At the heart of NISC are people. The people we serve. And the people who serve our Members. Through innovation, out-of-the-box ideas, collaboration and teamwork, NISC’s employees and Members collectively keep America and beyond connected and electrified.

There is no greater reward for our efforts than to spend a week with our Members. Our 2017 MIC Conference was just a month ago, but we continue to revel in the 2,400-plus turnout. Seeing so many Members in one space is gratifying, exciting and rewarding all at once.

Our opening video centered on the theme of the MIC: Driven to Serve. We continue to share it at our Regional Meetings, which are held in conjunction with the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Regionals. We also shared it at the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA) Fall Conference. It is a message bearing repeating.

NISC and our Member-Owners were built on service, and that’s what encourages us every single day. NISC employees are driven to create, enhance or support the solutions that improve the lives of our Members. Our Members are driven to serve their communities by providing reliable and critical electric and telecommunication services.

Service means something different to each of us, but dedication to service is one notion that powers us. NISC and our Members, we’re all driven to serve. This video says it all.
