Greetings TEDPA Members!


The Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program Association (TEDPA) invites you to the 2017 TEDPA Conference “Striking it Rich with TEDPA.”


The Conference will be held on Sunday, September 10, 2017, thru Wednesday, September 13, at the Denver Marriott West in Golden, CO.


We believe the AGENDA will provide opportunities for EDPs to “strike it rich” as we extract riches from the different mines of challenges we face as an EDP.  We’ve reviewed your comments and suggestions from last year’s conference and have incorporated some of them into the 2017 AGENDA which promises to be filled with education regarding future equipment, hands on technology, networking and interaction with vendors from across the country.  Vendor participation is a crucial part of the TEDPA Conference as they welcome your meaningful feedback on their equipment and services.


To kick off the conference, TEDPA’s well attended and much enjoyed vendor reception will be held on Sunday evening.  You don’t want to miss this reception!


“Golden, Colorado is rich with culture, outdoor activities, scenic beauty, thriving businesses, and friendly people, but the City’s origins are largely thanks to another valuable resource – gold.  A small amount of gold discovered in Clear Creek attracted the area’s earliest settlers in the mid-19th century and Golden City quickly became an important supply stop for gold miners seeking their fortunes in the adjacent mountains.  Farmers soon discovered the rich soil in the valley that is now home to the Coors complex, and Golden City further swelled as coal mining and clay extraction industries settled in the area, utilizing the region’s ample natural resources.  Golden City became the capital of the federally recognized Colorado Territory in 1862, and the territorial legislature met from 1862 to 1867 in the building that is now home to the Old Capitol Grill restaurant.  By the end of the 1860s, Golden City had been elected the seat of Jefferson County and the capital of the provisional Jefferson Territory.  Locals were outraged when neighboring Denver snagged the honor of becoming capital of the newly formed state in 1876, but the loss of name distinction did nothing to dampen Golden’s vital growth – business was booming.  Today, with the official name of City of Golden, the town continues to thrive.  It offers residents and visitors an abundance of recreational, cultural and culinary opportunities. Come live, work and play with us in our modern town with an old west flair!”
