About & Blog Mission
CTIA-The Wireless Association® is an international nonprofit membership organization that has represented the wireless communications industry since 1984. Membership in the association includes wireless carriers and their suppliers, as well as providers and manufacturers of wireless data services and products.
The association advocates on behalf of its members at all levels of government.

This includes the voluntary industry guidelines; programs that promote mobile device recycling and reusing; and wireless accessibility for individuals with disabilities.
CTIA also supports numerous important industry initiatives, such as GrowingWireless.com to provide parents with tools and information to educate themselves so they may teach their kids how to use wireless technology responsibly; "go wireless, go green" campaign to educate consumers and policymakers about the industry's numerous eco-friendly initiatives and activities; "On the Road, Off the Phone," a teen-focused safe driving public service announcement campaign; AccessWireless.org, a resource for consumers to research and find information on accessible wireless products and services; and text4baby, a free mobile educational service to promote the birth of healthy babies.
