“Lexco Cable joined TMA and immediately did what most members should do—raise their hands and ask a question,” said Kent Gladish, Senior Marketing and Sales Director at TMA. “TMA connects members to others who have solved that problem. David Karbin’s questions are excellent, challenging, and needed by others. In one case, the TMA Marketing committee will be asked to assist with a comprehensive answer.”
