We know the NISC story is best told by the people we serve every day. This year, we have embarked on a national advertising campaign highlighting the most important part of our organization – our Members. Whether our Members are deploying high-speed broadband or working to keep the lights on, they are driven to serve the people and communities of their service area. NISC is proud to be their technology partner in providing the innovations that help them do their job more safely and efficiently, and ultimately providing a better experience to those they serve. Our campaign highlights the linemen, the customer service representatives, the accountants, the engineers and the CEOs who have embraced technology for the purpose of service. These high-resolution images will be featured in print and digital advertising across our industry publications. The examples above were featured in NRECA’s RE Magazine and NTCA’s Rural Broadband publications. Thank you for your help and for your partnership with NISC. It is because of dedicated individuals like you that we’re driven to serve and powered by innovation. And we hope that with this new campaign, we will communicate our message clearly to all. If you have images you would like to feature, please contact Brett Grassmuck in the NISC Communications department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What does it mean to serve? This is a question we often ask ourselves when we think about our Members. Skip Prichard once said, “Servant leaders lead with others in mind.” Our solutions are designed in just that regard. We consider our Members’ daily struggles, their goals and dreams and how we can turn those dreams into reality. Serving others is the purpose behind why we do what we do. It’s what drives us. A huge aspect of that service is incorporating collaboration and clear communication. We work closely with our Members to ensure we are meeting or exceeding their expectations and delivering a valuable product. What never fails to astonish us however, is how much we learn from our Members. No matter how many ways we look at and teach about our products, there is always someone who sees it from a different perspective. The applications for our products are endless, and no one understands this better than the Members who use them every day. From this notion, we have learned that oftentimes the students make the best teachers. Our Member-led sessions have become a vital piece of the annual Member Information Conference and a testament to the principle of “Cooperation Amongst Cooperatives.” That’s why we’re asking you to share your story at the 2017 MIC. Whether an innovative use of our iVUE solutions or advice on implementation, we want to learn from you. The presentation does not need to be submitted in its entirety; just the topic and a brief description for now. We encourage you to submit presentations regarding any subject. Here are a few examples from last year that were a big success: Get Smart with SmartHub – Norvado Broadband Measured [...]
