The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) announced that they have reached agreement to end their formal affiliation and that CEA has decided to withdraw from its sector affiliation with EIA. The termination is effective as of Jan. 1, 2005. The two associations will continue to share physical space at their mutual headquarters in Arlington, VA, U.S.

The agreement ends a long-standing relationship between EIA, CEA and CEA's preceding organizations, the Consumer Electronics Manufacturers Association and the Consumer Electronics Group. The move follows a 1999 decision by the EIA Board of Governors to allow separate incorporation for its sector associations. CEA became a separately incorporated organization in 2000.

"EIA and CEA have enjoyed a long and valuable affiliation, and I believe going forward there will be many opportunities to collaborate on issues of common concern," Dave McCurdy, EIA president, said. "EIA will continue in its mission to promote the market development and competitiveness of the U.S. high-tech industry through domestic and international policy efforts."

"This agreement marks a `win-win' for both CEA and EIA," said Kathy Gornik, CEA executive board chairman and EIA board member and president of Thiel Audio Products. "This move allows both organizations to grow and prosper as we focus squarely on meeting the needs of our distinct constituencies. This is simply the natural evolution of CEA's separate incorporation and the new structure created by EIA in 1999.".

CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro added: "Our association has grown by leaps and bounds since we became separately incorporated…. We are excited to see what heights we can now reach as a fully independent association. We look forward to working with our volunteer leadership to leverage this opportunity to pursue the best interests of our members and our industry."
