interested parties, including members, 
vendors, regulators, legislators and the 
general public, in an ongoing effort to

HOW TO JOIN CALCOM
You can become an Associate 
Member of the California 
Communications Association!
Benefits
The benefits of becoming a member are 
readily obvious as you page through our 
directory & magazine and scope out the 
website. CalCom creates opportunities 
for you to meet and interact with our 
member companies, the Incumbent Local 
Exchange Carriers (ILECs) of California. In 
addition, we keep track of other vendor 
companies and their employees so you 
will be able to find them when you need 
them.
But most important, CalCom actively 
serves its members by making sure the 
California Public Utilities Commission and 
state legislators have the information 
they need to make rational decisions. 
CalCom committees, staffed entirely 
by member and associate company 
volunteers, are very active and frequently 
set up meetings with key regulators and 
members of the Legislature to bring their 
views directly to the decision makers.
As a member you will receive:
• A voice at the California Public Utilities 
Commission and in the California 
Legislature
• Discounts on services and CalCom items 
for sale
• Opportunities to meet and interact with 
California’s ILEC management and key 
employees
• Access to the members-only section of 
our website
• Regular news updates on the website
• A listing in the CalCom Membership 
Directory
• A copy of the CalCom Membership 
Directory
CalCom sponsors the largest trade show 
in the western United States, designed 
specifically to bring the best the market 
has to offer to our members and 
associates. 
Associate members who supply the ILECs 
have a voice through our very active 
Suppliers’ Committee. This committee 
meets frequently and plans at least two 
golf events a year, in addition to planning 
the Tech Expo. The committee is also a 
resource for CalCom training courses.
Membership dues are only $400 a year
If you’re interested in being a part of 
all this, it’s easy to do. Complete the
