While there is a lot that happens at NISC’s annual Member Information Conference (MIC) each year, the heart of the conference is really one thing: solutions. Whether it’s learning about the latest NISC innovations from NISC staff or hearing from NISC Members on how they solve problems and meet challenges, solutions are at the center of the three-day event. How do you use NISC software to solve problems in your office? What challenges are facing your organization, or your industry, that require a unique solution? Share your solutions at the 2018 MIC by submitting a presentation topic today. Collaboration is a big part of NISC, and the MIC is a great place for idea sharing and helping fellow NISC Members. Your stories help your colleagues get the most out of NISC solutions. They also help NISC understand the benefits of each solution and give us ideas on how we can improve them. If your presentation is accepted, you’ll receive $250 off your registration fee and a small gift. Also, every presenter has a chance to take home a MIC Member Experience Award! For the fourth-straight year, MIC Member Experience Awards will be presented on Day Three to the highest-rated Member sessions as selected by attendees through the MIC app. Winners will receive a customized award with the presenter’s name and session and a special prize. Ideas will be accepted until April 9, so submit your presentation for the 2018 MIC today and #ShareYourSolutions! MIC 2018 | September 11-13 | St. Louis, Mo. Click here to submit your idea!
The focus of NISC goes beyond just protecting the Member data that is entrusted to us. In the spirit of being a true technology partner, NISC now offers Cybersecurity Services to our Members, leveraging the best practices as well as the best-in-class technology NISC uses internally to help the NISC Membership improve their own internal cyber defenses.

It was a whirlwind week as NISC descended upon two major cities for NRECA’s TechAdvantage Conference in Nashville, Tenn., and NTCA’s RTIME Conference in Austin, Texas. We hosted two Annual Meetings in the span of just over 24 hours and constructed booths at both expos to visit with utility and telecom Members attending both shows.

Over 800 NISC Members joined us for lunch as the Executive Board announced last year’s election results and Vern shared his thoughts on NISC’s past, present and future. We were also pleased to have NRECA CEO Jim Matheson and NRECA International Senior Vice President Dan Waddle join us onstage as we presented NRECA International with a check for $25,000 as part of our Giving 50@50 campaign. Last Monday, we held our Telecom Annual Meeting at the Austin Convention Center with over 130 Members in attendance. It was great visiting with our telecom Members face to face, and sharing in our 50th celebrations with them. We also had an opportunity to present a check for $25,000 to Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) at NTCA’s RTIME Closing Session on Wednesday. In conjunction with our annual meetings, we also had an opportunity to visit with Members and prospects at the NISC booth at both the TechAdvantage and RTIME expos. The expos were a great opportunity for our RBMs and Sales Managers to connect with Members and visitors on NISC’s latest solutions and product offerings. We were excited this year to focus on advancements with Cybersecurity Services, iVUE Connect and our broadband initiative [...]
