only" agents that do not communicate directly with customers can not vote.


Eligibility to Display TA “Members Choice” Award Logos

While any winning vendor may state in written publications that they won a specific TA Members Choice award category, only current paid TA vendor members may display the copyrighted image of any of the TA Members Choice award logos or badges.

In 2010, the award rules were changed so that only currently paid TA vendor members could be nominated to win a Members Choice award.
