Who are your members?
Our members are imaging supply companies including toner cartridge remanufacturers and office supply stores as well as computer and printer repair companies.
How do you represent members interest?
The Int’l ITC:
Works for passage and enforcement of legislation favorable to our industry.
Defends members and our industry from unfair business and trade practices as well as misleading information and advertising that is antirecycling and anti-environmental.
Hosts ConsumerChoice.info, the foremost source of information for end-users of recycled/remanufactured office imaging supplies.
Issues informative e-mail and fax blasts when events of significance are breaking.
Supports our State Chapters across the US and affiliates abroad.
How are you international?
Our membership is drawn from businesses in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
We maintain affiliations and coordinate activities with similar organizations in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, South America, Canada, Japan, and Australia.
Cartridge recycling/remanufacturing and sales is a global industry requiring a global voice.
What’s “in it for me” if I join the Int’l ITC?
Tangible benefits include free admittance to any chapter meeting and access to the growing members-only section of our website, which will provide downloadable materials for members such as marketing pieces, newsletter templates, reprints of articles and more.
Intangible Benefits include being part of the only trade association for our industry with a mission to promote and protect the industry as well as educate its members. The RadioShack case is an example, ITC was able to quickly get an investigation by a legislator under way to stop RadioShack from falsely advertising that remanufactured product use will void a customer’s warranty. As a trade association with members all over the world, legislators listen when we bring legitimate problems to their attention. As a business owner, you need to run your business. As a trade association, we need to make unfair practices don’t stand in your way.
Other benefits include a venue for networking with fellow members through chapter meetings and our members only online database. Members often use this database to contact members in other states. They appreciate being able to refer their customers who need service in another state to another remanufacturer.
Involvement on your part thru committee membership allows you to be part of decision making in areas of your interest.
What are chapter meetings?
Chapter meetings are held throughout the year across the U.S. and are open to anyone. Members can attend any meeting for free. The usual meeting runs from 9am to 3pm with continental breakfast and lunch provided. Speakers include college professors, SBA instructors, vendors and members with expertise in hot topics. Roundtable discussions as well as plenty of networking time round out the day.
How do members become involved in the association?
Opportunities for Involvement:
1) Contact Your State Chapter President: There are always opportunities within every chapter to contribute your ideas and to join a project committee such as consumer education, environmental partnering, lobbying and legislative action.
2) Become a Chapter Committee Chairperson and work with local members and the members of our national board of directors on identified association priorities and issues.
3) Bring You Ideas and Concerns to the National Level: Our staff members are assigned areas of responsibility and serve as contacts for members of a host of issues and projects.
4) Attend a chapter meeting. Registration is free to members.

The Int’l ITC is a membership association. We work for and with our membership in everything we do. Your voice and your participation are essential elements of your association.
