RCA exhibits at PCIA Wireless Infrastructure Show

Club offers info to 1500 convention-goers

V.G. Duvall and Tom Thornton.

V.G. Duvall of Montgomery, Texas and Tom Thornton of San Angelo, Texas greeted visitors to the RCA exhibit at the PCIA Wireless Infrastructure show in Orlando, Florida on October 2 and 3. The exhibit provided visitors an opportunity to see RCA’s publications, new and old, and to receive a membership leaflet. At least three filled out membership application forms on the spot, and a dozen more took forms with them for possible later use. Tom said that Bruce McIntyre and Mercy Contreras also helped to staff the booth. “The exhibit hours were short; we didn’t need a lot of people,” he said.

Thank-you to V.G. and Tom for handling this responsibility on behalf of the Club, and to PCIA for making the exhibit space available. That’s V.G. on the left.
