Denver, Colo., Sept. 20, 2023 — National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), a leading provider of enterprise software and solutions to utility and broadband companies, hosted powerful general sessions and engaging learning opportunities at the 2023 Member Information Conference (MIC), held Sept. 17-20 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver, Colo.
More than 3,100 NISC Members, guests, partners and staff, a MIC record-breaking crowd, attended 165 sessions focusing on the latest enhancements of the NISC Enterprise System, including nearly 50 Member-led sessions sharing best practices with fellow industry peers. Updates on the technology cooperative’s development and opportunities facing the utility and broadband industries were also spotlighted during the event.
NISC also welcomed more than 40 exhibiting partners and vendors in the Partner Pavilion, showcasing a variety of solutions and services valuable to Member organizations. The Partner Pavilion also housed the ever-popular NISC demonstration booth and Solutions Lab, where NISC subject matter experts showcased the latest NISC innovations.
“There is nothing more exhilarating than spending a week with our Members, guests and partners, sharing ideas, discussing challenges and quite simply just catching up,” said Doug Remboldt, NISC President and CEO. “This record-breaking crowd was filled with people from around the country, Canada and the South Pacific who truly care about the service they bring their beloved communities. The role NISC plays in that is never taken lightly. If there is one message I hope they take home, it’s that we pledge to keep delivering on the value of NISC’s solutions, service and support to ensure they can continue serving their communities with the greatest care.”
In addition to a week of dynamic learning, the 2023 MIC also included:
Each year during the MIC, attendees come together to learn, collaborate, and in true co-op fashion, give back via a Co-op Strong event for charity. As part of the 2023 MIC, Members, partners, guests and employees supported Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book-gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth to age 5, no matter their family’s income. Combining donations and Co-op Strong t-shirt proceeds, more than $10,000 was raised.
NISC hosted exclusive events allowing MIC attendees to explore the Front Range of the Rockies, with Sunset Yoga, Paint the Rockies and Dinner & a Comedy Trio.
