The CEDIA IPRO Affinity Group was formed when IPRO was integrated into CEDIA in 2017. This initiative carries forward the IPRO mission of advancing the manufacturer representative business in the custom home technology space.
This group represents professional representative firms throughout the United States.
Why Should You Join the CEDIA IPRO Affinity Group?
You are an island in a volatile sea of changing market and technology trends, vendor politics, and dealer transitions. Is your organization equipped to anticipate change before it can damage your business?
We tirelessly seek to promote the role of the representative, protect the role of the representative, and improve the representative’s life in our industry.
How to Join
Manufacturer representative firms that join CEDIA are automatically included in the CEDIA IPRO Affinity Group at no additional charge.
Benefits include: Annual Conference
The IPRO annual Conference is the only industry event focused upon the needs of the manufacturer's representative. The Conference emphasis is on educational courses geared to your changing market and networking dynamics. The Conference is a framework for bringing principals together, and the real magic occurs as a result of interaction and group dynamics. It's a non-competitive environment where concepts are born and challenges are resolved. It is your only representative-firm-based resource — a significant advantage. General Counsel
IPRO has retained the services of Steven Mitchell Sack as General Counsel. Members may contact Steven at any time to request legal advice pertaining to your representative business. He is available to members for telephone consultation at no charge, along with other benefits. A detailed statement of services that are available from Steven is available from the IPRO office.

It serves to create and maintain business relationships, the foundation of our industry, and keeps our business partners more informed about field sales activities.
